7. Sierra-At-Tahoe, California

With over 480 inches of snow, more than 2,000 acres of rideable terrain, a chilled-out vibe, and the South Shore’s only Superpipe, Sierra has once again earned a top ten ranking. Drop the lines of Huckleberry Canyon, hot-lap the pillows in Castle Creek, suck up the lift-accessed cliffs off Avalanche Bowl, or enjoy running the five parks under that bluebird California sun-just be sure to save some energy for those long Sierra nights.
