Washington Post ski guide delivers East, West and European delights

The common wisdom would suggest the best places to ski are locales in the Rocky Mountains, Northwest and Northeast. Truth is, quite often the best place to ski is wherever you can get quickly. Which is why we like the great informational map the Washington Post has created for its Ski Guide 2010, because it points to places in less likely ski havens such as West Virginia (did you know Snowshoe Mountain AVERAGES 180 inches of snow annually?) and Pennsylvania.

They also offer a nice piece on cross-country skiing in New Hampshire and an intriguing profile of the Spanish ski resort, Baqueira-Beret, where skiing isn’t always front and center. Read the piece and you’ll understand. You purists, however, will be glad to know the report includes an homage to the old-fashioned values and high-quality skiing at tiny Arapahoe Basin in Colorado, whose notoriously steep Pallavicini run is pictured here.

Don’t forget: you can enter as often as you like in Swany’s Outdoor Adventures Video Contest to win prizes ranging from gloves to helmet cams. Get started here.
