Playboy Ranks Alta/Snowbird #1

by Ski Utah Yeti November 30 2011 4 Comments

As a good friend once said, "As any true skier knows, receiving the number one pick by Playboy magazine is, hands down, the most prestigious ranking you can receive."

Maybe that's not exactly the case, but it is pretty remarkable that the notoriously scandalous publication should decide to choose Alta and Snowbird in wholesome Utah as their number one ski destination pick. That said, Playboy credited Utah's easy access, feather-like snow and perfect mix of casual blue runs/steep black diamond terrain as the deciding factors for the acclaim. The magazine also suggested readers push their boundaries by embarking on an unforgettable day of heli-skiing with Wasatch Powderbird Guides. And, who doesn't want to top-off a perfect day of powder skiing with a refreshing brew in a cozy lodge while watching the sun set over majestic Mount Superior?

Next time someone asks me if you can get a drink in Utah, I think I'll reply, "Playboy seems to think so."
