Ski Resorts of the West

Below is a partial list of the Ski Resorts that are located West of the Rockies.The table below tells you the year the resort was established, if they have an adaptive ski program, what National Forest they are administed by, their owner, what age you have to be to ski free (- is under this age and + is over this age), acres, vertical, terrain variation and number of runs.

You will find a link to the history of a resort if we have any information. Data for the table and the history was collected using the NSAA newsletter and the resort's web sites.

Obviously, this is still a work in progress and information is being added constantly.
