    See, this is getting on the right track. The worst average skier count would have to be on the East Coast, down south near a major metropolitan area. What ever little ski hill that is near Charlotte, Atlanta (Beech, Wolf Mt. ?) would have the triple whammy of inexperienced southern skiers, city folk, and shit conditions.

    I've heard skiing Ober Gatlinburg is like being inside a looney tunes short.

    OK, now I've read thru the thread and can see the classic TGR over analyze at play here.

    By your standards:

    Worst - some shithole hill in China
    Best - Probably some small resort in Canada Rockies

    Appalachian Ski Mountain. Basically only ok if you never skied before, or are into park. I learned there.

    Which Resort has the Best/Worst Average Skier?

    Iíve only skied in North America and am mostly familiar with Colorado.

    I think there is a lot of good skiers at ABasin on the weekdays, especially if you are lapping Pali.

    Crested Butte also has a shitload of good skiers.

    Jackson had lots of good skiers when I went there.


    These mountains are the type that make you feel like an average skier compared to others.


    I saw a lot of gapers at heavenly.

    i like the 1 star campagain
    their marketing team has great imagination

    Worst was Mountain Creek in New Jersey.
    It was a scary scene to witness.
    I just felt unsafe because of the type of people around me.

    Best was Jackson Hole.
    No doubt.

    Las Lenas has to have the biggest difference between the bad and the good skiers.

    99,9% the Argentinian and Brazilian tourists suck, and the few South Americans who ski well are freedriders who fit in nicely with the North Americans and Europeans who travel there for southern hemispehre- season. Most are very good skiers

    I'm not sure the real questions are not:

    "What resort has the best skiers"
    "What resort has the worst skiers"

    "But if the question is which resort's average skier is the best", of all the places I've spent time, La Grave is the answer. There is simply no terrain or "iterneary" easier than the black runs at any decent western ski area. That is with out even getting into the navigation aspect. So the bottom 75% at any other area simply is not there. No rental shops, no ski school, no ski patrol (basically).

    All of the 'core' mountains are brimming with gapers on the weekends, and even third tier hills have a few ripping skiers on random weekdays.

    Yes, formerly Vernon Valley. It was way worse back in the 70s when snow making and grooming was not as good as today. We used to wait on lines 30-45 minutes to go down a run that could take 3 minutes if you took your time.

    So many beginners and they all rented and the ski shop never sharpened or tuned the rentals. Edges were like butter knives and it was an ice rink. The combination of so many crappy skiers falling and then laying all over the trails with the ice made it an obstacle course and difficult to get through a day without being taken out by kamikazes. Good times though

    IMO, average skier ability, worst = cataloochee, for these reasons. It's the most southern of the SE resorts boasting any sort of vert, and the closest to Atl. They've probably got the most serious snow making capability per acre in the US, maybe the world. Really an amazing system that get slopes open, literally, overnight. And while it's 16 skiable acres and 740 vert are pretty impressive; they are packing in the dominate share of every youth church bus out of florida georgia sc and alabama. an lemee tell ewe. there are quite a few of those busses in this neck of the woods. Bub.

    on a saturday the entire base can be a massive wall of people who think they are in one line or another. Good times!

    Best, toss up, IMO, between Whistler, Jackson Hole and Squaw.

    Iíve spent only 10 skiing WB. I did some excellent skiers, but mostly wealthy Texans and Mexicans wedging their way all over the place on the green runs off of every single lift.

    Iíve also spent 10 days at JH, and from that experience would say the average skiing ability is much much higher than Whistler.

    Iíve skied Squaw a bunch, but mostly on spring days, but would put the average skill level between WB and JH.

    I think the lack of major metro area nearby, and its rep as bad ass, helps keep all but a few gapers away from JH. The few I ran across had plenty of money. Someone has to stay at the 4 seasons.
