ESPN just launched a competition to determine which North American ski resort has the best terrain. Similar to their other "Real" contest in ski and snowboard categories, this will pit seven iconic resorts against each other. The rules are actually pretty awesome, something every core skier and snowboarder can get behind. All of the footage in these videos had to be shot over the 2016/17 winter season and exclusively feature resort-sponsored athletes who ski and ride each resort on a regular basis. Only natural terrain features were allowed (no snowcat-made kickers), and all footage is of places you can get to from the top of a lift.
We have some classic spots battling it out including our home mountain of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. We may be partial to our backyard hill but there are plenty of rad shred destinations to vote for.
Voting ends at 9 a.m. PT on Monday, November 13.
