DCSkiers, where have you skied during your lifetime? I noticed in an earlier post that John L said he had skied at about 60 areas. I thought it might be interesting to start a thread detailing anyplace that a DCSkier has slid down a hill, whether on a board, skis, monoskis, cross country skis, whatever.
I'll keep the tally somehow.
Here goes for me, The Colonel. In 37 years (I first skied at age 29) I have managed to ski at the following 76 ski areas, some have since gone out of business.

In the Mid-Atlantic:
In VA: Bryce, Rappahannock, Skyline, Wintergreen, Cherokee, Massanutten, Homestead,

In WV: Snowshoe, Timberline, Canaan Valley, Terre Alta (Alpine Lake - when there was alpine skiing)

In MD: Wisp, Braddock Heights

In PA: Seven Springs, Laurel Mt., Hidden Valley, Alpine Mt., Jack Frost, Liberty (and Charnita), Whitetail, Roundtop, Shawnee, Camelback, Big Boulder, Elk, Blue Knob, Ski Big Bear, Spring Mt., Blue Mountain, Tussey Mt., Doe Mt.

In New England and Eastern Canada: Jay Peak, Bolton Valley, Mohawk, Mt. Tom, Mt. Southington, Brodie, Ski Sundown, Mt. Snow, Killington, Haystack, Mont Sainte-Anne, Stoneham, Mont Sutton, Bromont, Owl's Head, Whiteface, Loon, Waterville Valley, Sunday River, Pico, Jiminy Peak, Ski Butternut, Windham, Mont Orford,

In the Western States and Canada: Alta, Snowbird, Park City, Deer Valley, Snowbasin, Powder Mt., Brian Head, Brighton, Solitude, Park West (now The Canyons),Whistler, Blackcomb, Squaw Valley, Vail, Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper, Winter Park,

Elsewhere:
Europe:
-In Austria: Igls, Mutters

This is going to be hard, I hope I don't forget any!

VT: Sugarbush, Glen Ellen, MRG, Stratton, Mt. Snow, Magic Mtn, Timber Ridge (later Timberside), Bromley, Haystack, Carinthia, Killington, Pico (12)

MA: Brodie, Jiminy Peak, Bousqet, Berkshire East, Mt. Tom, Otis Ridge (6)

CT: Mohawk Mtn, Mt. Southington, Ski Sundown (3)

VA: Wintergreen (1)

WV: Snowshoe, Silver Creek (including before bought by SS), Timberline, Canaan Valley (4)

Utah: Park City (1)

CA: Squaw Valley (1)

So that's 28 ski areas in about 21 years of skiing. I have really only skied 8-9 different ski areas since moving down to VA in 1991. Most of my diversification happened while living in CT where I grew up, and while in college in Mass. Since 2002, I have skied exclusively in the mid-A. I am due for a ski trip to VT or out west!

Of those 28 ski areas,

2 went out of business: Mt. Tom and Brodie

1 closed and reopened (Magic)

6 were absorbed into other areas: Timber Ridge, Glen Ellen, Carinthia, Pico (now sort of independent again), Haystack (cut loose again), Silver Creek

Some interesting notes -- I grew up in the Berkshire foothills in CT. Ski Sundown, Mt. Southington, Otis Ridge, and Mohawk Mtn were within 20-45 minutes drive. I liked Mohawk and Sundown the best.

In college, Mt. Tom was 20 minutes away, and the other Mass ski areas were 1-1.5 hours drive.

I skied Sugarbush heavily from 1989-1997, usually during my winter break from college (WNEC) and grad school (GWU). I had a patroller buddy at Sugarbush and had a place to stay and many comp lift tickets! I was last up there in winter 1998 (tried to teach future wife to ski, bad idea).

First trip out west was Park City Utah in April 98. I still remember sitting in my apartment in Newport News VA in early April, lamenting that skiing was over in the mid-A and I didn't have many ski days in that season. There were some ski races on TV, and I noticed the snow looked great out West. Being single and young at the time, I literally yelled "F&@k-it" out loud and got on the phone with a ski tour company and booked a week long trip starting two days later. Phenomenal skiing -- 8-10" of fresh powder several days in a row. Came back home with a dark tan and a new outlook on life!

Dang, looks like 63 if I didn't screw up the addition and not forget an area or two.

I need to start catching up on the Colonel. 76 is pretty amazing.

For the fellow Nutmeg/Constitution Staters, I grew up in Wolcott (prolly a few miles as the crow flies from Mount? Southington) and worked many summers at Lake Compounce.

Does Astro-Turf count? My first time down a hill on skis was on fake grass covered in little plastic pellets, with in-ground sprinkler heads popping up once in a while to wet everything down (not while "skiers" were on the slopes). Since skis and boots were involved I'm counting it on my list, but technically there wasn't any snow. I'll take it off the list and reduce my count by one if The Colonel so rules. Growing up in Alabama certainly didn't help my early skiing career, but I was lucky enough to marry into a family of ski fanatics, and my life list is now 37 areas and growing. Heck, my kids are 9 and 11, and their list is already 16 including Canada, Colorado, Utah, Montana and California. They probably don't even know you can ski on plastic grass. The 37 are, from approximately west to east:
Whistler/Blackcomb, BC
Crystal Mtn, WA
Mammoth, CA
Big Sky, MT
Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee, WY
Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Brighton, Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, Park City, Deer Valley, The Canyons, UT
Steamboat, Winter Park, Vail, Copper, A Basin, Keystone, CO
Ober Gatlinburg, TN* ( *AstroTurf)
Sapphire Valley, NC
Timberline, Whitegrass, WV
Wintergreen, Bryce, VA
Wisp, MD
Liberty, Whitetail, Roundtop, Blue Knob, Seven Springs, PA
Hunter, NY
Stowe, Haystack, VT
Garmisch, Germany

Of course the fake snow in TN counts. You were skiing.
I can remember "skiing" on grass at Bryce in the summer on what looked like little tank treads attached to my ski boot. Actually was fun, except for falling down.

Small world; I grew up in Burlington and remember going to the "old" Lake Compounce as a kid, and the new Lake Compounce when I was in high school in the mid 80s. My brother was a lifeguard there around 88-90. I hear the old wooden roller coaster is still running. And here's a funny thing -- apparently they put in a chair lift up the mountain (for scenic rides) at some point. I was mountain biking on the backside of the mountain about 10 years ago and was surprised to come across the top bullwheel/station at one point! I thought I had gotten really lost and was at Mt. Southington for a minute...

Kilternan (Dublin, Ireland) - Dendex surface and actually on skis, not a board

Andorra - Soldeu and El Tarter (site of transition and addiction to board)

Scotland: Somewhere outside Edinburgh, again on dendex.

Locally: Wisp, 7 Springs, Whitetail, Liberty, Snowshoe, Bryce

Utah: Brighton, Snow Basin, Powder Mountain, Park City, The Canyons, Solitude, Snowbird

As far as I'm concerned dendex counts in the line up. If you're ballsy/desperate enough to ride that crap and risk the horrific injuries that can go with it you deserve to count it.

40 yrs of skiing, all based in DC area.
I've been to about 55 areas now. Many of the same as rest of you. I really want to get back to Europe's Alps, but finances and family obligations may delay that for a few years, although I may soon have an Italian connection:-)

A few memorable US sleepers/favs:
Mid-Atlantic: If you haven't been there yet - Blue Knob, PA when they have natural snow, especially if you want to try local glades or test yourself on fairly challenging steeps.
New England: Wildcat, NH, nearest thing to an "alpine" like environment in the East. Additionally, I still contend that Killington is an awesome place on an empty day.
Colorado: Loveland. You have to do the biggies like Vail and Aspen, but sometime check out this so-called smaller place, so close to Denver and with marvelous above treeline terrain, very accessible by blue and single black skiers/boarders.
Utah: Snowbird (and Alta), well known and well deserved Mecca for advanced skiers and powder freaks.
California: I've never been to the two most highly regarded California areas - Mammoth and Squaw, but I did get to what many rank as number 3, Kirkwood. It had very impressive steeps and lived up to its reputation for some of the best snow in the state when I was there in 2005.

I have been hesitating to post because I feel so small compared to everyone else.I definitely have an inferiority complex right now... But I guess being only 21 and coming from a non-skiing family I am not doing to bad. All together I have skied at 5 resots:

WV: Canaan, Timberline, Snowshoe
MD: Wisp
VT: Killington

Being young I still have plenty of time to get my days in so I am not all that worried. I am also in the process of looking at grad schools and although skiing is not my "top" priority, I am keeping it somewhat in mind. I also plan to have a job some day that will allow me to get a good bit of skiing in (although probably not quite as much as I would want).

Not bad at all David. I was in my 40's before i had skied at 5 different resorts. I remember my first trip to a really BIG resort, Seven Springs. Man i wuz scared to death I'd get separated from my crew and be lost or worse get in over my head and die!

What prompted you to learn to ski?

I went on a church trip to Canaan when I was in the 8th grade. I sucked really bad but had a good time. I too was scared to death, especially when I came out of the lodge and looked up at the Meadows towering over. I tried Timber Run at the end of the day and got my butt whipped. Now everytime I go back to Canaan I laugh when I am riding up the beginners lift because the trail underneath it used to scare me. Also, everytime I go down Gravity I laugh because it used to be "if you could ski Gravity you were the greatest skier ever".

Ahh, the memories......

David, I think we all have stories like that. Even the smallest most podunk ski areas look pretty scary to a first timer. I started skiing as a teen, but most of my friends had skied since they were 4 years old and were just phenomenal. My first 2-3 times out were kind of rough, but I got some encouragement and stuck with it. And now it's become a life obsession!!

I do remember taking a beginner lesson the first time I ever skied, and crashing all over the place. A scant 2 years later I was back at the same place and got put in their advanced classes. It's really amazing how quickly you can advance at skiing if you get into it. What was once a fear-inducing bunny slope becomes too flat to even look at!

BTW David, I think the ski resort count is all relative. I was feeling lame that my total number was only in the 20s, compared to some other guys. I bet after you have skied 20+ years you'll have some good numbers. But I will predict that I level out soon -- I can see getting into the 30s but not going much higher than that. There are about 4-5 ski areas I want to add to my list and that's about it. Hey, maybe we can start another thread of places people haven't skied but want to.

When I first joined here, I said that I have skied "at least 100 ski areas". Well, I sat down and came up with 88 areas that I can definitely remember visiting. There were also a couple small areas that I can't remember in Illinois and Missouri plus a couple of rope tows on golf courses and of course, my Grandmother's back yard. Most of this was done when I was young, single and liked to drive long distances for the fun of it(1972-1982). Here it is...

Pennsylvania(20): Hidden Valley (first ski trip), Seven Springs, Bear Rocks (Lost), Boyce Park, Wildwood Highlands (Lost), Camp Soles (Lost), White Mountain/Haseltine Hills (Lost), Buckaloons/Peak'N Mountain (Lost), Blue Knob, Laurel Mountain, Sugarbush (Lost), Ski Liberty, Big Boulder, Camelback, Elk Mountain, Montage, Mystic Mountain, Blue Mountain, Ski Roundtop, Tussey Mountain

Ohio(5): Brandywine, Alpine Valley, Boston Mill, Snow Trails, Mad River

Indiana(2): Bendix Hill, Mt. Wawassee (both Lost I think)

New York(10) :Holiday Valley, Peak N'Peak, Cockaigne, Kissing Bridge, Swain, Bristol, Powder Mills, Whiteface, Gore, Hunter Mountain

Utah(6): Park City, Alta, Snowbird, Solitude, Brighton, Deer Valley

Colorado(18): Vail, Beaver Creek, Arrowhead, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Keystone, A-Basin, Loveland, Crested Butte, Steamboat Springs, Howelsen Hill, Snowmass, Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands, Berthoud Pass (Lost?), Winter Park, Ski Cooper, Area near Denver on I-70 (Lost, can't remember the name)

Vermont(6): Killington, Mt. Snow, Pico, Stowe, Stratton, Okemo

New Hampshire(3): Loon, Waterville Valley, Crotched Mountain

Maine(2): Sugarloaf, Sunday River

Eastern Canada(1): Mt. Ste. Anne

Western Canada:(3): Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, Mt. Norquay

Maryland(1): Wisp

West Virginia(4): Snowshoe, Timberline, Oglebay, Canaan

Virginia(2): Winterplace, Wintergreen

North Carolina(2): Beech, Sugar

Montana(1): Big Sky

Michigan(2): Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands

Some big holes in this list that I hope to fill some day: Jackson Hole, California/Tahoe, Oregon/Washington, Whitetail :-), Telluride.

A number of my exotic ski area visits have been one-day-wonders and not all that great for logging actual ski mileage. A great powder weekend at a familiar local resort like Timberline WV, Blue Knob PA, etc. can get you more quality ski time than wandering around as a lost tourist for a day at a big place like Heavenly, CA.

2) Whitetail
3) Seven Springs
4) Timberline
5) Blue Mountain
6) Blue Knob
7) Ski Roundtop
8) Ski Windham (for a Nastar national feeder, one day)

11) Park City
12) Vail
13) Breckenridge
14) Deer Valley
15) The Canyons
16) Snowbasin
17) Nemacolin Resort and spa

hmmm gee uhhh let's think.

ok 1-14 were ok with 9-16 being really ok, but #17 was the best because I totally seduced and had hot sex over and over again with a chick I was working on for some time. She's getting married in June and I just wrote a great poem for her.

I think the point here is you can be a great skier, but nothing beats having a lover curse you because she's hot for your equipment (not ski equipment, dummy!!!).

I totally ruled this weekend straightlining Great Scott Chute, but forget that .... some things like the number of places you've skied are so-totally-diminutive compared to the number of encounters you've had with a hot lover.

Nemacolin does still have a ski area, and it's called Mystic Mountain. It's one of the resorts DCSki covers:

http://www.dcski.com/resorts/viewprofile.php?resort=mysticmountain

It's not huge (only 300 feet vertical), but my sister and brother-in-law have skied there and had a great time. They went with low expectations (for the skiing) and were pleasantly surprised. But skiing is only one of many activities available at Nemacolin. Crush provided an example of another one!

Let's see... Where have I skied? I'll probably forget some, but here's my list, in no particular order:

- Seven Springs
- Ski Roundtop
- Whitetail
- Wisp
- Hidden Valley Resort
- Camelback
- Snowshoe
- Killington
- Vail
- Winter Park
- Aspen/Snowmass
- Mammoth Mountain

Hmm.. I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

These are downhill areas. I grew up in Colorado, where my family went skiing cross-country throughout the winter -- I'm not sure if I was walking or skiing first. We most often skied in the Crystal Lakes / Red Feather area of Colorado. Whitetail was actually the first downhill ski area I skied at (and not until I was in college).

.......matter it does. I think anyone who posts here knows it's about more than powder days. We did have a great day E., calling what we skied that day powder is a stretch but we skied it, we smiled and laughed and we will do it again. The mountain is my mistress, not the powder. Where we have had our *affairs* is fun to talk about, for me Snowbird is really under my skin, cannot get her out of my mind; but if the only place left for me to ski was the north face of the Tucker County landfill I'd still ski it and smile and laugh and we would do it again!

Maybe this brief sub-topic gives the colonel time to figure out how to compile the results, i thought we'd hear from some more people by now, everybody must be cloud skiing or working in the yard or something.
