Welcome to the White Book of Ski Areas.

This site is and has always been for avid skiers and boarders planning their next mountain experience. If your prime selection criteria are snow quality, terrain, and the quality of the lift system, you’re our kind of rider.

Now in our 42nd year; we’ve been helping skiers and boarders find their next mountain destination since 1975. We’re a fast-find, statistical database/directory of ski areas in North America. Within our pages you’ll find mountain listings including the vertical feet, annual snowfall, lift system, type of terrain, skiable acreage, number of trails, number of parks and pipes, ticket pricing, tubing parks, skating rinks, cat-skiing, heli-skiing, cross-country centers, and night skiing. We’re also posting more video than ever before to provide you with a taste of what you can expect to find at areas and resorts that interest you.

Be sure to visit The White Blog. It’s where you’ll find the latest news about ski area and resort developments, commentary, interviews, personality profiles and features from me. Women will appreciate Women in the Snow, a column of snow related topics of interest to women written by my wife Ann.

For detailed resort information, we encourage you to visit the websites of the areas you’re considering for your next trip. Our listings provide phone numbers, GPS coordinates, and live links to the resort websites for your convenience. Once you’ve made your choice (or if you’re like me, choices) just click the area’s link and you’re on your way. We also provide ski area location maps to help you decide just how many and which resorts you can squeeze into your trip.

We hope you enjoy touring our site and use it to help choose your next mountain conquest.

Every ski trip needs a destination. Find yours at the White Book of Ski Areas.

Happy Trails!
