More ski resort measurements...

Yesterday, I introduced Mr. Schrahe, from Montenius Consult, and explained that this patient man had measured all the large ski resorts, the world over. What I forgot to mention is that you can buy his report for about $115.00, something I didn't have the desire to do. Inside the complete study, you won't just find the ranking by total ski trails length, but also by the total area – now, that's interesting – and by Vertical drop.

So, before I forget, here is the ranking by skiable area. The number one is Sella Ronda, in the Italian Dolomite, near Val Gardena with 27,675 acres (112 km2) followed closely by France's Trois Vallées, around Courchevel, with 25,130 acres (101,7 km2) and Paradiski, also in France with 16,062 acres (65 km2). By contrast, the sum of Deer Valley and Park City is just 9,326 acres (37.7 km2), while a six Wasatch Resort interconnect would amount to a respectable 20,000 acres (81 km2).

Finally, in terms of vertical drop, two French resorts Les 2 Alpes leads the pack with 7,358 ft (2.243 m) followed by l'Alpe d'Huez at 7,217 ft (2,200 m). In North America, Whistler-Blackcomb only offers a vertical of 5,134 ft (1,565 m) and in the United States, Jackson Hole leads with just 4,140 ft (1,262 m)...
