10 Perfect Ski Trips
Surefire ways to escape the lift lines this winter

We love ski resorts—really. The problem is, so does everybody else. If you want to swap crowds and manicured trails for some ungroomed fun, better head outside the boundary gates.

Here are ten great sliding and riding getaways: telemark and snowboard camps; low-cost day trips in choppers and snowcats; a high-alpine tour so tough it's called Forbidden; and a new retro ski area with lift-assisted backcountry runs. There's even a new way to ski, with a kite and a bunch of rope.

So break free—cruiser carpets and high-speed quads will still be there when you return from the wilds.

First Stop: Mount Bailey, Oregon >>
