Overview

Introducing a unique series of international sport/travel guides: your favorite sports, Outside's top picks of the greatest places on earth to pursue them. Each guide is an invitation to take your first steps toward an active vacation of exploration.
Twenty of the world's most thrilling Alpine destinations, from classic resorts to off-piste powder stashes to heli-skiing and beyond. Skiers and snowboarders, prepare to realize your wildest travel dreams as we take you to twenty of the best mountains on the planet. They include: Alta and Snowbird's incomparable Utah powder; glitzy Aspen's motherload of overlooked backcountry; Whistler, B.C., and the secret of its fame and fortune; boundless adventures on the glaciers and couloirs of Chamonix, Verbier, Val d'Isere, and St. Anton in the European Alps; the lesser-known treasures at Fernie, B.C., Big Mountain, Montana, and La Grave, France; and finally some way-off-the-charts lines to be experienced in Alaska, Greenland, and Antarctica.
