Ketchum/Sun Valley rounds out the list of international destinations, joining the likes of Zermatt, Switzerland, Chamonix, France, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, and Stowe, Vt. The West actually claimed quite a few spots on the list. Other regional ski towns on the short list include Bend, Ore.; Jackson, Wyo.; Bozeman and Whitefish, Mont.; Crested Butte, Aspen, Telluride and Steamboat Springs, Colo.; and Park City, Utah.
Of Ketchum, the magazine had this to say:
"The upscale mountain and its opulent lodges still carry the grandeur of their pre-war days while the old mining and sheep town of Ketchum, population 2,689, maintains a rustic elegance, with gourmet restaurants and steak-and-microbrew saloons in century-old brick buildings."
