Wow that's a lot.

In the last 15 years, Blue this season and Jack frost once (twice if you include the time I took my wife, had to hike halfway up the slope and took one run on my own then left). 

Pretty unimpressive.

Plenty of time to visit new places... Plus you're just getting back into skiing if I recall. My list pales in comparison to others on here.

I'm not sure of a bucket list because all that I had on there was to ski the Alps and now that is checked off. I'd love to ski more in Europe. Italy. France. I still haven't skied anywhere in CO or CA so somewhere there. Alaska would be cool. Japan would be awesome on a good snow year. A heli day or trip. I dunno, I'm grateful for where I've been able to ski so if I didn't get to any other place other than where I've been I wouldn't be dissappointed. I just copied my stats from the site, but these are the areas I've been to.

Of these: 

Favorite in the East: Killington 

Favorite in the West: Brighton, Jackson, Pow (all for different reasons)

Favorite Pacific: Whistler

Favorite Europe: 4 Vallées

Blue Mountain, PA      
Whistler/Blackcomb, BC      
Big Boulder, PA      
Jackson Hole, WY      
Powder Mt, UT      
Snowbasin, UT      
Camelback, PA      
Killington, VT      
Jack Frost, PA      
Canyons, UT      
Snowbird, UT      
Mt. Mik, PA      
Steven's Pass, WA      
Mt. Baker, WA      
Sno Mountain, PA      
Park City, UT      
Deer Valley, UT      
Bear Creek, PA      
Brighton, UT      
Elk Mountain, PA      
Montage Mountain

To be honest I don’t have any bucket list places I want to do.  Goals are more to get better in the backcountry and expand the terrain I can handle there  

@RidgeRacer next season you will have ticked Telluride off your list  and glad to see CB is on you favorite list!

As much as I'd love to, Telluride next season will be tough. We'll see though. Outside of PA, Arizona Snowbowl and Whiteface are likely for next season.

Interested in your experience at Wintergreen...

Not a very interesting experience.  My dad lived in VA for a few years when I was in middle school/high school and we went there once when I was visiting over Christmas break.  Was half-open and pretty small.  If I remember correctly you park at the top like Jack Frost. That was the most interesting thing to me at the time, having only skied where you take a lift to begin up to that point.
