These are the most popular ski destinations in North America: Here’s where California resorts rank

A recently released study ranked the top 10 ski destinations in North America and multiple ski resorts in California made the list.

HomeToGo, a vacation rental marketplace, released its annual Ski Season Report, which ranked the top ski destinations in North America.

Researchers behind the report looked at the top 100 most searched ski destinations on the website and narrowed it down to 48 areas with 44 miles of slope or more.
