Ski Magazine released its annual list of the 10 best East Coast resorts - "resort" being the word to keep in mind - this week, and topping the reader-review list for what seems to be the umpteenth year in a row was Quebec's Mount Tremblant.

In fact, no New England resort finished higher than third. New York's Whiteface took the second spot, followed by Stowe, Vermont. 

Here's how the list rounds out.

1. Tremblant
2. Whiteface
3. Stowe
4. Okemo
5. Stratton
6. Sugarloaf
7. Sugarbush
8. Sunday River
9. Smuggs
10. Loon

Hmm. Not so sure how we feel about that.Okemo and Stratton are better resorts than Sugarbush, Sugarloaf, and Sunday River? Of course, any of these lists are based on how resorts are tailored to fit certain individuals and families: ski school programs, distance, spas, shopping, etc. Still, this list seems to not take into account the most important aspect of a resort, which is, you know, how the place skis or rides. Novel concept.

In-depth profiles for each place on the list can be found here.
