If anyone would know a good ski resort when they see one, it would be Ski Magazine. They just named two Wyoming locations as ski resorts of the year.

A total of nine ski resorts received this honor from Ski Magazine, so it's no small thing that Wyoming managed to land two of the top spots. It's no surprise that one of them is Jackson Hole.

The other Wyoming resort that ended up in the top nine was Grand Targhee.

You'll have to excuse me if this inspires me to stare at the National Weather Service Wyoming snow forecast page until the powder appears.

If you check out the Ski Magazine resorts of the year story, you'll notice there are some Montana and Idaho places that also got honors.
