Clearly NZ isn't marketing itself to the rest of the world quite the same way it is in Australia. If you say New Zealand in Australia, skiing is pretty much the first thing that comes to mind, but it's the least guessed answer here.

There are at least 25 ski fields in New Zealand (most in the South Island). And some include whole mountainsides.

Germany is not very mountainous. Alpine skiing can mostly be done along the southern frontier.

There are ski resorts outside of the Alps in Germany most noteably in the Black Forest, the Erzgebirge, the Bavarian Forest and the Sauerland but these resorts are rather small with only a few ones having more than 5-10km of slopes.

Finland is quite flat. Lots of space for cross-country skiing, but not so much for downhill.

Yep, don't know about North America, but in Europe nobody mesures acres of slopes, always the length.

Wow! Surprising that Slovenia isn't there, don't know if that's just me being stupid but I'm pretty sure they have a few resorts there. France and the US are tight, would of thought France would have slightly more but there we go!

you should make a quiz comparing skiresort area to general area. I bet Austria would win the battle >.

I think this quiz could be updated once again, some countries are improving there ski fields very quickly and may appear in this top : bulgaria, montenegro, andorra, china, kazakstan for example.
