A little weird that "Aspen" doesn't work for "Snowmass" IMO. I think it's officially called "Aspen Snowmass" and every Coloradan I know refers to Aspen Mountain and Snowmass collectively as just "Aspen"

Also it'd be nice if you took Mt. (or Mount) Revelstoke- I guess that's the name of the national park and not the ski area, but I got them confused.

Wonderful quiz though! I had fun.

Thank you for the feedback; I'm glad you enjoyed the quiz. I made the conscious decision to keep non-contiguous mountains separate (Aspen, Aspen Highlands, Buttermilk, Snowmass for example), while combining mountains that share a pass where you can ski from one to the other (Alta/Snowbird for example). My thought was that they don't really count as one resort unless they are linked by ski runs, and preferably, lifts. If you combine Aspen/Snowmass, you end up with an acreage that is not really representative of a single resort's acreage, if that makes any sense. It also opens a can of worms regarding which mountains to combine when ownership is the same for nearby resorts (like Mammoth and June Mountain for example, which have the same ownership/passes/etc., but are not contiguous).
