The Ski Divas are a passionate group. When it comes to skiing, we don’t hold back. Anyone who goes to our forum knows they can find lively discussions about ski gear, apparel, resorts, and any number of things related to skiing. And while there are as many opinions as there are Divas (we’re more than 4,000 strong), we can usually find a lot of common ground.
That’s where our Mountain Top Picks come in. Each year, we vote on the best of the best from the past season. And though there’s no awards ceremony, no fancy statuette, not even a cheesy certificate, the winners get the honor of being named a Diva favorite (they can even use this neat little logo, if they like). And really, isn’t that enough?
So now, for your reading pleasure, here are TheSkidiva.com’s selections for this year’s Mountain Top Picks.
