If you're into skiing or snowboarding, you know the West is where it's at to find North America's longest runs, busiest ski towns and dizzying vertical heights. But getting to Jackson Hole, WY or Whistler, BC isn't always practical or affordable for winter athletes living east of the Rockies.

We've compiled, in no particular order, our favorite ski resorts in the Midwest, North Atlantic, mid-Atlantic, East Coast and Eastern Canada. From Minnesota to outside Montreal, and all the way down to West Virginia, these mountains offer quality vertical and varied runs -- not to mention great vacation amenities -- to satisfy every skier and boarder.

Stay warm!
