Top Ten Mogul Ski Resort Mountains

Search this site:

We ranked our favorite mogul mountains based on the number of available mogul runs, percentage of advanced terrain and quality of mogul formations.
1) Taos New Mexico (US)
Taos NM Taos sign This mountain will kick your ass and you will leave happy. They are fully dedicated and committed to the advanced skiers and mogul skiing. Snowboarding is usually counterproductive to the formation of moguls and was banned from the mountain entirely until the 2008-2009 ski season. The signature Taos mogul run is "Al's Run" who's view greets all who arrive at the mountain base with a sign telling beginners not to panic. My favorite however is Longhorn which seems endless and leaves you wondering when it's going to end.

Taos was the host of the 2007 Salomon Extreme Freeride Championships.

See our review of Taos Ski Valley NM for more.

2) Mary Jane Colorado (US)
Mary Jane The Mary Jane (part of the Winter Park resort), dedicates itself to moguls. You can find moguls on the entire mountain. This is the break down of the trails:
  • Expert Only: 1% (Double black diamond)
  • Most Difficult: 57% (Black diamond)
  • Advanced: 22% (Blue-Black)
  • Intermediate: 19% (Blue)
  • Beginner: 1% (Green)

3) Telluride Colorado (US)
Telluride CO Great terrain, great town, great time! Gotta love runs with intimidating names like "Plunge", Spiral Stairs", "Dynamo" and "Kant-mak-M". Telluride has two sides with two distinct characteristics, one side is easy and the other is not. Boasts 38% advanced/expert runs and that's why we like it.

4) Sun Valley Idaho (US)
Sun Valley ID One of our favorite resorts for a mountain with advanced terrain coupled with a town of luxury and comforts.

If you like moguls check out Rock Garden, Exhibition or Upper Holiday.

5) Jay Peak Vermont (US)
Jay Peak VT Jay offers great moguls and thinned tree glades. The best moguls the northeast has to offer. Find Kitzbuehl and Powerline to find out what we are talking about.

6) Steamboat Springs Colorado (US)
Steamboat CO You will enjoy Tornado, Rolex, 3 O'Clock and the runs off of Morningside.

See our review of Steamboat Springs CO for more.

7) Copper Mountain (US)
Copper CO Take the Alpine lift over by East Village to Far East, Triple Threat and Too Much. These bump runs will leave you smiling.

See our review of Copper Mountain CO for more information.

8) Alta Utah (US)
Alta UT Thirty five percent of their terrain is dedicated to the advanced skier and the "black diamond". The run "High Rustler" (shown here) is worthy of mention. Great snow and cheap lift tickets will get you to like this mountain even more.

See our review of Alta UT for more information.

9) Killington Vermont (US)
Killington VT Killington gets our number two vote for the best moguls in the Northeast USA.

See our review of Killington VT for more information.

10) Jackson Hole Wyoming (US)
Jackson Hole While it is better known for its "out of bounds" terrain and Corbet's cliffs, it's also a pretty good mogul mountain. Head on over to Thunder quad lift and check it out.
