Not In Scotland

These are the places I’ve skied on three different continents since 1986. If your favourite resort is missing, it means I haven’t been there …. yet.

Note, I only count outdoor slopes where skiing with natural snow is possible (although snow cannons are allowed for a top up). Dry slopes and snow domes aren’t being listed.
