Do you believe in the saying “The Bigger, The Better?” Well, if you do, here is a list of the top 11 biggest resorts in North America you should visit.

This list will surely change as ski resorts begin to merge and develop. Many resorts are building new lifts and gondolas to increase the number of skiable acres people have access to. Deer Valley, for example, announced on Thursday, 24th August 2023, a huge expansion that will take its skiable acres to 5,726, putting it sixth on this list

It will be exciting to see how this list changes in the next decade.

11 – RED Mountain, BC

*If cat skiing wasn’t included in the skiable acreage total, Powder Mountain would sit at 7,900 Skiable Acres, which would put Powder Mountain just below Whistler Blackcomb on the list.
