JHMR named Forbes' #1 ski resort in North America

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, Forbes released its annual list of the top ten ski resorts in North America and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) ranked number one on the list. The media group uses an algorithm they call PAF (pure awesomeness factor) to rank the ski resorts. According to the article, the algorithm digests 30 categories of data for each ski resort. They analyzed 220 ski resorts in North American with this formula to determine the top 10. JHMR ranked number one with a PAF of 99.00. The article states that, "Jackson Hole, a perennial favorite of the PAF algorithm, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year by adding a lift that will grant easier access to its top ridge on the north end of the resort—and its high backcountry gate into Granite Canyon." It goes on to defend the ranking with, "We judge the terrain at Jackson Hole to be the best in North America. If you disagree, register your complaint in the comments section and we can brawl about it." We have to say that we agree!
