It would be great to include a review (table) of the skiing area for each resort in the WTSS book and site. This would include the % or kms of tree lined pisted runs, open terain pisted runs and off piste and or ski routes. At the present time the book offers a good description in general terms however, this could be improved.

Example

Resort - Snowdome
Tree line runs (piste) 24kms
Open terain (piste) 64kms
Ski Routes (pisted or not pisted) 36kms
Off piste (tree/sheltered) approx 28kms
Off piste (open terain) 45 kms.

This is great for us. Anyway, it would be better if there’s a list for all of us to see.

One more suggestion:  there should be at least two ratings for snow.  Currently, snow reliability is the stated standard and that doesn’t address snow quality.  There are a number of resorts that have equally reliable snow (i.e. Keystone and Aspen) but the quality of the snow surface is invariably much better at one resort as opposed to the other, for a variety of reasons - - skier volume, sun exposure, moisture content, etc.  For example, Keystone is close to Denver and gets heavy skier traffic on its main runs, even during the week.  Aspen is a 5 hour drive and not conducive to weekend skiers, much less day trippers.  Consequently, the snow surface is always much better.  And there is much more terrain to spread out the skiers, so fresh powder or newly groomed corduroy is more likely to be found.
