Given that Colorado is a state known for its winter snow sports, the fact that four resorts in the state found a home on Conde Nast's Readers' Choice Awards list of best ski resorts in the country comes as no surprise.

Based on the results of a giant survey that polled more than 800,000 people, the top-rated resort in Colorado was Aspen Highlands, ranking third overall. Beaver Creek was close behind, ranking fourth, followed by Vail in sixth and Crested Butte in seventh.

Several other Colorado spots made the full list of top 40 ski resorts, including Telluride (14th), Keystone (15th), Snowmass (16th), Steamboat (18th), Aspen Mountain (22nd), Copper Mountain (23rd), Breckenridge (26th) and Winter Park (39th).

The two resorts that beat out every Colorado destination were Deer Valley (first, in Park City, Utah) and Sundance Mountain Resort (second, in Provo, Utah).
