I’M A CREATURE of habit when it comes to the holidays. Fine, you want the truth? I’m a sap. Find me another guy who drives a truck, welds stuff, and yet can capably debate the finer points of Kelly Clarkson versus Mariah Carey for best holiday pop singer. Come early November, my Sonos and Spotify clog up with holiday tunes. My Instagram is given over to real-time reviews of all the new Hallmark and Lifetime holiday movies (#SapAwards).

The Ultimate Sunset Slope WE MADE UP A MOUNTAIN Forget custom skis: This season, we customized an entire slope with all our favorites—both new and classic—from the best snow towns across the West. And while we’re at it, we’ll take Mt. Baker’s snowfall (840 inches last year), Steamboat’s local scene (just shy of 100 Olympic athletes to rub elbows with on the lifts), and Mammoth’s mammoth season (November ‘til July). A team can dream, right? 1. HIGH WEST DISTILLERY, Park City, UT: The world’s only ski-in/ski-out whiskey distillery (and the state’s first legal distillery since the 1870s). 2. NORTH FACE, Alyeska, AK: The longest continuous double-black-diamond ski run in North America. Yew! 3.
