    You should add Kamchatka and Lyngen Alps in Norway for spectacular locations.

    I would have liked to have added Greenland but it's not going to happen.

    I’ve checked out a few of yours but agree with some. Chile at the top for me. I’d add Alaska and Mt Ruapehu and Sweden. I’ve also got a strange want to ski the hills around Montreal in Quebec.

    Alaska
    Kamchatka
    Lapland (will tick this one off in December)
    Plus there's a few WC DH tracks I'd like to hit (Hahnenkamm and Lauberhorn). Have done the Sasslong at speed - spent half of it in the air and the rest with double vision!
