Hey, people in Utah who say they only look at Playboy for the articles? Here's an article you'll want to look at.

Playboy has named the No. 1 ski destination for the 2011-2012 winter, and it's Utah's Little Cottonwood Canyon.

"No matter where you live in North America you can fly to Salt Lake City drive a rental car half an hour and be on the slopes at Alta or Snowbird by afternoon," the article begins.

Playboy then mentions the premium powder, the terrain and Powderbird, the heli-skiing service offered at the base of Snowbird.
