The snow may be pure at Utah's ski resorts, but the intentions of some of the people there might not be.

A survey of members of the rich-guy/hot-gal matchmaking website SeekingArrangement.com found the "Top 10 Sugar Daddy Ski Resorts in North America" — and two Utah locations made the list.

The survey listed Deer Valley and Park City as No. 4, while Snowbird/Alta ranked tenth.

Some 72 percent of the members of the site — which matches wealthy men with attractive women for "mutually beneficial relationships" — call themselves skiers. And, according to site founder/CEO Brandon Wade, "a true skier won't be satisfied with a posh ski resort if the skiing is sub-par."

Here's the full list:

1. Whistler, British Columbia

2. Jackson Hole, Wyoming

3. Vail, Colorado

4. Deer Valley/Park City, Utah

5. Telluride, Colorado

6. Sun Valley, Idaho

7. Banff, Alberta

8. Mammoth Lakes, California

9. Aspen, Colorado

10. Snowbird/Alta, Utah
