You're not really going to bother throwing down with Josh are you?
I mean, he's got the "Ski Capital of the East"! It's got the word 'Capital' in it. Yours?
Did he mention it was raining there last week? Had to cancel a big Ncaa race due to fog, rain, ice pellets. See, you've just got fog. He's got rain and ice pellets. Plus better snow making. They really know how to cover the boiler plate. It's called base building. You have to pray to build your base.
You've got real snow? - pfft This is reliable. Comes out wet and sticks to ice. Can't say that about your "natural" stuff! Blows right off the ice. Mother Nature? - pfft Stowe's got guns and they use 'em. Leave Mother at home, this is serious work.
Really, get a grip with this stuff. Stowe's got a "green" luxury hotel. With a Spa. Yours?
What's Steamboat got?? Champagne Powder? - pfft. They actually make Beer in Waterbury, VT.
Heady Topper - people line up for that stuff. No fake Champagne here. How bogus trying to dupe people!
Steamboat's got Hot Springs? -pfft. Stowe's got.....Piecasso!! Yeah. Pizza so good Picasso would've made it if he ever ate Pizza. (he didn't)
Steamboat's got Aspen trees?? Pfft - Those trees are for wussies. Spaced apart, tall, clean trunks. You can ski around them easily. You must blow if you have to ski those. Stowe? - They built all those unmarked woods trails with loppers and axes! Had to camp out so long goatees were trimmed. They're real tree skiers. Can't see anything, no clean trunks. Get real! This is tough tree skiing. No fake champagne swilling skiers here.
