That's right....Just wait till the FTC finally gets around to coming after your "Champagne Powder" lies. Surprised the French haven't gone after Steamboat. Everyone knows that Champagne is a region in France. Even California can't use the name for "Sparkling Wine". What, you're claiming a cloud drifted over the Atlantic, across the country and dropped this powder stuff on Steamboat?? Unbelievable gaul to make those claims.
Can one make anything out of this alleged "Champagne Powder"? Like maybe "Sparkling Wine"? No, just water and you can buy that in a bottle. You don't even have real Maple syrup to drip on it! You're stuck with the Aunt Jemiima from the Conoco station. More fakery.
Why isn't it called "Freebase Powder"? That's more accurate. Or, now that the entire state walks around stoned, you should call it "420 Smoke", "Bong Powder", "Vaporizer Powder", "Cheech and Chong Powder", "Yo Dude! Powder", "Rocky Mountain High Powder"
More problems at the 'Boat. There's that fake Cowboy Billy Kidd skiing around with a Cowboy hat on. What does that have to do with anything? He's not a Cowboy and never was. A skiing cowboy? Where are the cattle? What skis are they using? Even Crested Butte had real cows rescued on the mountain. Billy wasn't involved.
Headlines like these are used to separate the Real Skiers from the Fake Skiers. Only Real Skiers show up when it's raining. They know how to go to the hardware store and buy Real waterproof clothes. Not that expensive crap that needs to be washed with special soap and only works with light, aka Fake Rain.
Stowe has Real Rain and Real Skiers on the slopes.
Let's sum it up:
Steamboat: 100% Fake Champagne + 100% Fake Cowboy = 100% Fake
Stowe: 100% Real Fake Snow + 100% Real Rain = 100% Real
Even a six year old can decide that Real is better than Fake.
