Man some of you ******s out west are ******* sheltered and downright insulting individuals aren't you! Even if you didnt mean it!
We have some pretty awesome terrain here in the east; The Slides at whiteface are sweet, the chin above stowe and all around Mt. Mansfield has nice chutes and cliff drops among many other places SUCH AS, Magic Mtn. VT, Burke Mtn. VT, Sugarbush, tuckermans ravine on Mt. Washington, Jaypeaks excellent pow, glades, and chutes. We have the chic choc back country on the Gaspe peninsula in Canada that gets over 20 feet of snow a season, no trees, wide open pow bowls, chutes, and avy danger (most people dont take advantage of it; earn your turns, but it is swEEt) Best rideing is on the caribou preserve parts(illegal). We may not have the immense terrain as certain places in the west or as much avy danger. But, we do have terrain that will challenge any
skier. With that said, you were out of line byatch!
Oh, since when is 3000' or even 2300' of vert short ? If im not mistaken some places out west dont even have 3000' though I know most do and over that. But some don't.
