I'm confused. What does skiing East Coast ice have to do with including inbounds or OB?
They are two separate statements.
1) I meant that someone that can ski (really ski) anything on ice in the East, can ski pretty much (or adapt quickly) the toughest terrain in the West.
2) The second statement was related to "if we start including backcountry its safe to say the east coast loses" comment. I was just mentioning that was also some crazy stuff in the East. Okay, not as much, but it's out there.
That's all now back to the regular programming. :
PS. I never said there wasn't ice in the West.
