Wow, that's Maple Valley!!! It's right on Rte. 30 on the way to Stratton. It's been closed for several years. I've never skied there but years ago stopped in the lot when it had snow just to take a look. Sheesh, they've got air hockey!
Well, as far as that for an epic place.... we'd have too many arguments about what the proper ski would be. Fat ski users would boycott and call everyone else gapers. There'd be tension and fights at the bar.
The terrain is just not there. We'd get a bad rap.
It's an interesting idea though! Esp. if it was decent for mountain biking, and allowed per law.
Actually, I like the Japan idea!! So far away that no one could monopolize - at least now. Well, there's Samarai and carver_hk is in HongKong.
