Just think if all the easterners who "live to work" instead of "live to ski" moved out west. I would love to send all those crowds western resorts then judge the quality of the skiing.
Eastern skiing can be great at times and it can be less than great but it is always better than not skiing. West too. Last season I'd certainly pick skiing in Vermont over skiing in Tahoe at just about any point in the season.
Once again I urge all eastern skiers who live to ski to move at west as soon as possible. Take your friends and extended families too.
