You gotta love it, to just show up, here in the east.
Don't forget Billy Kidd he was a Vermont boy.
...but you got to love Spider Sabich.(west coast) . the Bode Miller of 1968. (made Bode look mild in comparison)
I suspect unlike forum skiers the best care little about east/west bias but rather find they’ve been particularly fortunate to move wherever best suits their developing interests or professional pursuits. That said it is of no coincidence that many of the elite have honed skills at some point on the older mountains where tree & foliage sits at the very top of these weathered sinking rocks. Ski well in that maze and you can take it anywhere above tree line in the steep and deep…undoubtedly with a great deal of newfound enthusiasm.
I guess you could say that, but if you ask the average person to name a state they want to ski out west, I'm guessing California, Oregon, or Washington is not going to be the top answer. There is great skiing in those states, but the typical vacation skier going west is probably going to end up in Utah, Colorado, or Wyoming.
Is there some point to what you are trying to say?
