    Yes. Have been to Utah (Alta/Snowbird), Whistler, and Mt Hood Meadows
    Really want to get back but it is tough now with a small family----I don't see the value in hauling my son out there and spending all the $ until we can ski everything together as a family. Realistically probably not for another 8-10 yrs
    A guys only trip is on my wish list but hasn't happened yet.

    Whoops! Oh well...perhaps my reasons/challenges for not having been out West recently (last trip was 2009) applies to some who have never been.

    I've only skied outside the NE on one vacation to Banff area.

    tbh I wouldn't be upset if I never skied outside the Northeast again. I have a long way to go before I know all the backcountry around here, and there's plenty of areas (usually off the map) that test my limits. Tight trees are my thing, and scratchy surfaces in the woods just makes it more of an adventure.

    I have no plans to go west to ski any time soon but I have plenty of plans to further explore more areas in the NE.

    edit: Actually I want to go to some places in Quebec... that doesn't really count

    Oh Oh...The double negative, however the poll question is worded differently than the subject. I am confused I want to answer "I don't know"

    hahaha, sorry for the confusion. I was just curious to hear from people who have never made it out of the Northeast.

    I haven't skied outside of the NOrtheast now in almost a decade. It is long, long overdue.

    It has been a long time for me as well. Not like I frequent other ski areas outside of Northeast. For us it is an issue of affordability when we had four kids, my wife and I and a dog to kennel. Down to one kid at home so he is the lucky one going to Banff with us.

    Went to Tahoe about 20 years ago (pre-kids). Didn't have conditions any different than NE then haha. So really not much different (but Heavenly was awesome).

    No plans for a long time. Having a ski house (and lake house) and passes for family takes up about our entire ski budget. And our kids are not dying to go - our family vacations will not be at a western ski area, no matter how much I wish it. I love skiing, in the NE...so I'm not moaning about the horror of my situation. I feel very fortunate I get about 60 days/year with all I've got going on in my life - it's a miracle!
