    Here, while we often poke fun of ourself for having an abundance of ice, we do have a culture. Go to Sugarbush, Smuggs, Magic or even Killington (early and late season) and you'll see plenty of cars with bumper stickers that say "ski the east". Here people are excited to ski even if their's only 5 inches of snow on the ground.

    Meanwhile the times I go out west, most mountains feel corporate. Now obviously Vail and Breck really had this vibe, but even at A-Basin or Loveland I didn't really get the sense that there is a culture like the east coast. It seems like most people don't even come to the resort unless theres greater than 6 inches of snow.

    Anyone who's lived in both places want to talk about the culture? Do you guys have a "ski the west" vibe?
    Come to A Basin between mid April and mid June and you will see a ski culture that is amazing with parties, tailgating and fun breaking out all over in the parking lots, the deck, the court yard with live bands, inside and the attitude is great especially on May powder days. The culture is different every where. Not an easy vs west thing. We love the Colorado vibe.

    The west has no culture! Ski other whatever else.

    They don’t NEED “culture”. They just do it.
