Exactly. Les is at it again. I don't see how they can claim or expand enough to have the most veritical with KTon at 3000+ & the Loaf at 2800+. Best I can tell they'd be lucky to get 2000 ft of vertical. Maybe its another one of Les' marketing gimmicks: "Most Vertical in Coos County "
lbo said:with 2,200 skiable acres of alpine terrain, the largest vertical drop, and 100 km of nordic trails, the balsams will be larger and more varied than any other resort in the east.
You are right...he's a marketing genius. The write up says "largest" vertical....I can see it now: Ski the Balsams' 1500 Vertical Feet
Is the mountain that Balsams ski area on really that big?
"Yes" to have the largest vertical in the East (as the write up proclaims), however, "No" to the most vertical in the East....
Kind of like White Heat being the Widest Steepest expert trail, but not being the Steepest, Widest expert trail...;-)
