I admit im not a big fan of Eastern skiing..yet i go every week when im not out west or Europe. What skiing these sometimes crappy conditions does for us is it allows us to handle any condition no matter where we are. If im out west or Europe and its raining..or socked in by fog, or icy moguls..its no problem. Fair weather skiers and boarders ..maybe not so much. I know people who live here but will only ski out west. They dont do very well when things turn to shit. They want blue skies and powder..or theyre in the bar. Ok. Im out there.
Agreed.Haha! The folks that complain about walking on these ski forums crack me up!
If Reverse Traverse is something you bitch about you clearly know nothing about SB. Are you going to complain about the stairs from the parking lot too?
I hate all the damn Speed Traps trying to take my drinking money away.
Totally rational to try to make things easier so you can get out more often/earlier. Not to mention, it's not particularly challenging to carry two pairs of skis. Got used to it racing as a kid.Its called being nice..to your wife..who is willing to get the 730 chair saturday and sunday..not many wives on that line..
Those people aren't really skiers.
It's one thing to prefer western skiing, which is obvious. It's quite another to never ski anywhere in the east, which 100% means you're just not that into skiing.
OK pics, but like is something in those supposed to make someone want to ski NE? Snow looks lousy in all of them. Typical NE "skiing".
I think this is precisely his point. It would be silly to argue you'd rather ski your favorite eastern mountain over your favorite western one. Skiers that live in the northeast don't have the time/means to ski often enough out west to consider themselves diehard (except for Hawk's buddy George and other presumably very rare exceptions).Sorry, but if I had the choice, I would 100% be skiing out west exclusively.
