You say that like there's a mountain in the northeast with some significant elevation

Tahoe got a dusting this week, but nothing significant yet...

Climb up on top of a barn and you'll have almost as much elevation as most of the mountains in the northeast

Rub it in my face why dont you... some of us arent lucky enough to live in the Rockies... Beleive me if I could i would be there too but i dont so this is the best i've got. Killingtons Elevation is 4,241 and its vertical drop is 3,050. Its on 1,209 acres w/200 trails and 90miles of skiable terrain. This may be small to your standards but to me who has never been out west this place i gigantic compared to my local Ski Area that only has a 900ft vertical drop.

Just as a quick comparison Vail's elevation is 11,570ft but its vertical is only 3,450ft... still wish i was there instead of here though

Yeah aside from Killy, Stowe is like the only other big mountain in the North East, unless you run up to Maine and hit sugar loaf or Sunday river. It might not be very high, but I bet all you Rocky Mtn skiiers and riders would crap your ski pants when trying to ride the ICE in -30 degree temps.

Thankfully, I wont have to deal with that anymore, and will be riding out west from now on!!!

Thats how it goes on the ICE coast... ridin the slush during the day and ice at night. I seriously hate that though when you bombing down a run and go to lean into a deep carve and you hit ice and there goes your edge and your ***. This better be a good season, its one of the main reasons i just bought an XJ.

The ice usually only comes at night anyway... A Lot of bigger places dont even have night skiing and i for one would rather be out during the day anyhow. Truthfully though if you take care of your equipment and your edges are sharp enough ice in many cases really isnt that big of a deal. i've learned to live with it

What most people forget to realize is that when you learn to snowboard/ski in horrible places like the Poconos, then you can pretty much survive anywhere else.

Other people: "Oh no! A patch of ice! Down I go."
Us: "Oh there's ice ahead. No sweat, watch me haul *** over it."



Anyone know it there will be any of those Jeep Appreciation Days in the NE this year?

the most 'snow' I've seen in my life was 4" at once. And that's Georgia snow, so it doesn't even really count.

Maybe I should buy that house I found in Utah.
