Hmmmm. Not quite sure what you are saying there, but as an Alex J. sheeple - I'm sure you will at least understand the truth and harsh reality of this:
MA, CT, VT, NH, MI, northern NY ... yankees. I've never met folks who's egos are so dependent on thinking this is somehow a RUGGED place to live. Its not, temperatures, elevation, steepness, snowfall, etc ... this land is candyass compared to the west, and to most of the worlds high spots. But why are easterners SO needing to feel like its TOUGH to live here? Things west of the Mississippi are STILL more rough then they are here in fact.
Eastern tenderfoots.
That rugged independent Vermont Mountain man image is comical; guys like Mike Mulligan now exemplify the modern day Vermonter.

So I'm a pro ya.Spend your life in the gutter and what would you do. Keep your head on the curb or get flushed down the drain. The future is down hill and I can't wait?

"The future is downhill and I can't wait"
-Yeah Skiing season is just about here! I'm an alpine skier myself, as most Real Vermonters are.

My old mountain out west, where I worked for 14 years, opened a month ago, they now have already gotten 105" of snow so far this season. And that's normal. Really. I've been out here long enough that now it sounds wild to me!

But unlike that CO place, Jay Peak has an indoor Water Park.
I prefer packed powder over the deep fluffy stuff they get out there, that way I can go like a bat out-of-hell down Okemo's 'World Cup'. A buddy of mine has a buddy who works at Stratton and during Employee Appreciation weeks we get to ski for $25

I spent a year training instructors at Jay Peak, and have traveled all over the world competing. And the defensive cry "but its more CHALLENGING to ski here" and etc, is such a cliche, and not true. There is powder in the trees and bowls, packed groomed snow in the bumps, race courses get a water spray if needed to make them ice so that ruts don't build up to fast.

And its WAY WAY steeper out there, and much more vertical, and much more varied terrain. And, at 10,000ft there is 1/3 the oxygen that there is here, and some resorts have slopes that *start* at 9,000+ Until you are acclimated completely (couple of weeks) you suck air up there.

Wolf Creek averages 500" of snow a year, avalanches close the pass down several times a year.

Just on the other side of Wolf Creek is Alamosa, the coldest city in the lower 48 states. Where it has hit -50f

But gosh, its far more *rugged* and fun to ski out here!:-)

"Actually"? Who asked?

Jackson is a great mountain though, my sponsors put me up there for two weeks once, and we spent some time at Grand Targhee while we were there. And some snowcat and heli-skiing during the visit, the back country behind Jackson is stunning terrain.

so high up in elevation that I can't breathe, and having to travel far and pay a lot to ski- eh forget that sh't
I'm happy enough with my relatively 'molehill' sized ski hills of Vermont thanx

That's fine, skiing anywhere is much more fun than not skiing at all. Its when the curmudgeonly New Englander attitude of "whelp, it ain't as tough out there as it is here" starts getting tossed around that it gets old. And its a defensive thing clearly. Trying to cover up that whole Eastern Tenderfoot thing. ;-)

Fact is, there is no other place on the planet but New England with a ski industry this big, yet with such small, shallow, mountains and so little snow. The western US, Canada, all over western and eastern europe, South America, etc. Period.

Rugged? Try Bayonne, New Jersey..or how about Belize City?
The West more rugged? Depends on what part. Sure Santa Fe IS getting more and more violent but then there's the LaLa land of Marin County where life is Easy as Pie.

"Rugged" has nothing to do with s*it cities. The west is WAY less populated, and has FAR more diverse, rugged, and big terrain. You can easily live 50 miles from a town and a few hundred from an interstate. I also have lived in an area where its normal to see -30 and lower temperatures, where 800"+ of snow is not freakish, and etc. There is a reason the term "eastern tenderfoots" exists out west.
