general trend this year it seems, all these pompous out "westies" comments. East Coast, namely New England has a good year while out west struggles until late season (its dumping now out there). Its all snow people. If I would have known there's such a divide where the cool people get to ride Id quit the sport all together. Were not worthy lol. Ive been out west numerous times, and this year the snow in VT was as good if not better at times. Grow up people.
