This angers me to no end about podunk eastern hills. Trail ratings should be roughly universal but the little mountains out here want to impress everyone with their "expert" terrain. Most people end up fine, but there is always the dumb kid who says, "Well I can ski double-black diamonds at Pat's Peak so I can ski off the KT-22." There are obviously some places with true advanced/expert terrain in the East, but too many places equate trail rating with marketing.
