this is a very misleading statement that makes a false comparison.
pretty sure the only reason anybody rides the east coast is because they live there or get paid for a contest. never been, never plan on going, ill admit that up front. hey even crap snow is better that no snow right? hell i've ridden some pretty piss poor overglorified corn fields in the midwest just sayin...
Agree'ed crap snow is better than ice or no snow.
Please explain how its misleading if you have yet to go there.....If you look at snowfall yearly avg for jay its 375" while Big Sky is 400" and whistler is 401". Mean while snow to rain ratio at jay is 30:1 and due to the way that the weather treks across northern vermont and across the vermont/canadian boarder once it hits Jay peak it causes major up-sloping causing the storms to cycle over the peak itself.
the east might be crunchy as a mother fucker but we have our gems and jay is one of them.
