I am definitely not calling Colorado the West Coast, don't get me wrong. To a lot of people, West coast just refers to the Western state ski areas. Plus if you put a meet like this on, you got to think of hubs, if it is open to people from all over. The only reason I brought out Utah and Colorado is the good airport access. All of the West Coast states have this too of course. We are as land locked as you can get.
No one is quite a convenient as Salt Lake is. It's stupid easy. My only complaint there is about who is running that state.
I am not going to organize or run this thing. It's a nightmare. Plus, I don't really care for riding chairlifts, but most people don't share that passion. Which limits me to who I'll ride with.
I do wana do my first backcountry trip. So lemme know on that note =D but back to the west COAST lol
