Not gonna argue with that. I think prices are generally higher out here due to a couple factors:
1) Boston/NYC big money is nearby. Willingness and ability to pay is high.
2) Higher cost for maintenance due to reliance/dependence on snow making vs. western mountains that rely more on natural snow.
I would love to live in Colorado or Utah one day just to board....but the professional opportunities out there are extremely limited compared to Boston, New York, SF, etc...
