That's because we actually have powder out west!

So what is West of West? Calling Utah or Colorado "West" is a very East centric concept. Similar to using the term Washington State and not using Washington DC.
In the continental US you can ride the East, Midwest, Rockies or West (CA,WA,OR,ID,NV).

I completely agree, I've always thought it logical that West is comprised of the states you have listed with Arizona included. Then Midwest would be the states... screw it here is a graphic aid I made.

The states on the far left are west, next group is midwest, followed by mideast and finally east. This is according to my logic of course.

It's ust that everytime I have expressed this, society has berrated me and said no there is east, midwest, and west. So I just started going along with that idiocracy.

Take yourself to higher places.

last season i rode mostly at heavenly (because i lived/worked there).

the people i ride with never judge me, it's more about the vibes i get from some of the people i interact with on main runs, lifts, and in lodges. i'm very much aware that when we're off in the trees, or it's a good powder day, people generally cease to give a shit about such trivial things (myself included).

... i don't know, i guess i'm just bitching and expressing self conscious-paranoia and buried feelings of inferiority. when i initially posted this thread i thought i was actually contributing some kind of insight.

carry on, folks.
