I see. I of course understand moisture to snow ratio's. Sierra cement in California's Sierra Nevada mountains as well! Lake effect snow tends to be super fluffy. It's an easy formula around here. If...

You can tell with a b.s. statement like that it's a east coast forum. LOL

I couldn't disagree more. Find a steeper slope if you want more speed or carve instead of skidding.

That's interesting. So that's the ONLY reason it's different?

I don't think the snow is necessarily slower. It's just clearly a different composition and not as soft and fluffy feeling as real...

It's clearly not the same thing as real snow. I mean just ride in an area where they've blown snow and haven't groomed it yet. It's clearly not the same thing as natural snow! Not even a comparison....

Natural snow vs man made

These resorts seem to claim that man made is the same thing as natural snow, but it's clearly not!! There's no comparison to the soft feeling of natural snow vs the cruddy thick feeling of...
