WOW, that's hilarious! Kicking Horse and RCR would have something to say about that...

"At Kicking Horse, we’re proud to garner rave reviews for our incredible verticals, deep ‘champagne’ powder and a truly spectacular and unique terrain mix. With ridiculously long downhill runs, and the option to heli-ski, Kicking Horse is a place where the stories are almost too tall to believe."

Big white also claims to have champagne powder. Considering there's a wiki entry for champagne powder, I'm amazed it's a trademark-able phrase!

Man... When I ski at Fernie on that Champagne Powder (tm) I'm loving it! (tm) And when I'm debating about hitting that jump, my girlfriend says "oh for f^&* sakes Just Do It (tm)". Then when I wipe out and go sit in a sauna to feel better I'm like "man that Does a Body Good (tm)".

Huh. Guess I'll go put on my Nikes and head down to Steamboat to grab some Milk at McDonalds. Or not.

This is blowing up in Steamboat's face. It's actually pretty funny. The other thing is as pointed out by a person on their Facebook page who evidently understands what the document says in legalese
Quote:
Actually guys...neither class 41 or 43, as referred to in their CaD letter refers to you. You are neither an entertainment or recreation facility NOR a resort lodging service. Keep cham-paining...
Steamboat will not be getting business from or referred to by me.
