Since everyone liked Part 1 so much, and FZ pointed out that I forgot a few places, here goes with some more…
New Mexico: Talk about feast or famine, Taos will get 400″ or 0″, and never anything in between. It’s like going to Vegas and playing all the games with the worst odds.
Idaho: And they say it never snows in Colorado and everything is flat…
South America: Nothing ever works. Ever. And it’s windy and when it’s dumping, all the lifts are closed and you can’t see a thing because there are no trees.
Europe: Hey, I can generalize a whole continent, right? 😉 For starters, you better have some kroners or euros or you’ll go broke in a hurry. Storm skiing is nonexistent, all the good stuff is in the alpine. Everyone wears neon and skis on skinny skis. As the one area in the world that truly loves to ski, it’s crowded.
Antarctica: One of the driest places on the planet, and windy to boot. Polished ice, anyone?
New Zealand: Skiing is serious business. New Zealand has clubs. Enough said.
