    Sounds like they had a better marketing department back then.

    I have to say little Burke Mountain Vermont has some of the best skiers anywhere. The locals rip and Burke Mountain Academy is pretty much exclusive to elite skiers. Burke skiers know how to turn, it's in their blood and they take that to Squaw or wherever. Worst skiers are pretty much anywhere in Tahoe on a weekend with the bay area folks, although there are definitely some rippers in the mix.

    I haven't skied nearly enough places to offer an expert opinion on the subject but it would be shocking to me if Socal areas would not be at the top of the list. The only one I've skied personally is Mammoth and people were having great difficulty loading detachable chairs. I have to assume that areas further south would be worse. Mt Lemmon outside of Tucson was pretty bad too, although in all fairness it's not easy skiing on grass.

    A couple of winters back when the San Gabriels got deep snow I skied Mt Baldy on a weekend and those few who were skiing were all amazing. A woman from Seal Beach who ripped on skis showed me a few of the better shots. Now the tubing park and the snow driving skills of the Angelenos were so bad it was fun to watch.

    ^^ the real SoKal skiers ski Baldy, the gapers go to Snow Summit or Mt. High.

    Can confirm
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.

    Yeah, been lurking here for years, but had to sign up just to send a shot out to Burke. Iím from California originally and spent two seasons in Vermont. I was blown away how good the skiers were at Burke. Even McConkey spent time there.

    The only reason you saw only a few folks skiing and they were rippers is that everyone else wound up in a ditch on the way to the hill.

    I can confirm this. Iíd also say it has the highest per capita of shitty skiers on touring setups that never see a pair of skins or leave the resort.
