You're not getting it... MRG's terrain is serious
. Is terrain only to be considered serious if it's high alpine? For me serious terrain is about how much challenge there is, and frankly as far as challenge is concerned MRG is right on up there.
MRG offers as close a big mountain experience as you can get on the EC.
That's great for people on the East Coast.
Firstly, it is
great for people out here. Don't think that we are entirely lacking in tough terrain because our terrain is different. You ought to come out here and hit the slides at WF or MRG before you pass judgement on terrain. You don't hear me spouting out that terrain at some mountain I've never been to isn't serious. Furthermore, I'm not backing it up with lame evidence like a trail map, and then covering my ears and shouting "I'm not listening"
when people call you out for your dubious assertion.
Secondly, in regards to this:

Most people on this forum are the people who can handle and enjoy pushing their limits on the mountain. They happen to be the type of people who stay at cheap hotels to get turns. We take off time and lose income to follow are passions. Case in point, look at the number of us who continue to post over the summer. We have a tremendous passion for skiing. We are far more likely to visit your MRA than the vast majority of people who make it out in a season. In short you need our support, because we are the few who will travel and pay to ski your place, especially if it is serious alla:
Most recreational skiers aren't going to feel comfortable on terrain like that, and you're going to need as much support as possible as the business margins in skiing are tight as it is.
I now see you wrote one more post.

Yeah your attitude, hence your next comment:

which also shows your tremendous ignorance.

There is, and we want "rad" terrain, whether it is tight east coast trees or steep powder bowls out west. We just don't want annoying ideology spoon fed to us while we search for it, and we certainly don't want somebody telling us where we live and ski is inferior.
