So I have talked t quite a few people over the years with regard to where the best quality snow is and have had a number of different opinions. I am not talking about quantity but rather the actually physical properties of the stuff. I am quite partial to the dry fast NZ powder myself. Thoughts?
I hate the snow! I have seen it a few times in my life when traveling to the mountains (I live in the desert) and have hated it each time. I never want to live anywhere with snow and I never want to touch it again. But I can see how it could be fun if you grow up with it... snowboarding does look a little fun but I like wakeboarding because it's almost the same but without the snow.
The best snow you get is probably up in Canada if you go helicopter skiing.. Alps have some nice gletscher too..
I am told that Japanese powder is the best you can get. Anyone had any experience in the matter?
I've lived in Utah for a few years while I was in school, and the snow over there was pretty nice. I'm not a real big skier or snowboarder so it was all kind of the same to me. Other people I know that are much more serious about their snow seem to really talk highly of it. Particularly, Park City and Sundance areas.
