ok, not to start a royal pissing contest - well maybe just a little good natured one...

if one were moving to a region in north america solely for the BC terrain & BC community, what are your top 3 regions from rockies west & why? please take into consideration
a) sheer amount of terrain,
b) variety of terrain,
c) amount of steep & difficult of terrain (difficulty being a good thing)
d) accessibility of all said terrain (within a reasonable drive from population center for a day trip)
e) enthusiastic split community
f) anything else pertinent not listed.

thanks!

Anywhere but the PNW. It rains a lot, the snow is wet and heavy, it's mostly flat, the season is short, the cost of living is high, and the job market is tough.

Oh yeah, the locals are jerks too.

I'm might be joking about some of those but two are the truth, maybe 3. :wink:

a few questions

a) sheer amount of terrain,-This depends on what you consider an "region". PNW is a region but you'll have way different experiences in Bend then you will in Enumclaw and so forth.

b) variety of terrain,-see comments on A.
c) amount of steep & difficult of terrain (difficulty being a good thing)-Do you mean that can be accessed by skinning or do you include mountaineering approaches or helicopters?
d) accessibility of all said terrain (within a reasonable drive from population center for a day trip)-What's a population center and what's reasonable?
e) enthusiastic split community-Washington is an enthusiastic split community, Republicans east of the mountains and Democrats west.
f) anything else pertinent not listed.- Snow-pack stability

Yo, I think the Wasatch kills it in all of those categories except for amount of terrain... :thatrocks: :thatrocks: :thatrocks: Kind of a small area.

The Tetons... Again, small (in area, not height) but, it has some of the most impressive lines in the lower 48


This website needs more of these "what's the best_____?" Threads

but on terrain and snow...

I agree.

AK 1st, then AK 2nd, then daylight, then everything else. Not that there aren't plenty of other places in North America, you guys are so lucky... Tetons, Wasatch, Rockies, Sierras... I'd be happy anywhere




Chugach
Alaska Range
Wrangells
Tordrillos
Haines
Neacolas


Do I need to go on?
