The Sierra Cement term comes from the overall heavier and wetter snow of the Sierras. Funny that you're picking on Colorado when it's California that picks on Colorado the most by simply saying that the slightly heavier snow totals in the Sierras make the skiing better than Colorado, this is just as stupid as the Sierra Cement "myth". Look Sierra snow is heavier and wetter, that's a fact but this doesn't mean that the snow is bad. Why is it okay for you to say Colorado is wrong and you are not? It's all just opinions.
I know many Californians and Tahoe skiers who say Colorado skiing sucks and gets no snow, and most of them have never skied in Colorado anyways. So why is this okay? Colorado snow is powder, and the Sierras are mostly heavier packed powder, neither is better, just preferred by personal opinion. But why is Colorado wrong, and you're right?
Also Colorado did not start the Sierra Cement "myth" it has been around for ages. Stop blaming Colorado simply because you disagree with people's opinions here!
Also there's more to Colorado than just summit county, Wolf Creek ski area gets close to 500 inches of snow a year in Southwestern Colorado. Loveland gets 400 + inches, and Silverton gets 450 inches. Utah does not average 500 inches a year, just Alta and Solitude do. Only Big sky MT, and Jackson Hole WY average 500 inches in those two states as well. Why is it okay to say MT, UT, and WY average 500 inches just because the most popular resorts in those states do, and not the whole states in General? This is just like saying Colorado averages 300 inches just because Summit county does, and the other resorts that do average around 500 inches in Colorado don't matter? You realize that Summit County isn't the only ski area in Colorado right? It seems that you are just mad because Colorado has a defense to the California comments about Colorado being worse because of less snow. It's all subjective!
Actually California only has the highest mountain in the US, not the two highest. In fact Colorado has the 2nd 3rd and 4th highest mountains in the USA. Overall Colorado is much higher than California.
SUCK ON THAT CALIFORNIA!!!!!!
Seriously? Everyone knows that there is powdery snow in places in California. The point is that only 10 inches of powder on 80 inches of ice isn't that great!
Get over yourselves California!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can dish it out but you can't take it!!!
