We have 20'+ out here its just the landings are usually flatter and have less snow. you can't really compare the two skis, but I think east coasters would fare better out west than west coasters would fare out east. westerners would see a 60' icy table and be like 'hell no', we would be like oh well.
I was kidding, both have sick skiers in diff disciplines. but i do think that if i can hold on edge down an icy steep run that it wouldn't take that long for me to adjust to keepin an edge on a powdery run.
