I Need My European Skier/Snowboarder Friends & Fans -- "Ski Differences between Europe and North America" -- VIDEO

I'm going to start this one by saying that I have never skied in Europe. I Ski The East. That is, I have skied in the eastern United States, mostly in New England. With that said, the video I am bringing to you all today doesn't sit right with me and I'm not sure why. Have a look and then I will continue.

Now, I want you to understand that I get that this video is the opinions of the young woman who made it, based on the experiences she had. I understand that. However, it feels as if the presenter has very limited experience. Does that matter? I don't know.

I think, for me, it comes down to the example she gives concerning her speaking with a person from Colorado saying that it was cheaper for him and his family to go all the way to Austria than it was to ski in Colorado. Have I looked into it? No, but the airfare alone would make this inaccurate. Now, is it cheaper for day tickets and instruction depending on the destination? That's might be right, but once travel is included, then it's likely not that accurate. 

I don't know, it could just be me. Maybe there is some underlying reason that I am not conscious of that has me feeling off about this video. I mean, it is just someone's opinion after all. But, I also know what I know, I have my experiences, which are largely different. I know there are differences between skiing and riding in different areas. Just in the U.S. alone the skiers, riders, and landscapes between New England, the PNW, the Rockies, and so on are different. But, there is just something about the generalizing of North American skiing and riding in this video that doesn't sit right with me.

Then again, as I have said before, it's likely that I don't know what I'm talking about, which is why I bring it to you, that masses.
