scale - ski edition

A ski-related version of my other post "scale," comparing relative distances of places in Cleveland and Seattle.

17 trails
85 skiable acres
20,000/hour lift capacity

2,280' vertical
52? trails
1.17 mile longest run (International)
1,981 skiable acres
34,490/hour lift capacity

Two to three hour drive:
