What ski country would you annex?

Trump is thinking about trying to buy Greenland, which is.... awesome. I say we buy the shit out of it and see if we can grab Iceland, too.

But it got me thinking. If the US could annex one ski country as a colony, what should it be? Obvious answer is Canada, but Japan, New Zealand, or Switzerland would be fun, too.

What about Chile or Argentina so's we can ski year 'round without so much jet lag?

Oddly enough the US tried to buy Greenland in 1946 or 47..Denmark obviously said no..

In reference to the other thread about the end of skiing - skiing isn't going to end with global warming, it's just going to move north, much like the population will have to.

Imagine 20+ hour daylight skiing in the summer

Quebec would mAke a nice adder for skiing

I figure since Denmark has been paying only half of their NATO commitment they owe us big time and would just give Greenland for defense services rendered

Re: What ski country would you annex?

Oh snap! It’s getting all political up in here! Can everyone play nice and not get triggered now?

Here’s something Trump did or is doing that I’m on board with. As some of you may know the extreme environmentalist movement has put a stranglehold on land managing agencies to actually manage the land for all sorts of things including fire management, trail development and conservation.
