I am afraid of making this too easy, so let's just say that it is a state known for its skiing. It is not Colorado, although Colorado is known for its skiing. :) If no one guesses correctly by my lunch, I will throw you a hint. It is in the West. That is all you get!
Edit 1:13pm Mtn. Time: All right, there has been one correct answer so far! I chose the skiing fabric and the ski boot background due to the fact that this state hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. :)
