I'll ride the same chair if you have a board or skis on your feet. But, if you don't want me to I'll ski Alta. Wait DV has great food though. Isn't all about the food?

I can tell you with assurance, that while it may ebb and flow (just like skiing has) snowboarding is here to stay (um who was in the Olympics first?). looks like for now, you pompous ski elitists will have to ride the same lifts we are. Don't like it? go to deer valley. I could care less.

Not that i'm against skiing, heck, my brother and some of my best friends ski, but don't call snowboarding a fad.
