Not green at all when you consider that we cut down trees on mountains and build machines running up and down them, use diesel powered engines to make snow, drive hundreds of miles every season to get to the hils, and ride snowboards made of expensive plastics and woods.

It's really the whole carbon neutral and carbon credit bullshit that bothers me though. Not just for snowboarding but I hate it when companies use that as a marketing gimmick when theres no evidence that being carbon neutral or buying carbon credits is positive.
