No, probably not. Its all just middle aged to old ass holes who began skiing before snowboarding started and who are just cemented in their ridiculous ways. In the video they talk about hating boarders because they are all disrespectful and rude yet they fail to seein the mirror realize that they are being just as disrespectful and rude by being so snobbish and elitist about it.
I think it's just that it's something different and scary to the so-called elitists. All the comments made about snowboarders being disrespectful and rude; substitute the word "snowboarders" with "teenagers" and it sounds exactly the same. It's fear of change and paranoia that they're getting old, someone's out to get them and ruin their day.
