Thats how the snowboarding industry changed the ski industry forever. One of my local mtns is Mt BAKER, where back in the day was only open Friday thru Sunday, it would dump all week and come Friday morning we'd have 3 feet plus fresh. Us boarders for several reason would ride nothing but powder, 1st being, steel edges weren't thought of, 2nd it didnt hurt as much falling and 3rd the ski's back then were only about 2" wide, so most skiers stayed out of the powder (except the AirBears) leaving more for us.
