Also look at 1:25 the neon skiers in the background loading the lifts by side-stepping up that hill - priceless!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I just did.

edit: at 3:48 of this youtube clip from the Forum movie - That there is a clip of this original. Thanks to nitroboarder for reminding me what movie it was in.
This is soooo awesome to see........because in 1985 I along with a group of friends not only were not aloud to get on the lifts at Seymour with our snowboards but the ski patrol also stopped us from hiking up the runs and basically escorted us off the mountain.
I went to a high school 5 mins from Seymour and in grade 10 woodwork we built our own press and laminated 1/8" birch into home made snowboards....and even mounted a centre fin!!! Maybe Seymour just didn't like our product????!!!??

In a sense Seymour hasn't changed their attitude.....last year they wouldn't let my spon up the lift with a snowskate yet this is totally acceptable at Whistler.....
