Personally, I would rather a mountain be covered by a bunch of snowboarders than a bunch of skiers, so I would probably be disinclined to agree that fewer snowboarders is a good thing. I never have a problem with other snowboarders, but skiers however, don't even get me started (I'm generalizing here of course, based on personal experiences).

I say our mission is not to weed out the newcomers (of which I sorta am having started only a couple years ago) and instead should be to convert non-riders into riders and skiers into riders to overrun them on the mountain.
