As far as the cost of the sport is concerned, who cares if it's snowboarders or skiers? The resorts charge the same amount. Interestingly the article doesn't seem to come right out and say that total numbers are down, although the numbers they do reference would indicate that.

I have heard teenagers say that they are skiing to do something different. So like Microsoft, snowboarding has gone from being the plucky upstart to being the evil empire.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
