You've got to be kidding me. Please explain to me how the 4-5 a day rider with 10 year old gear supports the snowboard industry? I'm talking snowboard companies, not resorts.

The issue here is snowboarding participation waning, while for skiing its up. And if you think core=poor, you're out of your mind. Poor means no snowboarding, which is what I'm seeing living in a factory town who's jobs are now heading down south and overseas.
