i could care less whether the kiddies like skiing vs snowboarding.
As long as there are enough people to keep the mountains open so I can continue to snowboard.
i just turned 38 and have been snowboarding since 17. Even if every snowboard company went out of business, i have collected enough gear over the decades that I can snowboard until i die.
I have a 6month old son, and i don't care if he wants to be a skier in the future. I assume he will want to be like dad, unless snowboarding becomes completely gay in the future (sort of like what happened to in-line skating).
