Granite Peak Bans Snowboarders

My "home hill" shows up in Transworld mag and it's for this BS! Pretty Sad. Central Wisconsin.

Wow, really? I guess then three terrain parks should be snowboarders only...

Pretty lame.

Vote with your dollars folks. If you haven't bought a pass, don't get one there. Go somewhere else. If you already owned a season pass, do everything in you power to not spend a dime at their cafeteria's shops whatever else they own and make money off of. Let them know it too.

Best thing to do is to let them know. I agree. I hope it hits their profits hard just to show them how riders feel about this.

Im from Michigan and maybe its different in other states in the mid west but it seems like its about 50/50 skiers to snowboarders wherever ive been around there. I dont know how a place can afford to take that kind of hit? Anyone wanna try and explain the economics behind this? I know Taos here in NM opened to snowboarders in 08 and im sure their income soared....bad call wisconsin.

The only thing that Wisconsin has is some snow, cheese, and the fact that That 70's Show is based there. Not much else...

Not like people don't have other resorts to go to, whom would be more than happy to receive more snowboarders.

so if snowboarders are banned from 3 of 75 runs, then i would assume that skiers will be banned from 72 of 75 runs.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
