3 left actually

Deer Valley, Mad River Glenn, and Alta.

Look for Deer Valley to end their ban soon. They've already hinted at it. For the other two. Well MRG might never allow snowboarding, and Alta will probably allow it about 20 years after I am dead...

What is the deal with Toas being to Steep?

I was looking at the video and the Skiers were claiming that it is to steep, to narrow and to small for snowboarding. Nothing can be more narrow than the east coast(try the glades in Jay peak, they are clustered together) and smaller too we not jay be other areas in the east PA specially. What is the deal with the steepness. Call me ignorant but I am sort of a beginner, I do blacks but not double blacks. Are we limited on steep terrain?

Not at all. It's just a stupid skier. They say things like "can't handle the trees, too steep" etc. Well, skiers are the ones that can't handle the trees. Give me a group of expert riders and skier, go out a certain gate I know of, and the boarders will be the first down every single time. I remember when skiing trees meant wide open bowls with a couple of tree on it. Their big sticks couldn't handle what I liked to call tree riding. With shaped skis it's evened the field quite a bit, but boards still rule it.

Steeps, pretty much equal ground there. It's just a see what they want to thing. Taos is not that steep at all.

this situation is truly and honestly bewildering to me.

with all the land of the free speech, how can y'all come to terms with this reality?

you cannot go to a mountain because you ride sideways? what kind of backward, third world, ignorance is that?

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

who can manufacture stickers?

coz i propose one that says:

Taos NM, shove your token of inclusion up your arse. Too little, too late.
We don't need you. We were fine without you and we'll be here after you're gone.

I saw a guy last season with a sticker that said "Fuck Taos"

Now I get what he meant.


The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...
