This is the shit that annoys the hell out of me. Everything these people are saying are all generalizations of parkrats. God damn, it doesnt bother me so much that they have a mountain to themselves, its just that they are so against snowboarding for the stupid reasons..like "i dont like the noise the boards make"...dafuq? your damn skis make the same noise. I hate being stereotyped because of how fucking parkrats act on the mountain.

Ok, rant over.

and i hate to make it sound that way, but its how i feel. Im not trying to say its everyone whos always just in the park, cuz its not, but a good majority of the people in the park cant ride for shit if you put them on any other trail on the mountain that isnt a park.

And i didnt generalize parkrats in my last statement, all i said is that snowboarders are given a stereotype based on how people see the parkrats acting in the park below the main lift. At least thats how it is over by me in NY.

And it will continue to ban snowboarding and snowboarder's are the group that is making it happen.

The Forest Service has already said they don't care. An operator can choose what style of snow recreation can use their lifts. You can hike over to Alta and snowboard down it when they are operating. They just don't let you on the lifts. That is how it is. All ski area operators on Forest Service land can do this.

As far as snowboarder's making this happen. Spending money at Snowbird funds Alta. Plain and simple. Alta has a joint lift ticket arrangement that they rely on to keep the ban going. They were going to allow snowboarding or go out of business 10+ years ago. Of course they hated it and the owners pulled off a last minute deal with Snowbird on the Alta-Bird pass. Though snowboarders aren't buying it, the extra income from 'Bird skiers allows them to continue with the ban. Snowbird supports them and it makes them money, after all they are not losing snowboarder business either. Now if snowboarders quit riding Snowbird in significant numbers and the Bird realized this, that joint lift ticket would die. So would Alta unless they allowed snowboarding. So when you go to Utah, I personally recommend riding anywhere but the Bird. Yes it's got great terrain, so do a lot of other Utah resorts with less crowds. As long as you ride Snowbird, you won't be riding lifts at Alta.

Wow, a bunch of self righteous bigoted elitist ass holes in that video. Funny how nobody could give a valid reason other than the fact that they are a bunch of babies who dont know how to share. Very frustrating that the elitist skiier community has such a blind hatred for snowboarding because the populous is all younger. Funny how everyone that blatantly said no were all white adults over 40. It will be a glorious day should snowboarding be allowed there. I would try my hardest to ride there on that day just to give a big ole middle finger to every one of those stuck up pricks. So it appears that snowboarding has plenty of douche bag kids in their early teens, and skiing has plenty of douche bag adults in their 40s...which one is more understandable?

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

This is just as ignorant as the comments from the people in the video.

Just curious, I can't find it on their trail map, does Alta have a park for skiers? I've heard complaints here that the runs are ruined because now it's rails and jump rather than an open run.

The comment about Obama from the old woman who sounded a bit drunk was pretty funny though.

Being Midwest I never even knew there was "no snowboarding" hills. This was around in the early 80's when SB'ing was in it's infancy but 2012 really.
So I did some searching and found a poacher video kinda funny. Not sure how old it is but still kinda funny



this was even better I thought these are from 08 so I'm sure many of you have seen them.
