If you guys liked that, check these other two gems I just found also from CBC just by searching snowboard.

Snowboarding on the edge of mainstream
Broadcast Date: Dec. 13, 1996

The popularity and perils of snowboarding
Broadcast Date: March 6, 2000

Im only halfway through the first one right now, pretty interesting watch so far.

Also look at 1:25 the neon skiers in the background loading the lifts by side-stepping up that hill - priceless!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I just did.

edit: at 3:48 of this youtube clip from the Forum movie - That there is a clip of this original. Thanks to nitroboarder for reminding me what movie it was in.
I know that this thread is two years old, but does anyone know how I can find the footage from this broadcast? I tried looking in the archives but am having a hard time finding it. I'm looking for the footage for a school project.


Edit: Was able to find it, incase anyone is interested in seeing the video: CBC Digital Archives - Extreme Sports: Faster, Riskier, More Outrageous - Skiers versus snowboarders

thanks for the updated link.

those early boards had no metal edges and no sidecut - none of the boarders in that video could turn, so I can see why the skiers didn't want them there.

The rest of the dialogue was BS. I seriously doubt that most every kid they stopped was cussing at them and/or drunk. I know for sure skiing was NOT becoming "more an more popular". Snowboarding saved the increasingly expensive snow sport industry which was declining to the point where some resorts were near having to close....and some did close.

Skiing wasnt becoming more and more popular, that's why back in the day resorts such as Stevens had $10 Mon/Tues. I was talking to an older guy (60+) at work one day and he said to me that he enjoyed snowboarders, cause if it weren't for them, we would have all of these new lodges, chairs, runs etc. I know more people that have quit sking to board, then the other way around, like the old saying goes "Bored skiers, go Snowboarding".

I was trying to find a news clip from the late 80's early 90's, where the news crew was doing a story on snowboarding, it was the typical b.s., they cut in line, they're out of control, rude and then I thought I heard it all, this dumb bitch in her neon one piece ski suit said "They all look like they carry guns" ?, so from that day on it was an ongoing joke while getting suited up, we'd say goggles check, gloves check, money check and AMMO check
