1985 CBC Anti-snowboarding News clip - Mt Seymour, BC
 
If you haven't seen this video in its entirety, its worth a watch for a good laugh. It's especially funny if you ride Seymour in this era, where they are now considered the more board-friendly mountain on the north shore.

**Link updated 01/31/2013 - The clip used to specify 1985 as the date, now it just says "1990's" so who really knows. But it sure looks like 1985.**

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.

Yeah I recognized parts of it, didn't remember it was from THAT, thanks I'll have to dig up my copy and watch.

And yeah in some ways, they actually had a legit case against snowboarders when the gear was so primitive, it definitely looks way less in control than today's standards.

Make sure you've got latest embedded media plugins for your browser? Give some details of what its doing - is the page loading but just not video? What browser you using? works for me in firefox 3.0

Epic video. :thumbsup:

Pure win.

I bet that guy in the last part of the clip is a pretty angry person nowadays. There are only, what, 2 or 3 resorts that still ban snowboarders. I'm guessing he has a season pass at one.

I bet all the skiers back then thought snowboarding would disappear soon if they defended their hills...
