There is a gay and lesbian snowboard organization called outboard. They may be less clueless about this topic.
go to:

Im sure there are but likely in the closet. I imagine since the pro community is small it might be tough to come out...similar to pro football, baseball and basketball. Though at the same time i would think snowboarders would be a more open community since most are such free spirits. Who knows...

true....sexual orientation shouldn't matter at all....but maybe one day some big name will come out. for pro sports its harder for athletes since they are in the locker room with the same teammates and could cause some to feel uncomfortable.

According to my friend that was pro through the 90's and early 00's a lot of guys that do the FIS events were loving the pole and getting fisted.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!
