    Is skiboarding dying? Yes and No

    For the YES: I have definitely seen less true skiboarders on the mountain each year (on general days when I am not going to a planned meet-up with another...

    I don't think there is anything in the works right now. I originally proposed this but work and erratic conditions this season have made it tough for me to lead any organization. I have been at JF...

    Iíve consulted on the construction of these for a few clients (both ski resorts and just mountain lodges). In the ski resort cases these typically follow terrain designed for drainage of snow melt...

    Alta must be doing okay (financially) if they can do this. Most resorts in my area credit snowboarding for saving the mountains in the late 80s/90s. Many of them had snowboarder-only parks back...
