Today the Boston Globe has an article about skiing's new dominance on the slopes and the decline of snowboarding's 'coolness'.
The article particulary highlights Dumont, saying "skier Simon Dumont rides his four edges as well as anybody, and his fans know it. Out near the halfpipe were two young ladies ogling Dumont. Partly because he can throw a 1260 degree spin and partly because he is "dead-sexy" and "steezy", which means he has style with ease." Gotta love it. The article was actually very well written and informative to the average reader/skier/snowboarder.
Most interesting quote noted that "snowboarding is now mainstream, which means, virtually by definition, that it's bound to become uncool."
Any thoughts? Should we protect skiing's radness right now from the establishment, or is it inevitable?
As much as I like hearing skiing is cooler than snowboarding, I'd almost rather not hear it because that means every single little kid out there is gonna try and be a skier. In 5 years, it'll be skiers crowding up terrain parks and disrupting people. Honestly, I want to continue blaming that on snowboarders.

i think it is retarded how they asked 12 year old kids, little kids usually have the most misguided information and believe whatever they hear. they should have been asking people who can actually be diehards in the sport, because at 12, most likely u rely on ur mom to get u to and from the mountain and arent very independent, they should ask people who are 16 and up cause they are independent enough to get to the mountain by themselves, and are more mature on their vews.
just remember...its not rape, just surprise sex. -hoho420
Great to hear this from someone other than the guys at the ski shop. I think it was pretty evident watching the x-games that the stoke factor on skiing is heating up. Anyone crying about there being a chance they won't be the only skier in the park look at your lift ticket next time you go to the mountain. It ain't no country club, the more exposure we get the better off we'll be.
I accidentally touched my head
And noticed that I had been bleeding.
For how long I didnít know.
What was this, I thought, that struck me?
What kind of weapons have they got?
The softest bullet ever shot...
long story short he overshot. tried to finger a girl wearing a skirt in the movies, but overshot and got the pooper. then proceeded to wipe the poopy finger on the friend next to him.
skiing isn't cooler then snowboarding, nor is snowboarding cooler.. they're the same fucking thing and we all ride together because we love it, so everyone claiming one or the other is cooler, get a fucking clue.
Snowboarding is maing stream but so is skatting and thats only getting bigger and bigger yes more people are starting to ski but snowboarding still has skiing in publicity, overall riders, and on rails. Snowboarding will never be uncool,
