this was on some kids nex page. what do you guys think of it?
"It’s funny to see how points
of can flip a full 180 as time passes and circumstances change. Skiers
used to be at war against snowboarders and wanted us out of their
resorts. As snowboarding grew, certain ski company’s got interested in
it for the money. Nowadays it seems like some skiers actually want to be like snowboarders.
I will say this, though-snowboarding pretty much made skiing cool again.
Freeskiing is still pretty new right now, but how many more years would
it have taken ski companies to make twin-tip ski if snowboarding didn’t
exist? How many years would have taken for parks and pipes to get built
if snowboarding didn’t exist? Yeah, snowboarding is saving skiing, ‘cause now there is more to it than down hill and moguls."
