-karma for a pointless and very poorly written thread.
If you were expecting to get a rise out of the community, I doubt you will. Maybe a few years ago you would have, but I'm pretty sure most of the ns members don't give a shit. Everyone is over the whole "skiboarding/snowblading is stupid" thing.
You may not think about it this way, but skiboards/snowblades bring people to the mountain that can't handle skiing or snowboarding. Plus with the money from rentals...they seem like a good thing to me.
