well theyre the same. torstine (sorry for my spelling) threw the first triple. but skiers can do a 1620
There are a lot more park snowboarders then skiiers at The Canyons. I'm from Socal and grew up boarding at Mt. High but that is mostly because the skiing culture is nonexistent. Once I moved to Utah and my roommate was a skiier and a lot of people here were skiiers it became a lot more accessible and I made the switch and I will never even think of going back to snowboarding.
Skiing is better all around. I don't understand why snowboarding gets as much hype as it does. I think the percentage of skiiers and snowboarders will level out and remain failry constant.
As far as who is better in the park and in competitions I really could care less, I don't compete in X-games and really don't like watching those competitions. I much prefer park / amatuer edits.
