Ski Canada has made a move against the growing numbers of people who participate in our sport.
For any of you who can find it, check out the article entitled 'Carnage Corral' in the November issue of the magazine.
The article is a plea from a Mr. Kevin Damaskie and the editors of Ski Canada. It is a plea to remove from the mountains what we love most.
The article is written from a first person perspective, about the inherent dangers that Mr. Damaskie has seen within the parks. The injuries, the horror. There are interviews with various people about how bad it is.
None of these have any factual backing to them. Every opinion in this article is hearsay, and the opinion of the Whistler-Blackcomb manager of communications who supports their park is bashed and not taken seriously.
In my mind, this article is written by a party that is uneducated in the advances of the sport, and the editors are ignorant for having it in their magazine.
That is why I propose for each and every one of you to the best of your ability, convince your parents to cease reading Ski Canada (SKIER is better anyways) and write a letter to the editor.
Ski Canada has been using the newschool revolution to sell their magazine more and more, sapping the money out of our small pockets to sell their magazine.
I say we show them they can't fuck with us.
This is war.
I'm over it.
