"There are still four resorts in North America, that still don't allow snowboarding. We're throwing down a $5,000 cash purse to the person or crew that submits the best video documentation of their poach experience from each resort."
These resorts being Deer Valley, Taos, Alta, and MRG (Mad River Glen)

I was reading the thread in Ski Gabber, and many responses from skiers made me start to wonder what a snowboarders view on this was. So I went to the Burton message board, and read the thread that they had going on (12 freakin' pages). The feel was that this was a bad idea. I mean, the guys poaching were not exactly doing it in a friendly matter. They were acting like hooligans. They didn't display the snowboarder that I am, for sure. Doing this doesn't promote the ending of the whole "skiers vs. snowboarders" crap. Which is what needs to happen. The only thing that has ever bothered me about these resorts not allowing snowboarders, is that I don't get to go along with my friends. Otherwise, I have had nothing against them.
What do you think about it?
