somebody used rollerskates in the mid 1700's or so. skateboarders did use rollerblade wheels at first, until they used clay which was a dumb idea cause they melted.
stop arguing. realize that trick difficulty aside, everyone else thinks skiers dress like idiots and lack style and that you all just rip off snowboarders which may or may not be true but might as well be true because thats what people think. Only you who ski see style where others don't.
inb4 skiers don't care what others think, skaters don't either so all this is pointless.
