richer history- I'm only talking freestyle for both sports so it only goes back 30ish years
No Shaun White
healthier? how so? I don't understand.
better culture? based on what? Both park skiing and snowboarding as a whole just stole skateboard/surf culture and brought it to snow.
richer history - you would have been right if you weren't just talking freestyle skiing. Based on freestyle alone, one could argue that snowboarding is richer due to the trials they went through to become accepted by the ski industry. What has freestyle skiing fought for (besides acceptance from snowboarders)
Steve Stepp - wut?
No Shaun White - I would like to agree with you on this one, but as far as sport and industry is concerned, Shaun White has done more for the progression and growth of freestyle snowboarding into the mainstream than anyone else. That isn't exactly a bad thing.
