"Skiers view snowboarders as a menace; snowboarders view skiers as Elmer Fudd"
- Dave Barry

"While skiing has been on the decline over the last decade, snowboarding has consistently been the fastest growing winter sport in the world."

"...resorts which were at first anti-boarding are now ...actively encouraging snowboarding.... Ski manufacturers too ...are now reluctantly jumping on the bandwagon."

" just do whatever you want to do. can be laying out your whole body touching the snow you're floating through the off-piste powder making huge 'airs'...."

"All I know is I will never ski again and I don't know anyone ...that will. It's not that we've all gone anti-skiing ...but the enjoyment you get from boarding simply blows skiing away."
