Alta, oh the things skiers say.

No Snowboarding Allowed. Hello, 1987 called – they want their old world view back!

As you may know,    Alta is one of the only mountains left in the United States that does not allow snowboarding. Some people believe the lack of snowboarders is what makes it great. Personally, I disagree. What makes Alta great is the fact that it is a place where old time separatist skiers can go to congregate. Thanks Alta,  for keeping that negative attitude and an old world views separate from the generally public.

I for one hope, that someday an old bad ass snowboarder (hint hint Jake Burton), opens a Mountain just for snowboarders.

 Power to the Poachers!
