Shaun White, X Games and More: Snowboarding News Roundup

Discussion

  1. Re: freeskiers – in Mammoth this past weekend, we met a pair of skiers whose opinion was, “skiing was a dying sport till snowboarding came along,” and b/c of boarding the skiers started taking their skis into the parks, doing big air jumps/tricks like 1080s etc. I thought that was pretty cool – instead of the usual “us vs. them” attitude, skiers were giving us props. See? We CAN all just get along! 🙂

  3. I noticed a much larger percentage of skiers at Whistler than I normally see here in the mid-west or the mid-atlantic.

    Also, generally when I see people doing absolutely crazy stuff in the park or pipe, its almost always somone on twin tip skis.
