Back In 1985, Skiers Really Didn’t Like This New ‘Snowboarding’ Fad
Snowboards are “Just like a missile.”
Back in 1985 trendy, terrible youths started to violate the winter slopes with their new, dirty fun; snowboarding. Snow patrol workers described snowboarders as, “Uncooperative smart-alecs, who have had a bit to drink and tend to lip off.”
Segregation, over-exaggerated descriptions of the terror of snowboarders running down innocent skiers, complaints of missing brakes…it sounds uncomfortably like the superior race (skiers) making plans to eradicate the lesser undesirables (snowboarders).
This is a lesson about human nature that needs to be spread. Going down a snow covered mountain at break-neck speeds can be done in numerous ways! We can share the slopes and all those angry skiers can suck it!
