Look at how things have changed!
In this video from a news segment produced by Canada’s CBC, we get to see what skiers thought about “skiboarders” – what they derisively called snowboarders 30 years ago. The rivalry is still here today.
“They’re dangerous. If one of these skateboards, ski-boards, whatever they’re called, hit a person… They’d break their leg.”
“Even if snowboarding is just another California fad, the people who work on local ski hills say, ‘one season is one too many.’”
“If these boards become more popular, there’s gonna be more hassles, more confrontation, so we just like to say we don’t want them at all.”
Some things will never change…
