Visiting the wife's family for the holidays and will have no chance to hit the slopes. Have fallen so far as to read an article on skiing vs. snowboarding in "Via", the AAA magazine. A statement by one Allen St. John (writer for the NY Times and Rolling Stone) caught my attention. It's in the context of snowboards' superior float, and I thought I'd share it with you folks:
"Today's superfat powder skis, which enable biped sliders to join the fun, began as a snowboard ripped in half on a bandsaw."
(Title edited 'cause I didn't like it.)
