First of all, I have little experience with ski forums (I am a member of non-ski forums), so if this thread is in the wrong forum (I tried my best to put in the appropriate forum), then moderators please move this thread to the appropriate location.
I absolutely HATE the fact that I get treated as a second-class citizen just because I live in the U.S. I can never experience this for myself. All that I can do is stare at my computer screen and long for the thing that I want. The unintelligent ski resorts here in the U.S. very seriously need to get their act together and treat me like the human being that I am.
I don't know how to join a campaign to get the ski resorts to give sledders what they deserve, but if there is any such campaign that exists then I will sign the petition in a heartbeat. I am just as much a human being as the sled-lovers in Europe, so I'm failing to see the logic.
My question is, is there any ski resort in the northeast/mid-Atlantic region, which will allow what is in the video. And if such a ski resort does not exist, then is there a campaign to get ski resorts to allow sledging? I know that snowboarders (in the 1970s and 1980s) have had to fight for the privilege to snowboard. Is there anyone who will fight for the privileges of us sled-lovers.
I wish that more people would knock on the doors of the ski resorts to petition them to get their act together. I want what the snowboarders have.
Everything within me cries out to experience sledging, without me having to travel across an entire ocean. If I someday take a trip to Europe then it will cost me a tremendous amount of money. Transatlantic trips are expensive.
