This came up in a skiing news thread where a group is suing Alta to allow snowboarders. http://www.epicski.com/t/124939/snowboarders-sue-alta-ski-area
I brought up that based on my experience, when my group travels to Utah (this is our 4th of 5 years) we don't hit Alta even though more than half our group are skiers. We hit Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton... but no Alta. My thought is Alta would increase their business if they brought in boarders. Others may disagree. Let this highly unscientific poll be the judge.
Also, has anyone heard of any differences in business at Taos since the change there?
