As I looked down on the ski hill last weekend from the lodge, I couldn't help but notice the disproportionate number of snowboarders and skiers. There seemed to be three snowboarders for every skier. Do you think skiing will slowly disappear? I don't know of any young people taking up skiing...they are all learning to snowboard because that's the "in" thing. Those of us who ski probably don't want to learn a whole new sport like snowboarding, but what about when we are all gone? Will there only be snowboarders left? I know I didn't ski for 20 years while I was raising my kids, but at that age I wanted to go back to something I knew...not to a new sport. I think all the snowboarders will do the same thing. Maybe some day people will say "Remember when people used to use those "ski" things and those long poles with baskets on the end?" Lets go watch some of the old movies of those funny-looking things!
