Read between the lines - it's not environmental. It's a lawsuit.

No - verified as real.

A single board or a pair of skis is not going to create a rut that will cause anybody any problems.

When they have a race, then pull up the gates and reopen the run, the ruts can throw you, if you aren't paying attention or flat light.

Some freecarvers look dangerous because they are going so fast. Some (boarders) can go so slow and still arc and lay down on the snow and going slow! That boggles my mind, wow! How do they do that?

I remember when Welch didn't allow snowboards either.

They should just turn it into a tube-park. Chair lifts and inner-tubes.

The coaches used to make the racing team sideslip/snowplow the ruts from the course after a race at some areas in the old days, probably just the kids that didn't do well.

The runs they set gates on do get pretty rutted up. I've gotten thrown around by them more than once.

Good grief!  Next thing you know and they will start putting safety bars on chair lifts.

 

Hey, somebody had to say it.
