I haven't read anything about it recently and at least in Colorado the numbers seem to be fairly even early season. Your observation might be a very correct one Rusty.
Love your sport more than a skier?
My thoughts based on my observations, are that boarders, or a great many of them, are younger, carefree, did not pay for their gear, destroy their boards, go the the terrain parks, grind those bases on all sorts of hard metal objects and really couldnt care less if the trail is strewn with gravel, grass, and what not. So if the hill is open theyll be there no matter what.
