Oil and Water; Snowboarding and Alta/Deer Valley

Oil and water- two liquids which have a tough time mixing. Snowboarding and Alta/Deer Valley- a sub-set of the population and two mountains which have a tough time mixing. I must admit that I am a die hard skier. I have never put on a snowboard and probably never will. But throughout the years and all biases aside, I have had one secret desire- to see one of these mountains poached.

As many readers may know, the resort of Alta and Deer Valley in Utah are skier’s only resorts (ie no snowboarders allowed). I have logged many a skier day at both of these resorts and have never seen a snowboard on the Alta’s or Deer Valley’s mountain. But deep down inside the sight of a rebel snowboarder on a kamikaze mission to disrupt the utopia of the skiers was a sight I would love to see. As of yet, I have not had the privilege of witnessing this in person. But a few snowboarders were kind enough to capture it on video for all to see.

Enjoy your 5 seconds in the spotlight snowboarders. Skiers still rule the mountain.

I live for winter, from skiing to snowboarding to bobsledding to aprés skiing, it's all good. I live in Utah because it always snows here.
