In many ways, we snowboarders actually have it just as good – if not better – than surfers. We get to cut, slash and layback like our boardshort-wearing relatives, we go faster and catch bigger airs, we sit on a padded chairlift without ever having to paddle, and though Craig Kelly, the father of freeriding, once said of good snow that “[these days] you’ve got to go further to get it,” there’s hardly a fight for resources going on. Ever heard of localism at a ski resort? It’s kind of an oxymoron: pretty much everyone is a tourist.
