    Well, some of the Quebec resorts might as well forbid the whole thing. I saw on RDS the other day that 2 resorts are officially forbidding jumping in the, wait for it, snowboard parks… And that 3 others are considering the same. Unfortunately, I can’t remember which ones.

    a lot of heat surrounding this contest but i think the basic idea of ending segregation between skiers and snowboarders is pretty damn cool. we are all out there for the same reason right? snow?! anyhow, the company i work for is 50 some skiers and snowboarders and somehow we can manage to work in harmony… we want to encourage this and blur the lines between 2 planks or 1 and are throwing down an additional $5000 to the winners:
