PIZZA DO A PIZZA!!!!! I am pretty sure when skies do a pizza there is way more damage done to a slope than a snowboard stoping also skiers have two effective edges and snowboarders have one I think skiers move snow than snowboarders @ufoserrywherr . Also because alta is on public land it should be open to everyone to enjoy. In my mind any resort that is on private land and is privately owned should be able to do whatever they want like mad river glen and deer valley. Yeah as a snowboarder it disappoints me but it's their decision as a business. Alta is on public land it should be able to be enjoyed by everyone. And if you are making bull shit excuses why snowboarders have less control or they make the snow conditions worse I'll throw on a pair of skis myself and probe anyone wrong... I can do a pizza
I lived at the pdog for 3 winters. Truth be told the terrain is better over at the bird. Why would alta allow? They don't need the money they're in the black most years. Alta's value proposition is a "powder SKIING" experience. If they allow, a place that already gets beat pretty quick, will get tracked even quicker and thus the powder skiing experience is diminished which is what the alta brand is all about. Gotta think like a business people
Its a niche resort
Ok, let's compromise on the Alta issue......Alta stays skiers only....Snowbird goes snowboard only.......what could be more fair?
They can keep alta. We just get chads gap ;)
Take out the lifts and turn it into backcountry only. Anything goes if it is earned. Just an idea.
