    You're comparing those recent laws with snowboarding at Alta?

    Yeah, not really the same at all. It was pretty bad that last year we had racial tension and people upset about same sex marriage and LGBT rights....and these guys in Federal Court claiming that their "civil rights" were violated because they could not do a specific activity at a private business that leases land from the US Forest Service, and has been since 1938. I know it is a very personal issue for folks, but really, it is a choice as to if you ski or snowboard and it really smacks of "first world problems" to be filing a federal case over it when people's civil rights ARE being violated.

    No rational human being could disagree with this.

    You could argue that people who were persecuted over their religious beliefs could have chosen a different religion.

    An extreme example, yes, but it's not that cut and dry

    Religious beliefs are protected by the U.S. Constitution; a choice of recreation is not.

    Got a meeting this morning at the firm that represented the pro-snowboard side and just lost. Think they will let me in?

    Did you go there to pitch them on your idea that if Snowboarding were considered a religion they would have a constitutional case? I think it's a brilliant idea and you just may be the one who finally changes the face Alta.

    I think you should've been a little more forward and wore your Alta Tie!
