That's an odd argument. It has nothing to do with "rich scum." Deer Valley is very posh in contrast Alta is a bit more grassroot. Plenty of high cost of entry resorts that allow snowboarding, especially in CO and CA...

It's more about these last few resorts sticking to old ways of thinking snowboarders are just rowdy beach bums taking modified surfboards or planks of wood down the mountian. Which has some slight true many years ago but that times has gone and past.
