The rivalry wasn't relevant until the 1980s due to near-100% bans across resorts
Skiing was recreational activity already seen as "for the upper class"
Age difference played a huge role between the groups, skiers are older on average

Originally called snurfing
Not allowed at most resorts
The snowboard design we know today was made by Jake Burton
