The "alpine apartheid" has ended.
Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post both headed down to cover the coming of the knuckle draggers (I can call them that since I'm a knuckle dragger.)
No big dust up, just people having a good time.
The post had a very short, matter-of-fact report and didn't send a photographer. (see freelance results left)
The Rocky spilled a bit more ink, but I was disapointed to see the writer propped up the old straw man of skier/border strife, saying "Snowboarding has been shadowed by controversy ever since pioneers like Jake Burton, Tom Sims, and Chuck Barfoot pioneered the sport in the late 1970s."
Makes it sound like some deviant cult where you get to marry more than one person.
Anyway, shred on. Taos rocks.
