Rick Alden of Wasatch Equality goes snowboarding at Alta

As you may know, there is a heavy legal battle raging between Wasatch Equality and Alta Ski Resort to end the ban that prevents snowboarders from riding the resort’s lifts. The points to refute Alta’s argument are overwhelming and yet the resort has managed to file Motion to Dismiss against the case, to which Wasatch Equality has crafted a 53-page response to back its claim. Here Rick Alden of Wasatch Equality goes over what the Alta experience is like for snowboarders and provides further evidence for its archaic mindset and attitudes towards snowboarders.

Bjorn Leines interview coming soon…

From Wasatch Equality’s YouTube:

TOGETHER WE MOVE MOUNTAINS

In the early days of snowboarding, Alta Ski Area was one of the first resorts to open its lifts to young riders, but complaints against snowboarding and popular opinion at the time lead Alta management to ban the sport indefinitely.

Now, more than three decades later, Alta Ski Area is one of the only resorts in the country still refusing to accommodate the snowboard community, and the only resort doing so on public land.

Join Wasatch Equality in fighting to overturn Alta’s snowboarding ban.
