Comments: Ski Rage: WTF?

People hate snowboarders out here.

Taos/Angelfire NM has even banned them.

For simply running over the girl's skis with the snowboard, I agree with throwing the book at the dad.

But if the snowboarder had bowled over my daughter when she was 7, I cannot guarantee that I would have remained calm and collected. I may not have punched a girl, but I might have attempted to make kindling out of the snowboard with the help of the nearest tree. {If they ain't made of wood, then forgive me.}

If you want to hear Neal Boortz rant, just bring up the issue of snowboarders.

First of all, thanks next ski vacation will be at Taos! Every time I've been out with my two kids (ages 4 and 6) this year, we've had at least a couple of near misses with out-of-control snowboarders. Today a teenage girl boarder plowed into my 6-year-old and sent him and his skis and poles flying. There's just no excuse for it, and I think skiers are right to be angry (although I don't condone beating up a kid over it).
