Even today, snowboarding is still not allowed in some ski areas. Alta, Deer Vally, and Mad River Glen still do not allow snowboarders. Some of these are major resorts. There still is some skier-snowboarder tension, but it is fading. Something that is not fading is Burton Snowboards. Burton remains the undisputed ruler of snowboarding, and Jake Burton remains that fun-loving kid riding down a hill on a Snurfer. He has two children and he snowboards at least 100 days a year.
