Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last week my On The Edge colleague Ted Alvarez shared a video clip of Mike Douglas stating his case with a historical perspective in favor of freeskiing in the great Skiing vs. Snowboarding debates. Alvarez closed his post with the question, "How 'bout it, snowboarders? Anybody got a quality Riders' Retort to this beaten dead horse?"

To which I submit this totally amusing video clip, courtesy of xtranormal.com (with thanks to my friends at Rome Snowboards for sharing the link):

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
