Snowboarding owes its beginnings more to skateboarding and surfing than to snow skiing. Over the past few decades, snowboarding has grown from a fringe movement practiced by a handful of young devotees in the backcountry to a legitimate sport with more than 6 million followers and a spot in the Winter Olympic Games. Ski resorts that once refused to open their trails to snowboarders now realize that the sport is big business. Snowboarders now have their own culture, language and style.
