Snowtopia – What’s Your Prediction For The Future of Snowboarding?

Virtual-Snowboarding:

Someone invents a simulator that comes very close to replicating the actual feeling of snowboarding – and, while the piste remains untouched, the uber rich go into virtual-reality pods for a virtual snow-experience. ¬†For a while everyone panics that nobody will shred any more, but eventually they realise that this actually doesn’t hold a scratch on real snow.

Fears are confirmed as a new generation spends more and more time in front of screens and less time outside. Modern gaming claims to offer all the benefits of a day on the mountain with no risk to life and limb – and in virtual snowboarding 14-year olds who still live at home with mum and dad are owning pros (oh wait…). Unfortunately for them – winning at a video game, like fighting on the internet, never really counts for shit.
