I know we like killing analogies here, but I still disagree w/the fundamental point of the ski/board analogy which is old dogs can't learn new tricks. Newer and different isn't always better. If someone prefers skiing (Avid/PPro/FCP Legend) to snowboarding (FCPX) maybe it's a simple as skiing lets them accomplish what they need to accomplish better than snowboarding. Nothing complicated. Nothing judgmental. Nothing adversarial. Just straight up pragmatism.

[Bill Davis] "And now in the winter, there are probably more snowboarding competitions in the media than traditional downhill skiing events, because they attract a fresh new audience.

Probably, but add in the relatively newer freestyle and freeskiing (which attracts the same demo that caused snowboarding to explode) and there are probably more ski events. FWIW, the X-Games has 5 ski events and 6 snowboard events (the events are the same save for whether your are competing on skis or a board) while the Olympics have 10 ski events (combined 'traditional' and freestyle) and 4 snowboarding events.

Freesking is the new, 'cutting edge' way to descend a mount, catch big air and show off in the terrain park.

Like you said, and so it goes.
