No, not all riders are "riff-raff". Some of my best friends ride. DV always has projected this exclusive air to it. It was always a better dressed crowd, too. They still don't allow riders. But, hey, they actually have a slopestyle terrain park this year! I can't see them holding out much longer against snowboards with all the little kids taking up riding instead of skiing. It makes it hard on a family when Mom and Dad want DV, but the kids want to ride. It will be interesting to see if they keep bucking the demographics and keep relying on folks who just ski. In the case of the St. Regis, they better have a shuttle service available to guests who ride, or they will be missing out on some guests, I think!
