1986 Breckenridge Newscast on Snowboarding | Classic Early Halfpipe Footage | “Nobody’s Going to Get Rich Snowboarding”May 15th, 2012 by
This news clip looks straight out of Anchorman- part of me actually wonders if they cut back to Ron Burgundy after it ends. The 1986 news clip- presumably from a Denver station, features the World Snowboard Classic from Brekenridge. There’s some classic footage in here, particularly the early halfpipe stuff. The interview with Tom Sims is pretty mint as well. However, most notable is the commentators observation that, “Nobody’s Going to Get Rich Snowboarding.” I believe there are some people today that would beg to differ.
