They say there’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s often the things we love the most that cause us the most pain. So, for our new weekly-ish column, we’ve caught up with some of the most relevant riders in the biz to share some of their favorite, and not-so-favorite, things about snowboard culture. First up, Ms. Madison Blackley.
