Seldom is the day that we open up The New York Times to something snowboard-related. More often than not, in a city housing over 8.4 million people, there's a grocery shopping-sized list of topics that take precedence over the few inches of snow in Central Park. For shits and gigs, we decided to look up all the snowboard-tagged articles on their site, which shockingly amounted to 11 posts in 2021. 48 posts in 2022, though, which leads us to believe there's a gradual shift into what's important in the Big Apple: snowboarding and it's climate-dependent survival.
If 2022's snowboard-tagged posts are any indication, it's clear we missed the mark on assuming The NYT doesn't prioritize boarding. It may not make the front page of your Sunday read, but their latest article definitely highlights an underlying problem in the city... NYC is in a snow drought. Many context clues lead us to that conclusion, with Trung Nguyen's intro clip in GATE 2 HELL being one, and the addition of indoor boarding at Big Snow definitely being another. Climate change is real (you fucks), and Jasper Craven's most recent article highlights just that.
