As action sports have overgrown wild times of hotel destruction and in fact became one of the fastest growing segments in sport industry and can be now days even considered as part of mainstream sports, we believe that they represent strong alternative to existing resort sports, specially for generation Y and consequently big opportunities for the resorts.
