Just recently been interested in the business side of snowboarding...namely sponsorships. I was just wondering how much pro snowboarders pull in from sponsors? I know "a lot"...but just curious on what these board/outerwear companies pay their riders. Given the bad economy and shrinking margins are riders being dropped like crazy? My curiousity i guess has been sparked by seeing Muller sign w/ Nike (outerwear) and Forum's team just get bigger and bigger. Also noticing different directions companies are taking w/ the type of riders they sponsor. Burton seems to be out to build a contest army...and then there are companies like stepchild where their riders just seem to ride rails all day and make movies :P
