7:44 am
them from riding down the noun tin. what? loveland, colorado, not far from where the case is unfolding in denver. david, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. like most ski resorts in the country, they share the mountain in loveland, snowboarders and snow skiers. the bottom line comes down to this, here's the question in this case, can a resort that leases land from the federal government say yes to people who want to snow ski but no to people who want to snowboard? as this historic footage shows, for more than 75 years, alta has promoted itself as a skier's paradise. >> enthusiastic skiers from around the globe flock to this unique resort. >> reporter: known for its deep powder and beautiful scenery, alta is one of three resorts in the u.s. that doesn't allow snowboarding. it's a policy this group of snowboarders want to change. >> it's about access, exclusion
7:45 am
and violates the law. >> reporter: alta leases public lands from the u.s. forest service. rich and andrew seen with their lawyer, have been snowboarding since the '80s and they're two of the four snowboarders who filed suit. they say alta skier's only policy is discriminatory and violates their constitutional rights. >> under the law, if you have a policy that excludes one group of people because you don't like that group of people, that violates the equal protection clause. >> i think part of it is, you know, that's my public land as well. they operated on public property. i feel like i have a right to go and use that mountain. >> reporter: this undercover video provided by the snowboarders involved in the case shows the level of animosity some skiers have toward boarders, whom they perceive as dangerous risk-takers. >> [ bleep ] out of control. >> you guys are the worst. i don't ever want to see a snowboarder near me. >> reporter: they contend they're banning snowboards, not
7:46 am
the people who ride them. in a statement to cbs news, the company says restrictions are a business decision, made in order to promote a unique recreational experience for their customers. they say the equipment restrictions are not about banning people. >> this doesn't have a snowball's chance. the equal protection clause is concerned about laws that treat people differently based on who they are. and it's okay, in most cases, for the government to treat people differently based on what they do. >> reporter: these snowboarders know they're likely facing an uphill battle, but they hope the legal system will give them a lift. >> it is a passion, a way of life, to be excluded from the best powder at alta and not be part of that, something is very disappointing. >> reporter: there is no word on when the federal appeals court is going to make their decision, but, norah, a judge in utah threw out the case because he said allowing the case to move forward could open the door to
7:47 am
more lawsuits being filed against private companies. >> really interesting story, david. >> can't you set up two separate lanes. no? one for snowboarders and one fo? >> no. maybe two separate mountains but not two separate lanes. >> i don't ski. that's why i'm asking. the holiday shopping season is upon us. ahead, how to stay on budget and get your financial plan in shape before the new year. plus, a giant panda meets the public for the first time. look how cute. she's not impressed by all the attention, though. a little sleepy. 7:47. time to check your local weather. >> announcer: this port
