Re: Skiing or Snowboarding???

Skiing... been doing it for 28 years now but I did snowboard for a few until there were too many. Now it's unique to drop in on a pipe with skiis and pump higher than the plankers. I mean no disrespect.. Just that skiing is more unique now and skiing without the ability to place a yard sale wherever you want just won't cut it

Snowboarding for me.

I used to ski but switched to snowboarding about 10 years ago and never looked back.

Skiing for me. I'd love to be able to snowboard but with broken wrists being one of the most common injuries I just can't risk it.

Re: Skiing or Snowboarding???

Skied through high school and college (about 28yrs old) one day I just decided to become a boarder (mainly because my brother was and I thought it looked cooler). Went to the ski swap, changed all my gear and headed up to the mountain for what would be about a day or two of misery but I didn't give up (the snow was bad it was end of year snow). On day three it all started working for me, and I have never, and will never look back. I love the feeling of the frontside, backside lean - and what puts boarding over the top - POWDER! No comparison, it is like your on clouds - amazing. Here is my new board for 2010-11 snow season - yes, as said previously by a skier TWO EDGES RULE (skiers have 4 fyi).

Re: Skiing or Snowboarding???

I am 46 and just started snowboarding because my 12 year old daughter wanted to snowboard. I think it was the influence of Rocket Power that swayed her to snowboard. I do longboard too which really helped me.
