Ive recently started snowboarding. I skiid for a few years and wanted to try something different. Im still trying to decide which one I like better. When I get good enough at boarding Ill make my choice.

I voted snowboarding, just because it looks cooler....

Sking is fun though to watch. Should have voted Skiing...

My way of getting down a mountain? Why bother strapping either of those one me? I'd end up on my side any ways..... :D

I vote for neither, since right now both of them would wreck my recently operated on knee..........

I've havn't done either. If I had a chance to do one or the other, I would choose snowboarding.

Well, when you live in Florida it gets kinda hard to snowboard/ski. . .

but whenever I goto my grandma's house i try to go snowboarding. I've done it like 2 times now. I think it's fun. The 1st time wan't fun though. i spent most of my time on my "lower area of body"

"Skiing.... No SNOWBOARDING.... DUDE Skiing, I am so right"

LOL, that is what the Two Dudes in Los Angeles from Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 say.

But my real opinion is, I like both

I would have to go with skiing.
Its the only thing of the 2 that I've tried. I hope to get a chance to try out the snowboard some day.

Are you talking about ski-blades?
Those things are soo much fun, used 'em for 3 years. They go fast and you can still pull cool tricks.

Well, after some broken bones when I was younger from skiing.......I gave that up and never tried snowboarding. I have absolutely no desire to start up again.

not enough snow for either but I love sledding and bivvy bagging (thats when you slide down a snowy hill on a very slippy plastic bag) but since I watch more skiing on TV I guess I'll go for that. Have any of you been watching the World Cup and World Champianships? they are so good.

I say none. (Especially since I haven't tried either :) ) I fact, the last time I remeber touching snow was when I was 7 and we went to Tahoe. (Which is up north on the boarder of CA and Nevada) :o

nah, skis are cool. I've had a snowboard for years now, but it still is like new, i used it only so much that i learned snowboarding, and a few tricks, after that i went back to skis. Don't ask me why, i don't know...

Well let's see I've been a skiier for 16 years. I was on rescue patrol and ski patrol for 3 seasons. For the past 5 years I've been a hardcore snowboarder. My best trick on a board is a rodeo stalefish.

It's like apples and oranges: which one's better? To tell you the truith, They're both great!
