Snowboard or ski?

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.


May the Force be with you...

Well, i split half and hlaf with Skiing and using the short skis. Both are very fun.

Never tried snowboarding.


Peace is but a shadow of death,
Desperate to forget its painful past.
And though we hope for promising years,
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.

Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone.

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.....

skiing cause it's alot like rollerblading, and it's fun, tho i've only skiied once...on my 10th or 11th bday...


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

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

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

Skateboarding?

I haven't tried either of those, but I would probably say snow boarding.

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.

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)

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!
