Yesterday I did something that I think most skiers should do. After skiing half a day with my friend who happens to board we went into the lodge for a break and decided that since our feet were the same size, that we should switch gear and each learn to ride for half a day for a fun experiment. And I know that that may bother some people because neither of us would then be riding equipment that was designed for us, but I more see it as using rentals.
Learning to ride half a day was the most fun I have had in a while and my friend loved the skis. To me it seems that there is always some tension between skiers and boarders and this is one way to easily break it. Take a day having fun and trying the other side.
As always enjoy the snow.
