I started skiing when I was 9 years old, did it until I moved away to college where there were no mountains. Lived in the desert for a few years and snow sports were far from my mind. Took up snowboarding after I moved to the PNW and have been doing it since. Got on skis again and am having a great time with it.
I enjoy boarding and skiing about the same, which is immensely. They're similar in many respects but they feel different enough that I won't pledge allegiance to either. I see no reason to choose one over the other. Double the fun!
The new rockered fatty skis are awesome.
