post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ive been snowboarding for a long time. The last time i went skiing was in 4th or 5th grade. Im in 9th grade now (15 years old). Im huge in park riding. I want to start skiing. Skiers have so much more style and there tricks are alot cooler. Is it to late? When i skied i was actualy really good. I feel like my skills will come back pretty quick. Will i be able to be come a good skier? Please help me.

Give skiing a try. Take some lessons to get some basics down. Good luck.

For the rest of your life, as long as you are willing to put your ego aside and look like a novice, it is never too late to learn anything.

bman: Welcome to EpicSki!  You are not the only snowboarder who has the urge to give skiing a try.  As you guessed, skiing will come back pretty quick.

 

There are a few tips here:

I have a friend who just did this at 50. Within 2 days it was like he never changed. He had boarded for 5 or 6 years for 30 days a year. At your age, it will come back even quicker. I have been noticing the trend to dump snow boarding for skis. I think with the tricks in snow parks, there are a less injuries also on skis.

Too late?  I started at age 38.  No, it most certainly is not.
