Ski or board?

Anyone ski or board? I love to ski but only go about once a year anymore. Used to be able to ride moguls but now I'm just happy to not fall going down an icy black diamond.

I snowboard.
Snowboarding is harder to learn but easier to progress at. Skiing is the inverse of that.

Ski.
Fortunately for me, I live less than 2 hours from Big Sky and about an hour and a half from Bridger Bowl, home to some of the most technical in-bound terrain in the country. Whitefish isn't bad either, but it is better for mountain biking, IMO. This winter has been pretty mild, but the snow we have had has been in absolute dumps! HUGE powder days this year! You guys on the east coast think YOU got snowed on? Bridger got like 18 inches in less than 5 hours when I was up there about a month ago

I've always skied. I told myself next time I was at a slope I'd snowboard, but I haven't been back in years. Trying to plan a trip to Snowshoe Mtn sometime.

Next year I promised I'd start snowboarding. I've always skateboarded and wakeboarded, so I should be ok to start with.

I've never wakeboarded, I've always wanted to give it a go though.

It's fun. And easier than people think. When you start from the water the natural instinct is to pull yourself up, but that's when you fall. Let the boat pull you up.

Ski. Snowboarders are like obstacles or jumps when they perch in the middle of the hill and unbuckle from their boards.

I disagree. I have skied since I was 5, the first time I went snowboarding I was able to do so without falling by the end of the day.

I think it is much easier for people to learn to snowboard and that is why more beginners choose boarding over skiing.

I like Killington, Stratton is good too but I would have to pick Okemo over both.
