My mom got my husband, brothers and myself a gift card to Snowshoe Mountain in WV for xmas! I started snowboarding probably 3 years ago and i can at least make it down the mountain without making a fool of myself haha – prior to that though I had never done either. We live about 2 hours from the NC mountains so I really only get up there a couple times a year so i’m still learning.
My husband grew up in MA and VT so he was really good at skiing but made the switch to snowboarding when we started going together.
So hive, do you snowboard or ski?

I can do both but I look like a scarecrow caught in a tornado when I am skiing, on the other hand, I am decent on a board. So much more similar to the skateboarding I did as a kid.

I am currently learning to snowboard. I was waffling between the two, but I have lousy joints (knees and ankles) and what I like about the snowboard is that you’re so locked in place. I feel like my knee could give out easily with the skis since they’re going in two directions. And your ankles are pretty much immobile in the crazy snowboard boots.
That said, I can still barely go a few feet on the snowboard, but I’ve only been once.

I use to know how to ski. A few years ago Darling Husband taught me to snowboard on a sledding hill in our town. I was awesome so we decided to go an actual ski resort. I could not make it down the bunny hill and kept running into the rope that pulls people back up. Needless to say we never went again:)

I have an apalling sense of balance, so I know snowboarding is probably out for me but I would LOVE to learn how to ski at some point!

I skiied when I was younger but took up snowboarding a few years ago and love it! I even have my own board now! 🙂

I used to ski, and did it for over 10 years. Tried snowboarding a couple times.
I miss skiing so much! Haven’t done it in over 6 years now 🙁

Does snow tubing count?

I’ve been skiing all of my life and LOVE IT. I’ve been snowboarding for a few years, but just can’t get the hang of it. I took Fiance out for his first time last year and it was HI-larious to watch a grown man fall so many times. Can’t wait to go again this winter!

I snowboard…well, I snowboard poorly right now! (just started!) It is a blast though, and I am really enjoying getting used to it! I’d like to try skiing eventually, but my Darling Husband and all his friends board…so that’s why I got into it.

I am terrible at snowboarding! I am not that great at skiing either. I just hate getting hurt. I need lessons I guess…

I’ve been a skier since I was pretty little. My whole family skis (and my brother even works at a ski resort in Utah). I love it!

I started skiing when I was 4 and raced in college! Can’t get enough! 🙂

I’ve never been snowboarding. Only been skiing a few times, I can just “snowplow” on the bunny slopes.

I grew up on skis and then tried snowboarding in my early teens… I have been snowboarding for about 8 years and love it .. but I sometimes go back to skiing just to switch it up .
