The Great Snowsports Debate: Snowboarding vs Skiing - Which is Better?
It's an interesting debate, Skiing vs Snowboarding - which one is better? At our house the argument rages on each winter. We are a family with two teens, one who is an avid snowboarder, the other is a skier. Both girls are extreme athletes, both prefer to be in the half pipe over any other area of their sport, both have held the Jr national championship title for multiple years and both have been named to their respective national team.
Honestly, even if I had an opinion on skiing vs snowboarding, I wouldn't dare express it in my home. However, I can start an on-line debate and open it up to you. So, here is your chance to express your opinion, and if you participate in either of these downhill winter snow sports, you probably have a pretty strong opinion already.
So, which is the better choice, to ski or to snowboard. Here is your opportunity to tell us what you think. (Me, I would pick a summer sport, but we will save that for another debate.)

This movie covers both skiing and snowboarding and it does it through expert in both sports. Although it is a Warren Miller film, he does not actually appear in the movie. The stars of the film are amazing athletes, so of whom we know personally. Maybe that's why it is our number one pick.

or Skiing Better than Snowboarding?
When I listen to my kids and their friends, the debate often changes. What makes them think that skiing is awesome, or snowboarding rules? Well for my children it would be fun. Yes, one finds skiing more fun, the other thinks snowboarding it better. But what about:
- Ease of learning
First Timers - Easier on Snowboard or Skis?
