This is the reason I'm getting into skiing:how quick did you pick it up?
i want to try skiing (feels dirty saying that... kinda like saying i wanna try a harley) since it looks like i can go a lot faster with more control than on a board.
Maybe, too early for me to have a solid opinion on that. Although I can definitely say I fell more during my first day of boarding, but that was 8-9 years ago. Probably wiped out close to a million times that day, vs three times today.You fall less in skiing compared to snowboarding. Snowboard offers bigger surface for artwork.
Hmm, not sure about the tree riding. I think I'd be more comfortable doing that on a board - less things to get caught in the trees, branches, etc. Would suck to have your skis go different ways around a tree, ya feel? :laughingthat looks like a blast.
i want to do more tree riding and just dont see snowboard having as much control as skies with poles.
