I first started snowboarding aged 5 in the french Alps. I loved anything to do with going downhill and snow so naturally I loved it.

    switch to skis. it is cooler more fun eaiesr to learn harder to master which means that you learn fast so that you have fun from the beginning and then it keeps you interested because you are always progressing and pushing the limit where as snowboarding you have to get the difficult beginning than you just do it no progression just nothing to everything in the blink of an eye. one second you don’t have it the next you do. skiing you get better and better until it is the best thing in the world Was this answer helpful?
