Two answers after a merger:

1. As two different sports, they both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Skiing can be used for hiking, if a free heel binding is used, and is easier to use as a transportation tool.

It takes a long time to excel at (years), but is easier for the first two days.

Skiing switch (backwards) adds a new dimension to skiing, and you can do more grabs and jibs on rails, because you have two separate skis.

You can generally go bigger and faster on skis.

Snowboarding is a different feeling, because you are practically Surfing on snow.

This is the main appeal of Snowboarding, especially when riding in powder, because you are on top of the snow, rather than moving through it.

It is hard to pick up in the first few days, especially without a teacher, but you can get relatively good in two seasons.

It is easier to do rails and boxes on a snowboard, which is a big advantage for many, and also easier to have style when freeriding and riding in the park.

Snowboard Boots are much more comfortable than Ski Boots.

Everybody Snowboards and Skis differently, so there are many different opinions on the subject.

2. I Think skiing is way better because You have less chance of being hurt and at the same time you go faster than a snowboard... Yes you can do a little more tricks on a snowboard and yes the skiis are more expensive to buy but you have way more fun on skiis.
