Best Answer

Skiing is definitely easier to learn. I've skied for almost 5 years, and just recently I've been trying Snowboarding. But I've heard that once you get the hang of snowboarding It's really fun and easy.

That is definitely true, I've been a skier for 6 years and a boarder for 2. Skiing was much easier to learn. Once you get the hang of snowboarding you get pretty good pretty fast. Basically skiing is easier to learn but harder to master but snowboarding is harder to learn but easier to master.

Which is better ski or snowboarding?

That depends, skiers would probably say skiing and snowboarders would say snowboarding. You would have to try both to really know but then that's everyones individual opinion. I am a snowboarder so I would say snowboarding is the best. (By different person) I think that skiing and snowboarding are both equal in some way. If you were to be starting one of those two winter type sports, I believe that you should start off with skiing. Then advance to snowboarding if you wish to do so. This is what I did when I wanted to do a winter sport. If you want to join a ski and boarding club, join the Eskimo Club in Colorado(if you are in Colorado). As a general rule, skiing is easier to learn but harder to master, snowboarding is harder to learn and easier to master (after you have general skills and experience).

How is snowboarding easier?

As a snowboard instructor, I believe that snowboarding is a little more tricky to learn, but then easier to master. You have to really focus on your balance. As you get better, you start to use your lower half of your body to do all the work. It starts in the feet, goes to the knees, then finishes in your hips. Once you get the hang of it, it gets progressively easier to do manuevers such as carving,wide radius turns, close radius turns, and then maybe even the terrain park. Snowboarding is a lot of fun and is definetely worth learning. skiing is easier to learn, but then it gets really boring. theres only so much you csn do with it. Snowboarding is much more entertaining.
