I think that it just depends where you are. In Colorado, I can almost guarantee that snow skiing is more popular than water skiing. If you are on the coasts or have a large mass of water in your state, and no mountains, then water skiing will be more popular than snow skiing.
These two sports are both dangerous when you get to higher speeds. But the one sport that you can control more of is waterskiing. You can tell the boat driver to go faster or slower, or if you just want to stop you can let go of the rope and sink into the water. Where as if you want to stop in snow skiing and your a beginner then you will have to sit on your butt and thats not fun after a while. So, waterskiing is much safer because there are more things you can control, but that does not mean that there aren't any risks when eventually if you reach 36mph and you fall you can have a pretty nasty injury.
Because it's cheaper and more convenient. Take St. Anton for example you can fly into Innsbruck airport at eight o'clock and can be skiing by lunch time once you have hired skis.

There is 6 months snow in some areas in Finland annually. Skiing is easy way to move e.g in forest.
Colorado because it has more snow than Louisiana.
I'm not like a professional but I'm pretty sure water is a whole lot softer than packed snow.
Because Vermont is a rather snow filled state, it can be inferred that some popular winter sports include skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, slalom skiing, and ice sculpting.
in water skiing you have a handle
Yes, definitely. Since the sun reflects snow back up at you, and you are usually at a higher elevation when skiing, you might even burn more easily.

Coming from a snowboarder, Skiing is by far easier and warmer but snowboarding is way more fun.
skiing or snow adventure
It really depends where you are. Sometimes, April brings heavy snow, and skiing is fab, yet you can ski in a place where the snow is iffy, and the skiing quality will be iffy as well. If all of the snow is melted, remember that skiing will be hard !
you can go skiing anywhere in the world that has snow or artificial snow surfaces
There are two main parts of skiing which are sand skiing and snow skiing. classes include trick skiing and freestyle skiing.
