    I fucking love skiing. I learnt to snowboard (ish) on a dry ski slope and then tried it on snow but its not as fun imo.

    All about just bombing it down pumping some dirty dnb :D

    Skiing's better than boarding IMO, much quicker and less time on your arse...

    Ski school an absolute waste of money!! So easy to learn with some simple instructions ski school is just waste and after a day you spend your day waiting around for the retards that still haven't grasped it!

    Andorra very cheap but I didn't think much of the snow when I went... France = best resorts for heavy drinking and general 'brits abroad' debauched behaviour. :D

    skiing is just quicker if you dont know how to freeride properly ...
    the same with time spent on your arse.

    love boardin till i fist started ~9 years ago tho i had some serious injuries out of it :D

    skiing isnt just as much fun. u dont have the possibilities you got with a good board. the differences between skiing and boarding are like the ones between rollerblading and skating. one is damn cool and gets everybody excited (including yourself^^), whilst the other one is just laaaaaame, easy to master and nothing special :D :D :D
