Skiing - Easier to learn, more effective tool to get down the mountain, especially in less than ideal conditions. Much higher risk of ligament injury.

Snowboarding - Rough first few days, lower risk of injury to knees, more effective carving tool because more pressure distributed over the edge as opposed to a single point.

Both - Fun, Lifetime learning curve, about as dangerous as you make them.
