Default Starting off advice for someone err... wiser

My son is 9, it's his first year. I've skied all my life. Took a bit of a hiatus so all my gear is ~10 years old, so it's time for new. Or I can jump into boarding for less money.

I'm 43, so when I started off all there really was was skiing and I stuck with it. Now I'm thinking of changing over. But I don't know, at my age it all seems a bit daunting. At 5'9 ~155lb i'm still in somewhat decent shape, my center of gravity isn't all over the place like some my age . But I don't know, it just seems like such a huge learning curve in front of me.

I know you all are going to say 'jump into it', so I'm really just looking for some real life experience from some people who have seen or gone through the same thing.
