Default Intrested in Snowboarding.

Hey,
So recently i got interested in snowboarding (Mainly from go pro videos but who cares) after i had to give up about my previous hobby i wanted Motocross because of money, technical and family issues i had to give up so i began searching for something else, i found snowboarding, i always since a child wanted to snowboard so why not now the problem is i don't have where... i live in Israel (I lived in Canada, that's why i know English well at least i think and I'm used to snow) so my main idea meanwhile is to save money for a trip or w/e to the Hermon which is the tallest hill in Israel which has a ski and snowboarding resort. Does anyone have any "Replacement" for snowboarding or w/e for now?
Now, I've got tons of questions so let's begin:
1.Ski is more basic for a beginner right? so i suppose i go to a resort I'd be more likely recommended to ski than snowboard, is that right?
2.Is this "Hobby" more of a once in awhile thing? that's at least what i understood, unless your a professional or live in a resort
3.Is it fun? meanwhile the main thing that attracted me to it is the freedom (i think at least) the feel of the wind at your face and also everything white, (i love snow and plain and white stuff) and also more but a little bit more private
4.Is this "hobby" expensive? compared to motocross atleast, how much could a basic kit with everything needed can cost? (i speak way to early, i live in a movie)
Meanwhile that's all, i'll have more questions, prepare
Thanks
