Nothing wrong with wanting to ski, and generally speaking it is easier to wedge around the mountain and see more terrain than it is as a first time snowboarder. Learning to become a "good" skier took longer than learning to snowboard for me, but if you're a former hockey player then maybe you have a head start in that regard.
I won't deny that the snowboard learning curve can really punish you early on, but I've found the pay-off to be completely worth it. Having said that if you don't go often and you feel more comfortable skiing then go for it. It's really about what you will have the most fun doing.
