Snowboarders ever think of picking up ski's

Lately, I've been thinking of picking up a pair of ski's as sometimes skiing looks just as fun.

Curious as to if other members have thought the same and have ended up boarding and skiing.

Problem is, if I do pick up skiing, when I'm skiing I will want to board as well...

1st world problem right here...

Negative. I grew up sking and most of my friends ski. But, I never want to go back.
It is fairly easy to pick up, unlike riding.

1st world problem indeed. Save the money you'd spend on dorky ski gear, and spend it on a pow trip.

I also fantasize about buying spyder jacket and pants. I have actually started carrying my board an my shoulder and turning around all the time creating a 6 foot kill zone all around me.

Yes I have. Although I just borrowed friend's gear. It is a lot of fun but I prefer snowboarding.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
