I think I may try skiing
 
While my son is learning, I'm considering giving skiing a shot. My buddies (who ski) are saying that the principles are the same, and I will pick it up very quickly.

Has anyone here tried skiing after boarding for many years? I have never skied in my life...

i was out at the hill one time and my brother and all his friends ski and i switched with one of them and let me tell you its definantly different. like its weird because you think your feet are attached to a board and which way you lean will take you but sometimes when i was turning right my left ski would just sit there.. idk i thought it was pretty different.. i only did it for like a half hour

I tried it way way way back in the day before I ever had a snowboard. It was hella easy.

Let me tell you, if you know how to skate on ice, you know how to ski. Ultimately, I didn't think it was that great.

its easier to pickup compare to snowboard...and i dont think skii is in anyway similar to snowboard.

Go rollerbladeing a few times the week before you go skiing, preferably down some not so steep hills. It will all fall into place at the mountain.

I think you either like it or not, it will take some getting used to, like anything...

Use to ski when I was a youngling, Still planning on picking it up again for certain backcountry trips, It's just easier to get to certain spots with ski's. I suppose a splitboard could work but I'd rather just pickup ski's.
