Having learned to ski at a very young age (approximately 4 yrs old) and skiing all the way up until age fourteen, when I started snowboarding, I feel I have the ability to speak from experience about both of these.

First of all, I would like to bring forth the fact that snowboarders receive the complete package when buying a board, they can truly shred in any conditions on a single snowboard. Skiers have serious issues moving from off piste to groomers, and suffer in conditions like breakable crust and death cookies. I can ride the same board all mountain at the resort as I take into the backcountry for powder and spring riding.

Second, I would like to bring into question the major difference in cost between the two. A complete setup for a snowboard can be purchased brand new for around $650, while a new set of skis/bindings/boots/etc. will most likely cost over $1000.

I'm interested to hear your input on these critical pieces of the sport.
