Considered by ALL skiers to be better than snowboarding (even those who have boarded before) because the tricks look sicker, the speed is faster, and it is much more fun to bomb through the powder. Plus you dont sit around on the cold snow, take off and reattatch your boots in the lift line, or worry if chicks will get on you. It is also much more versatile when dealing with tree runs and making minute corrections to dodge punk boarders that sit on their asses right below knolls waiting to be taken out.
