It’s a debate as ancient as time itself, and by this we mean the period of time that’s occurred between 1965 and the present day. Skiing or snowboarding, what’s better? Who’s cooler? Who looks the best eating fondue?
Well it’s time to put all that to one side, and settle things the good old fashioned way… with an article-list thing. Never ones to favour the “agree to disagree” approach, we’ve listed twelve reasons why we think skiing is definitely cooler than snowboarding.
The rivalry between those who choose "planks" (skis) and those who prefer "trays" (snowboards) is well-documented. As a lifelong skier who decided to learn snowboarding several years ago, I feel anyone who doesn't do a bit of both is missing out. But not everyone has the time to learn both modes, so which one to go for? Here's a team which try both of them and doesn't regret.
