Or should that be bored cam? Thought I'd do a few snowboard-eye-view
shots. By the way, trying this while moving fast seriously doesn't help
with staying upright!

lovely shot. I'd been getting "need to ski" pangs all this week. Better hurry up and book a holiday, I guess : )

Hmmm...we were talking about snowboarding this weekend. Was it much better / faster than skiing?

Snowboarding is amazing. I went to Andorra earlier this year and its great. I really though it was so much easier than everyone anticipates! I paid about £550odd for a week all inclusive including 4 days tuition! It was awesome. I can't wait to go again. I did really hurt my coccyx though when I whacked down from toe to heel. Oooof the pain. Laughing felt like giving birth really quickly, again, again and again.

Thanks for the highlight :o)

My coccyx seems to be fine ta; all the falling-on-your-arse moments were kinda controlled. This was my first ever time doing any kinda snowsport, and I was amazed how quickly you can pick it up. The advantage here is that these mountains are a 30 minute drive from downtown. Plus my season pass with hire and 5 lessons cost me around 170 quid.

Crickson> dunno; never tried skiing. Most of the snowboarders were zipping past the skiers though. The season goes on until April if you wanted an impromtu holiday!

Its a preference thing really, skiers have a bit more "control" and can therefore generally go faster, I can ski, but you'd never find me using sticks, the moment I got on a board I knew I'd never go back.

I always found snowboarding way faster than skiing, but then I'm an old-skool boarder...I like a long asymmetric board with rigid bindings and hard ski boots, and they are fast. I find I can't carve hard enough on these new boards, so if I am somewhere I have to hire, I go for skis. Snowboarding is way easier to learn than skiing, just more natural somehow, but stunts seem easier on skis though... YMMV
