In the interest of full disclosure, I have personally neither been skiing nor snowboarding, though a friend offered to take me snowboarding once. It was up in the mountains, which my asthma does not like, at their little cabin that did not have indoor plumbing, which my prissy ass does not like, so I declined. Also, I’m a chicken and would probably either break my neck or never manage to get my butt out of a snowbank.
I should go sometime though. It looks fun, and fresh air is supposedly good for you. I dunno. It’s a bit of a slippery slope (pun intended) from mountain day trips to overnight camping, and I love not camping.
