I've just picked up both skiing and snowboarding again, grew up just a cuple of hundred feet from a ski lift, and we had free access, so that was shat I did 2-5 days a week up until I was 19... It was good to se that I've still got it
Anyway, Snowboarding for me is for powder and woods, I missed out on the whole park/pipe thingie... but in deep powder there's nothing like floating on a snowboard.
On a prepped course, or in old snow, skis are better,
Also, I agree with jubb, jumps are more fun on skis
