Have you ever been skiing or ice skating?

If you've done both, which one do you think is harder to do? If you've done neither, which one would you like to try?

Quoting Mari6443:

I've been I've skating a couple of times. I liked it. But I've never been skiing. I have no interest in it either.

I have skated, a lot actually, I have been a hockey player over 20 years. So lots of skating. I have never been skiing. No desire. Hopefully I'll play hockey again after baby comes.

Neither but I'd like to try ice skating. Dd is trying to convince me to do it with her this year.

I've done both & was very bad at both. I won't ever be doing that again.

I've been ice skating a handful of times.
Now skiing...ahhhh it was a former passion of mine! Every winter from age 4 until age 28 (the winter before I got pregnant) you couldn't rip me off the slopes!!!! And now I've not gone skiing since early 2011, so it's been almost 3 years. For me this is a personal tragedy!!!!! I grew up skiing in the east then we lived out west for a couple years and have since returned to the cold, icy east and I likely won't ski here again since I've been spoiled by the west. However when my little one is old enough (next year I'm hoping!) I'll take her to the mountains and see how she does!

I've done both.  I'm pretty good at ice skating, but it wasn't a fan of skiing.  I had this constant fear that I was going to get seriously hurt.  It didn't help that the day I went, it was ridiculously cold and windy out.

Yes, I was a competitive ice skater in middle and high school and enjoyed both cross country and downhill skiing growing up.

I ski more regularly, so Ice Skating is more difficult. But I can pick up ice skating quickly, when I first started skiing it took several years.

I am a Klutz.

i used to ice skate fairly often -- used to as in back in middle and high school.  I went cross country skiing once, fell down a hill, and hurt my knee -- after that I never dared to downhill ski - I certainly would have died if I ever tried it!  Lol
