Yes, only a couple of times for both. I personally think downhill skiing is more difficult. Chair-lifts terrify me!
Ice skating yes, skiing no. I would love to try skiing!! :)
Yes, both and I think they're equally hard in different ways. They both require balance and coordination. Ice skating around here is on a rink, so there isn't the communion with nature that you get from skiing. I think, for me, skiing would be harder at this point because I'm so out of shape and also because I have developed a rather paralyzing acrophobia which would make getting on a ski lift difficult...considering I used to do it regularly as a child I wonder where it came from.
I've gone Ice Skating.
I have and I equally despise both of them, skiing more so. I'm just horrible at both of them. You ought to see my 4 year old though, that kid can whizz down a slope! I'm just hopeless at winter sports.
Quoting caustinb:I've done both. I can ice skate ok, but it's exhausting on the legs. I CANNOT ski, but dh and his family do. I just go tubing with the kids. :)
