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?

Yes, only a couple of times for both. I personally think downhill skiing is more difficult. Chair-lifts terrify me!

I haven't done either, but would choose snow skiing over ice skating.

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 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.

Ice skating is easy. Never been skiing. Been snowboarding. That's tricky.

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. :)


Tubing is a lot of fun! :)
