Skiing and snowboarding are two winter sports that are great. Skiing is when you have two blades and skis with bindings to clip in your boots. Snowboarding only uses one board in which you have boots that you strap into. I must say that the snowboarding boots are a lot more comfy then the ski boots. I would say that skiing is the easiest to learn however snowboarding is the easiest to master. When skiing or snowboarding you will need roughly the same clothing, which is warm and waterproof so you may need to buy clothing. In skiing you can also have poles which are used to make yourself go faster by pulling yourself along the slope. There are loads of places to go to go skiing or snowboarding, however it can get a bit pricy if you want to go abroad so there are artifical slopes like the one in edinburgh. If you've never tried these sports then you must try them!
