The pointless battle between skiers and snowboarders erupts every season. Skiers use the entire slope and the sound of whizzing snowboarders is crazy. Skiers are wimps and snowboarders are slow. There are more than enough reasons to dedicate a piece to the ever-recurring discussion; why skiing and snowboarding are completely different. Time for some substantiation: skiers versus snowboarders.
Advantages skiers versus snowboarders
A number of advantages that skiers have over snowboarders:
-Skiers can easily and quickly take a schnapps if they have Après Ski poles… snowboarders have to make do with a silly bottle
-Skiers are best at après skiing. It's not called après skiing for nothing, otherwise they would have called it après boarding, right?
-Skiers don't have that mess with bindings every time
-Skiers have no problem with flatter parts… a piece of cake!
-Skiers often keep the slopes tidy, snowboarders whiz an unprecedented amount
-Skiers have less trouble with chairs and drag lifts, snowboarders often struggle
Benefits snowboarders versus skiers
Fair is fair, snowboarders also have a lot of advantages over skiers:
-Nice shoes, a guarantee to walk and dance normally (après ski advantage)
-Snowboarders carry their board much easier than those bloody clumsy skis
-Snowboarders don't have to carry around those crazy ski poles
-They look much cooler than skiers with their bulky ski boots and skis
-Snowboarders sit down more easily, skiers are quite quickly in the creases when they do this
-Snowboarders do not easily lose their snowboard while boarding
Skiers are often annoyed by skidding snowboarders, while snowboarders go crazy with skiers with skis on their shoulders going in all directions. Let's just say to each his own. As long as everyone has a fantastic ski holiday, the only complaint is that we don't want to go home at the end of the week. In the end, both skiers and snowboarders are winter sports enthusiasts and isn't it nice if we occasionally piss each other off?
Conclusion skiers versus snowboarders ; you should do what you like and what you feel like doing, winter sports are fantastic anyway! Fortunately, our offer on the website is intended for both worlds; Après Ski poles for the skier and the Beardski for both skiers and snowboarders.
