The two sports skiing and snowboarding have many differences and even more similarities. Let’s start with the similarities. They both include balance, snow, hills, and special equipment. They both get played in the Olympics. People get paid for competing in both. They both need glasses, helmets, and special pants.
Now the differences. Usually snowboards are more decorative than skis. Snowboarding includes a board and skiing includes skis. Snowboarding usually has less obstacles than skiing. Snowboarding is more dangerous than skiing because the snowboarder’s legs can’t be separated to regain balance. Skiing has bigger hills, and usually snowboarding is like a skateboard ramp.
