Ski vs Snowboard   

'Ski is easier to start with and harder to master ; snowboard is harder to start with and easier to master"
This is what I've heard from different friends since I'm in Japan. I don't know to what extent it's true, but what I'm sure of is that my bottom is happier with ski!
About a year ago, for Christmas, I was jumping on a snowboard for the first time and I must say that I spent more time in the snow than on the board at the time! After one day using my poor little bum as a pillow, it took me a good week to sit down normally again. This year I tried ski for the first time and my bottom stayed quite happily safe and sounds!
Mind me, what makes me like ski better than snowboard so far is not the safety of my bum actually but the fact that I could master how to stop faster than when I was on a board. Though I still think that snowboard is way cooler!

I came to think about these experiences as challenges and this is what I've been wondering since : Do I prefer to try something easy to start with and harder to master or the opposite? That is a good question indeed... I gotta think about it! What about you guys? What would you rather go for? Easy start, harder mastering or easy mastering, harder start?

Until next time at the cafe!
