There's been a long-running debate over the years - skiing vs snowboarding. Both sports are packed with adventure and are great fun for everyone of all ages and abilities. However, a recent study has revealed that when it comes to enjoyment regarding snow fueled adrenaline on the slopes, skiers are likely to enjoy their sports more than snowboarders.
The survey polled 279 people of all ages to find out which sport had the highest enjoyment rate - 45% were skiers, 40% were snowboarders and the remaining 15% enjoyed both sports. It was also revealed that even a one-off short Winter break was effective in boosting the natural endorphins.
The study showed that skiers rate their happiness levels on average five times higher than that of the snowboarder. The potential reason why this is could be because they are more immersed in their activity when travelling down the powdered slopes; the use of ski poles could be an added advantage.
