We are a family of skiers and snowboarders. In discussing which sport to teach our children first we keeping coming up with merits for both. Our intention is to eventually teach both sports and let the kids decide which they like best.
Is there an advantage to teaching one or the other first? Would an experienced skier have an easier time learning snowboarding, or vice versa?
Would this possibly vary by age, particularly for young children (starting as young as is practical)?
