    About the same.

    You generally use the same muscle groups (quads, hammies, lower back, core)

    It depends more on your skill level, terrain and snow conditions than discipline.

    really is about the same but snowboarding takes a little more work... you have to sit down and get up over and over again to strap in and that alone adds a little more work to the job... and having your feet immobilized makes you use more of your core muscles.. I've been on slopes since I was 4.... Skiing at first.... then switched to a board around 13 or 14 and will NEVER go back...

    I voted skiing.
    First I work my legs climbing up to the lodge wearing monster weight boots.
    After that, I work my core skating through the flat spots dragging snowboard friends with my ski poles listening to Survivor's Gonna Fly Now on my ipod :D

    either will work -- just go get yourself buried in backcountry canyon and then dig your way out through chest-deep powder. that's how you burn calories!

    ask me how i know. :rolleyes:

    It is all a direct affect on the amount of energy used not whether you "Ski" or "Snowboard."

    Neither one is better then the other, it depends on the individual and how hard they ski/snowboard.

    I'm thinking skiing. I have no evidence to back this up but I always seem to be more tired after skiing than snowboarding. I'm much better with skiis though so I probably push the limits a lot more.

    I use my leg resistance when snowboarding. It takes more out of me than skiing, but I'm a better skier so that probably has a lot to do with it. Either one is a great fat burner though.
