@ STL: I've heard it's pretty depressing, but I still am going to check it out. Don't worry, I won't let it color MO for me! (what up WUSTL!) I also rented Secretariat so if we're too down we can watch that afterward? Haha, I rode horses for 12 years so I fig I am allowed to rent any Disney horse-related movie...
Hey, I come from what used to be the meth capital of the world (Des Moines, Iowa, FTW) until Chicago (I think) took it over. I can vouch that STLers aren't all metheads, just a few.
Metheads could be misconstrued for meatheads at a glance. That gets confusing.

IMO, skiing is a lot easier to start. Snowboarding is a lot easier once you get it down.
TITCR. Although, once you know the tool (wood plank on snow), translating it to other motions is much easier. I would say, for your sake, go with snowboarding. It's more fun, and it will be easier to find people you enjoy to ride with... And they (typically) aren't as hardcore or douchey about the sport.
Assuming you are asking me how they are douchey... The ones I know just have a more pompous, east coasty, holier-than-thou attitude. I may be off base, but this includes both ones I've met in the Northwest AND the ones I've met in Colorado. I'm an uber-socializer, so I've met quite a few... So my population is most likely representative.
Then again, maybe I just rub skiiers the wrong way. Entirely possible.
