There are numerous variants which make snowboarding a distinct sport altogether.

Skiing is a sport in which a person will two skies attached to each foot, unlike having just one large board. The skier shifts the balance of the body from one ski to the other.

The rules of this sport are simple but require a lot of practice and the skill of balancing your body weight, this can be most difficult when beginners pick up speed but once you have gotten the hang of it you will fall in love with this sport. The skill and mastery can only be achieved by practice, as the saying goes practice makes perfect. The act of balancing the weight of the body varies from one slope to the other slope, as the steepness of the slope increases the speed of the boarder and hence the act of balancing varies.

The first style is known as free style which is done by very experienced boarders as they show off their balancing tricks by jumping, spinning and carrying out other developed tricks.
