Google can give an interesting insight into the mind of the public.

We have looked at this before on Skipedia when we considered how Google auto-complete could tell us about the industry.

This is a more prosaic example…

What is skiing?

is skiing

Dear Google user – don’t panic!  We reckon the answers are ‘maybe at first’, ‘not necessarily’, ‘yes’ and ‘yes, with time!’

What is snowboarding?

is snowboarding

Dear aspiring snowboarder – please see above for three of your answers.

But is snowboarding easier than skiing?   There are over a million results on Google – we wouldn’t dare say yes or no to this one!
