    I've had the pleasure of doing some heli skiing, cat skiing, and patrolled for a few years at Marmot. Ski pretty good and have been sledding for several years now too.

    Sledding is hands down the more physically draining sport, especially when the snow gets deep and you get stuck on a couple of occasions. Or you help to dig out a buddy.... Skiing/snowboarding requires more agility, rhythm, athletic ability - but is not as tough on the body.

    Training program for sledding = put on full gear, take weights into shower, turn tap to luke cold, do squats till exhaustion - repeat.

    Tough to beat a clear blue sky day in the mountains, with 2' of fresh snow.

    Context is Key

    It all depends, you cannot base anything on one individual.
    I have been snowboarding for 17 years, skiing for 25 years, and if you are a die hard powder freak, who can't afford the heliskiing or cat skiing (I realize the cat skiing is much cheaper but if you are a ski bum it is probably still out of reach) then you will be hiking all of the time.
    The question is too general and in my opinion pointless.
    I love too sled, the only reason I started was to cut down on the hiking I had done as a snowboarder.
    Now I barely snowboard. Sledding is just too much fun.

    Nobody mentioned the average snowboarders are young and full of piss and vinegar,the average sledder is old and out of shape.The question is pointless but interesting.

    hahaha . when you go for a 4 day snowboarding trip your ready to go every single morning. When your on a sledding trip you can barley make it up the stairs to your hotel room after the first days over. Throwing a 500lb sled around all day is a lot hard than riding a 10lb snowboard all day. The might hurt after the day cause they fell so much but sledding you hurt cause your working everytime your riding.

    I went sledding for the first time this year..yesterday...and I'm feeling it today. My son (17) was boarding on the weekend and he feels it too, and he boards 3-4 times a week. It's about using parts of your body that don't get used everyday.
    Me...I like things that go Vroooom....

    I'm not a snowboarder but I will say that after throwing that RT1000 of SummitRics around on the trails yesterday I can't possbly see how snowboarding can be as much of a work out as that tank (sorry I meant to say "thing"). I was sweating like a pig.

    A couple of weeks ago we rode with a young lady named Nadine. She is a hard core boarder and gets out just about every weekend. She owns her own 06 summit to get her to where she wants plus she races and teaches snowboarding. After a day of sledding she told us the sledding was "For Sure" more of a work out than boarding.
    Here are a few clips that might be of interest:
    1. Last year we rode with Nadine and her Boyfriend, they rode all day side by side...I was very impressed when the climbed as well as anyone.
    Here they are riding side by side:

    2. Her is Nadine showing us how to drop a cornice:

    3. Here is Nadine doing her "First Ever" drop with a sled:
