I've always been a video guy, although you can't capture stuff outside of sports as well as you can with photography. You have to be into the video to make it worthwhile filming art/places where they're is no skiing, because those are the places that photography excells. You can still shoot that stuff with a camcorder, it just takes more vision/dedication/time to set everything.
You need to decide whether you have said vision and whether what you'd mostly be shooting. If more skiing, probs camcorder...if more artsy shit (lol) then camera...I guess
