Frequently Asked Questions

What's A Snowskate?

A snowskate is a cross between a skateboard and snowboard. It looks a lot like a skateboard but instead of wheels it has a “ski”.  There are different size top decks and different size “skis” for conditions and personal preferences. The feel of carving is much like cruising on a longboard or snowboard but with the ability/freedom to move your feet and do skateboard like tricks. In the powder the feeling is like surfing.

What Type Of Shoes Do You Wear?

Anything warm and waterproof with a flat bottom, no heel. Winter skate shoes or hiking boots seem to work the best for us.

Where can you ride them?

Where can't you ride them!  Now if you want lift access that's a bit different. They are accepted on many resorts across North America, and more every year.  Once you get the hang of it you can ride down any run, just like you would skiing or snowboarding. One of the great things about snowskating is you don't need much snow to use them. They can be a lot of fun anywhere that has snow, like your backyard or local skate park.
