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 skate board like tricks. In the powder the feeling is like surfing.

 

How Do You Stay On It?

As I tell most people "gravity, it's been around a lot longer than bindings".  With the proper foot wear and grip you'd be surprised how well you can stay on.

 

What Type Of Shoes Do You Wear?

Anything with a flat bottom, no heel. Winter/waterproof skate shoes seem to work the best for us, but some people choose to wear their snowboard boots.

 

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.
