Welcome to the Snowskate Wiki

Snowskating can be thought of as a hybrid sport combining elements of skateboarding, snowboarding, and surfing. Snowskates come in many variations each geared towards different winter environments. There are four primary types of snowskates: Single Deck, Bideck, Powderskate, and Powdersurfer.

Notice! Work In Progress!

This wiki is still a work in progress. Coming soon will be a full product listing page, an event listing page, and other various items.

More about Snowskate types

Single Decks:

Single deck snowskates are designed for urban environments and performing skateboard-like tricks. Single deck snowskates are generally made of wood and/or plastic with a laminated base in some cases. The shape of the snowskate is similar to a large skateboard deck, but the base of the deck has cut grooves to track properly in snow conditions.

Bidecks:

Bideck snowskates are designed for mountain environments and can be used at select mountain resorts. Bideck snowskates are generally made of wood and metal materials, with a ski-like base. Bideck's have a top deck and a lower ski connected by a truck structure. The top deck is similar in shape to a skateboard deck while the lower ski is similar in shape to a miniaturized snowboard. The trucks connect the top deck to the lower ski, and combined the snowskate is able to turn and carve much like a snowboard.

Powderskates:

Powderskates are designed for mountain areas where a fresh layer of powder is present. Powderskates are a variant of the Bideck with similar material construction. Powderskates have a top deck and a lower ski connected by a truck structure. The top deck is similar in shape to a skateboard deck while the lower ski is directional and elongated for use in powder. Since the setup is so similar to Bideck snowskates, they may be allowed at select mountain resorts.

Powdersurfers:

Powdersurfers are designed for ungroomed mountain areas where a fresh layer of powder is present. Powdersurfers are a single deck board shaped much like a small surfboard. They are generally made of solid wood with a flat, waxable base. With enough powder this type of snowskate is able to carve and turn through the snow.
