You might be asking yourself, WTF are Snow Skates? Not to be confused with a “Snowskate” singular, which is essentially a mini snowboard bolted to a skateboard deck. Snow Skates are a boot shaped apparatus with a smooth mini-sled type surface on the bottom of it meant for gliding down a groomed piste.
Thought to have been originally conceived by the Dutch as long ago as 1865, Snow Skates came onto the scene in a more modern form in Switzerland in the 70’s. But it was not until the 90’s that they would be branded and sold commercially.
Founded by two roommates via a kickstarter campaign, and quickly spreading around the World, Snowfeet are the new kids on the block for the Snow Skate scene.
Snowfeet are much more versatile than their predecessors and are designed to be an accessory to your normal snowboarding or ski boots as opposed to a replacement.
