We have just finished picking our jaws off the floor after watching this team video from Ambition Snowskates. We used to think of snowskating as a novelty that people passed bad weather days with in 2001. No more. This is legit. Bow down.
We figured there might be some sort of mild resurgence of snowskating when we saw this video back in spring of Alan Gerlach making his snowskate sing. That was on one of the ones with the snowblade thing on the base, but these guys from Ambition Snowskates appear to have made a ski-less version that manages to get the grip on the topsheet and base spot on for essentially making a full-on legit skateboard for snow.
Flip on, flip off, back lips, gnarly transfers… the litmus test of snowboard shots is often ‘if skateboarders could do it then it’s not proper enough for snowboarding’. Now we can add snowskating to that quality control. Awesome.
