ProjectSnowskate.com was created by Kendra Wilson in order to increase awareness about snowskating and develop a community of snowskaters dedicated to progressing the sport. Kendra is an international business professional living in Reno, Nevada. She contributes content related to snow sports to TheSkiChannel, Mountain Rider’s Alliance, and Komunity.com.
Snowskating is a relatively young snow sport. The idea is to ride a skateboard-shaped deck with a small ski (sub-deck) attached with snowskate specific trucks. Snowskates do not include bindings. A leash is used to ensure that the skate does not get away from the rider. (Click here for a snowskate anatomy lesson.) Because this is such a new and unfamiliar sport, many ski resorts do not allow snowskates. ProjectSnowskate’s goal is to change that.
Please feel welcome to use this space to ask questions about snowskating, provide relevant snowskating information, or offer suggestions on actions to take or people to contact regarding progression of the sport.
