Skiboards, also known as snowblades or short skis, have been a popular alternative to traditional skis since the late 1990s. They are shorter and wider than traditional skis, with a length ranging from 75 to 110 cm, making them more maneuverable and easier to turn. However, the question of whether or not skiboards are allowed on ski slopes is a controversial one.

Some ski resorts may require skiboarders to follow specific safety guidelines, such as wearing a helmet and staying within designated areas of the slopes. However, majority of ski resorts is open to any sort of short skis.

Snowfeet, also known as snow skates, are a newer addition to the winter sports scene. They are small and lightweight devices that attach to the user's boots, allowing them to slide down the slopes like skis or snowboards.
