As a former snowboarder, I opted for the 65 cm Snowfeet Skiboards with snowboard bindings to help train my 3-year-old on skis. The transition was seamless, and I was pleasantly surprised by the performance. By the end of my first day, I could navigate the mountain, ski backwards, and maintain control while skiing with my daughter. A great success for both of us!
At 37 years old, 6'4", and 255 lbs, I've found the 65 cm Snowfeet ski boards with snowboard bindings to be a game-changer. Not only have they been a hit at Mt Hood in the PNW, but they've also given me the ability to assist my 3-year-old on skis with ease. Now, my wife can take a break from ski training, which has made our mountain adventures fun for everyone.
If you are primarily looking for a short ski to help train youngsters, I may recommend trying the 99 cm option. I believe that will give you a little better stability behind you to prevent falling backward. It took me one or two falls to figure out the body positioning while holding on to training ropes, but I still am very happy with the 65 cm option. I'm intrigued with the 99 cm powder ski option when they are available with snowboard bindings! Let's just say since I've purchased these skiboards, my snowboard hasn't left the truck!
Yesterday was my first full-day riding my 99 CM Snowblade Short Skis up in Big Bear, California. The experience was awesome and I highly recommend these skis! The build quality is top-notch and the 99 CM length is a perfect balance of responsive maneuverability that can also handle steeper runs and faster speeds. It was very easy to get started and I was comfortably riding the entire mountain top to bottom by the end of the day. Riding backwards was surprisingly easily which was very nice when looking back up hill to help friends/kids who are learning to ride. I'm confident that these skis will be also be great for riding with my kids while they learn and I'm looking forward to taking them on my next trip to Mammoth in a few weeks.
Received our Nordic Snowfeet about 2 weeks ago and got a chance to use them for the first time today. We purchased two sets so both my wife and I tried them. Our initial impression is very positive and we really seem to like them. We both love the size and our increase flexibility to move as we need due to the size. We were on a trail that was not groomed and look forward to the next time we get out to try them on a groomed trail.
I have ordered a pair of snowfeet two weeks ago. I was tired of skiing, so i searched for another Option. I was so lucky to find snowfeet at the Internet, because it was a hell lot of fun to ride the slopes with these amazing Variation of snow Skates. I can only highly recommend these things to everybody, who wanna try something new at the slopes.
Ordered a standard set after backing the Kickstarter (I couldn't wait). Took these on cross country and downhill. Works so well with some wax. Carving and turns came intuitively from skating. Was able to go with my daughter cross country skiing and gliding in -22 C was easy.
Even after 2km they made quick work of flat and downhill and I was amazed they even worked uphill (those metal edges are a life saver!)
They also worked surprisingly well in deep powder (even though they recommended compact snow) - I was still able to get some movement out of them.
I'm convinced that I can't go back to normal skis after this. The versatility, enjoyment, and freedom these offer is just too good.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a pair you will not regret it.
I recently purchased a pair of ski boards with snowboard boot bindings from Snowfeet and I couldn't be more thrilled with my purchase! These compact wonders have added a new dimension to my winter adventures, especially when it comes to teaching my daughter how to ski.
Design and Build Quality:
One of the first things that caught my eye was the exceptional design and build quality of these ski boards. They are compact yet sturdy, allowing for quick turns and agile movements on the slopes. The snowboard boot bindings provide a secure fit, ensuring a comfortable and responsive connection between the rider and the ski boards.
Ease of Use:
As someone who loves both skiing and snowboarding, the transition to ski boards was seamless. The snowboard boot bindings add an element of familiarity for snowboarders, making it easier for them to adapt. The learning curve is minimal, making these ski boards an excellent choice for beginners.
One of the main reasons I purchased these ski boards was to teach my daughter how to ski, and they have exceeded my expectations in this regard. The compact size allows me to stay close to her, boosting her confidence as she learns and refines her skiing skills.
Above all, these ski boards are an absolute blast to ride! The combination of their size and design adds an extra element of excitement to every run. Whether I'm cruising down the mountain or tackling a few jumps, the fun factor is undeniable.
In conclusion, my experience with these Snowfeet ski boards has been nothing short of fantastic. They are well-designed, easy to use, and versatile. If you're looking for a unique and enjoyable winter sports experience, I highly recommend giving these Snowfeet ski boards a try. They've certainly added a new level of excitement to my winter adventures!
These things are so much damn fun. I live in MN, and the skiing around the twin cities can get boring (in my opinion) compared to skiing out west. I knew, and I was totally right, that these were EXACTLY what I needed to make Midwest skiing fun as hell. I've taken them out the two weekends that ski areas have been open here so far this year, and I just bought a pair of the 65 inch Skiblades so I can try it out with slightly longer skis. Why the hell not? Life is short, so why wouldn't skis be? Learning the front to back balance they talk about adds so much more of an interesting dynamic to riding down 300 foot hills; it makes me feel like I'm going out west every weekend to ski. Sounds crazy, but who knew short skis were the ticket to pumping some life back into my ski season? THANK YOU for such a kickass, well-designed, well-manufactured product. You guys are the coolest. Keep doing what you're doing.
I’ve been looking for something like these 44cm skiskates since i started snowboarding in the late 90s. If you used to ride aggressive in-line skates or ice skates and you want that feel on the mountain, these are what you want. I am the groomer/builder at the only indoor ski slope in the United States and I’ve been using them every day! Love this idea! I would imagine the ski boots would have more control due to the extra ankle support BUT i got the snowboard bindings and i did not have any issues. Picked it up real quick.
Overall, it is a very balanced and excellent product. However, the plastic part that controls the size is quite weak. I received it with actual deformation, but I'm not going to use that part, so it's okay. In terms of weight balance, plastic seems to have been used, but durability needs to be supplemented.
It's definitely a great product in terms of design and performance
I thought my skiing days were over! Until I found Snow Feet! I have a bad knee bone on bone and did not want to give up. This was my last resort. I tried them out in Telluride Co. my first run down the slopes I was in tears I could not believe how easy Snow Feet made it! I shared this on my Facebook page and so many of my friends want to give them a try now. My Facebook is Patty Seaman! I'm overwhelmed with joy Thanks so much for changing my life!
I’m so happy with this product that I’m making a great review. I’m JB from Argentina and this is my season number 3 using snow blandes in Ushuia, the end of the world! I really recommend it! I use the Snow Skate Boot with the Snow Blade product
I got these for my Son who is always in the terrain parks shredding it up. He has ditched the regular skis for these awesome shorter snow feet! He Loves them, has more control and gets lots of compliments at the resort!
Bought the 65cm with snowboard boot bindings. I’ve only skied one other time and that was 15 years ago. Picked it up extremely quickly. I didn’t have to use poles and could take them off easily if I wanted. Super nimble on slopes, although not as fast as the other people skiing. These would be great in the parks for sure. They feel just like ice skates. I might pick up a pair of the 90cm ones so I can carve better though. These don’t have that hour glass shape to carve as well as normal skis. The build quality is awesome, especially the bindings. My snowboard friends liked those. Everyone complimented them on the slopes! Definitely worth the money.
I got 2 pairs of snowfeet I loved them so much had to get a different color. I am a roller skater and these are the perfect option for me when hitting the slopes. Thank you snowfeet for putting out the perfect product.
I bought skiskates for my niece and nephew for their birthdays- it was the best present ever!!! They were amazed at how easy, fast and fun they are!
GAME CHANGER for those looking for a more carefree alternative to traditional skiing! I’m 5’5” & 115 lbs. My long skis were SO heavy and cumbersome. I don’t like skiing fast, and my long skis were not giving me the range of motion I was wanting on the slopes. Enter: Snowfeet. I wasn’t planning on purchasing them until next ski season, but snagged them now. I’m so glad I did! They’re light weight, easy to maneuver, and offer a new freedom on the slopes. I go to the ski hill with my kids for homeschool ski, and I’ll be taking these every time. So long, long skis! Snowfeet are it 👏🏼👏🏼
I am very pleased with my ski skates. So fun and just like skating down the mountain! Definitely recommend if you want something new and exciting to try!
Had my eye on these for a wee bit debating if I could go skijoring with them. The answer is, Yes!
I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was, plus no fear of hitting by dog with the skis. My whole family gave it go and now they are all hooked.
The type of boots we wore- Columbia Bugaboot Iii Boot - they have great ankle support.
We did wax them twice and they were nice and slick.
Thank you for making this fantastic and fun product!
From Seattle,WA USA (Nordic trails at Crystal Springs Sno-Park)
Saw the skates and was just looking for a reason to get into the snow. Gave it a try, I'm hooked! Small slopes were easy, wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Spent a few hours and can't wait to go again!
I bought snowfeet skiboards because I had a pair of snowboard boots laying around. I had learned to ski as a kid but I turned 30 this year and haven’t been for 15 years, I got on these things and it’s like no time had passed! I get tons of compliments on them at the mountain. Last weekend I went to Gunstock in Gilford, NH (I’m from the east coast where it’s notoriously icy) these things handled the ice way better than expected. I feel safe and stable while riding these. I highly recommend buying them, to anyone thinking about it! Just do it! (They look cool af too)
I heard about you from instagram, my husband Ezio who is 70 years old and is still a good snowboarder fell in love with snowfeet, tried them and is very happy. This proves that they are suitable for all ages naturally used carefully. Photos of the first minutes with the snowfeet.
My daughter in law is a beginner skiier and was struggling with her new skiis.
I ordered a set of Snowfeet which arrived quickly and just in time for our family ski trip.
She tried the Snowfeet and they made a big difference in making turns and maneuvering on the slopes. She actually enjoyed coming down the Blue intermediate trails with her kids instead of being afraid of them and her confidence level has soared!
We’re so happy we bought these! They made all the difference for a winning family ski day on the slopes! My son might get a pair for his snowboard boots so he can ski when he wants to, and our other daughter-in-law wants a pink pair for skiing too now! Our family is sold on Snowfeet!
I ordered these skis to use as an adaptive cross country "scooter" with my vintage ski bike. I have been able to learn a new sport (my version of cross country skiing) and be outside during glorious winter! While I am still learning technique, the adaptive program I participate in was open to letting me use it and to see if it is something they can add as another piece of equipment to get people outside. I have instructors and together we are trying to figure out the best way to use the Nordic skis with the bike--we have found that the classic shuffle skiing is easier than skate skiing, but whatever way it is getting done and exposing able bodied people to another way to ski and allowing me some independence and a chance to ski with friends. They are working great so far, and I love being able to join others on a frozen lake or at a park. The buckles are a little hard to manage, especially when they get snow and ice in them, but luckily there is always help around! The size I think is the perfect size for this activity and I am glad they were invented! Thank you from Minneapolis, Minnesota!
Exactly what I was hoping for and expecting. This is a great product and very durable, love how it can fit my smaller shoe size (7) and it’s super easy to adjust and take off. I have been skating all my life and recently started skiing in 2020, so it was very easy to learn. Make sure you also wax the bottom for maximum fun! Thank you Snowfeet!
I normally ski on 184 cm 4FRNT Raven skis, but I wanted to give my winter routine a change. I decided to give Snowfeet a try, and right off the gate, I realized how playful it is! I grew up playing roller hockey, so this felt natural to me. I have Apex ski boots which is also a snowboard boot, so using the skiboards with my snowboard boots is a win-win.
For many years, I thought the bigger the ski, the better you are. Snowfeet proved me wrong. Size does not matter. It's how you use it.
Some people laughed at me, made fun of the size, but once they see me ripping the groomers flying past those amateurs while I spin without effort, they realize that bigger isn't always better.
It's how you use it. Snowfeet, you've reminded me what it's like to be a kid again. Thank you.
