For years, skateboarders have asked themselves how to practice their skills during winter without having to strap themselves to a snowboard. While there are interior skateparks around the world, their limited space, schedules and distance often complicate things for skaters who just wanna ride around and practice their tricks for a few hours between November and May.
That’s where snowskating comes in to change the game! It lets riders to perform the majority of tricks and slides they’re used to doing on concrete, without the need for dry ground. Even better, once you have your snowskate, the whole city becomes a playground. By moving and stacking snow, riders can even try tricks on spots that only exist during winter. Banff locals and tourists alike will be able to give snowskating a try during BARBEGAZI Banff, which takes place January 17-26, 2020.
