As the name suggests, snowskate is a combination of snowboarding and skateboarding. Snowskate has fundamentally been around since the 1990s. The concept allows the skater to perform skateboarding tricks in a snow environment. The boards are small, like a skateboard, and lack the foot bindings you would usually associate with snowboards. There is some debate over the best way to snowskate. Some people use effectively a skateboard without wheels, while others have smaller skis fitted under the board to allow for better movement over the snow. .
