Sled Dogs Snowskates

Snowskates is exactly what it sounds like, in a nutshell snowskates is; "SKATES that you can use on SNOW"! Plain and simple! Anyone who knows how to use iceskates or inlines, knows how to use Sled Dogs snowskates.

They are improving the skates, it will be available soon.

To be a bit on the technical side; Sled Dogs is the world`s first patented snowskate, and is a comfortable, light boot, with an intergrated unique base/ski with steel edges for a maximum control. The base/ski is fixed to the boot. Snowskates combine the freedom and agressive movements from inline skates and ice skates, with the freedom and challenge of slalom and snowboarding.

Snowskates are easy and fast to learn, and extremely compact. All you need is a pair of snowskates, no skis or poles (or ski lifts for that matter), just some snow. You can skate on pavements, in parking lots, streets, and even down stairs. Not to mention in the garden, down hills, in the woods, and of course on the slopes. What they are trying to say here is; with Sled Dogs snowskates, you can skate anywhere there is snow!


Sled Dogs was invented in Switzerland by Hanes Jacob, and they have brought the original snowskates to Norway. Today Sled Dogs© are the world`s only genuine snowskates.


You must exercise good judgement and common sense when using Sled Dogs snow skates. Sled Dogs can not be liable for injuries or damages arising from the dangers and risks inherent in the sport. Your safety and the safety of others depend upon your cautious and prudent use of your Sled Dogs snowskates.
