" It feels just like a skateboard!" - Seth Oosthuizen:
"I've ridden a lot of snowskates and Slopedecks are definitely the most controllable"- Dylan Roberts
" This is definitely something different - just right for the urban environment" -Keith Barrens

"I had no idea it would carve so well!"- Steve Anderson
1) How does the SlopeDeck carve so well?
The arced grooves on the Morphteck base create the carving dynamic. When the edges are engaged the arced grooves dictate the radius of the turn.
2) What ages and abilities are best suited to the SlopeDeck?
Four years old to adult, any weight and skill level. The SlopeDeck is very intuitive to ride, as it has the feel of a skateboard or surfboard more than a snowboard.
3) Can I do flip tricks on the SlopeDeck?
Yes, and you will find the base and resilient spacer provide more pop.
4) Can I use the SlopeDeck at ski resorts?
Generally not - most ski areas require snowskates with metal edges.
5) Does the SlopeDeck track as well as bi-deck snowskates with metal edges?
Yes, due to the orientation of the grooves in the Morphteck base, the Slopedeck tracks like it's on rails.
6) How does the Slopedeck differ from bi-deck snowskates?
Bi-deck snowskates are much more expensive due to the separate ski and hardware needed to attach the ski to the base. They are also much heavier, higher off the snow, and more difficult to ride.
7) Do I need a leash for the deck?
If you'd like to attach one there are holes at the tip and tail for this purpose. Please contact us if you would like to buy a leash. They are $10.00.
Since Slopedecks are made by hand there may be slight cosmetic variability.
As with all winter sports, using a Slopedeck is hazardous. Always wear a helmet and exercise common sense. Stay off roads and away from cars and hard fixed objects! Use a leash as necessary.
