Skiboards

Skiboards are a cross between skis and skates...
Skiboards... no ski poles required...
As a thrift store junkie, I love the thrill of a unique find. My latest discovery is this pair of skiboards.

Skiboards are just what they look like... short skis which are a cross between skates and traditional skis. My Googe research tells me they originated in Europe, where mountaineers would strap them to their boots as a quicker way to descend snow-covered mountains. They are now their own "thing", distinct from skiing.

It took me awhile to figure out the bindings, but thanks to the Internet and some experimenting on my part I figured out how to get my current ski boots into them. I'm going to put them to use during our upcoming ski weekend. I will update this blog post with the results of my experiences.
