How do you ride a snow scoot?

Snow scoot is the combination of a freestyle scooter and snowboard. As with skis or snowboards you steer and manage speed by turning the handle bar and shifting your weight, allowing the skis edges to carve a smooth line.

How do you stop?

You can slow down and stop by dragging one foot or carve a line as you would while skiing or snowboarding. You can also stop the snowpark scooter quickly by sliding the rear board outwards on its uphill edge.

How do you get on and off a chairlift?

Ensure your leash is secured to your leg or ankle. When the chair lift approaches, position the scooter directly in front of you. As the lift lifts you up, allow the handle bars rest on your lap and let the scooter hang below you. Cross your legs and ankles around the front of the Snowscoot and enjoy the ride. The snowpark scooter is small and light enough that you may also take it on your lap.

What kind of shoes do you wear?

Since there are no bindings, the scooter can be ridden with hiking boots or soft snowboard boots.

How to control speed, brake and stop?

As the feet are not strapped onto the deck you can always put your feet down. The best way is to do like skiers and snowboarders do. Carve and stop.
