Airboard – inflatable ultra fun in the snow

Image

Airboards are an inflatable and lightweight sled for those hard-to-reach peaks. Designed and perfected in the Swiss Alps, they combine traditional sleds, with an inflatable body for ultimate fun. The hard base and runners give you fast response and a very fast ride, while the padded body irons out the painful bits. The airboards come with a hand pump and a carry bag and they can be inflated in about 3 minutes. There is a range of models and prices and sellers can be found through Europe, North America and Asia Pacific. Prices from $US280 with a review of the Airboard here.

For sliding on backcountry ungroomed terrain, ski slopes and terrain parks. This multi-purpose Airboard offers a great slalom style ride. Quick and easy turning on those uneven slopes! Great for catching some air too! If you suffer from back and knee problems and are unable to ski, snowboard, short ski or any snow sport requiring you to stand up with bent knees enduring high-impact landings, Airboard may be the answer for you to get back out on the slopes!
