Article Summary:At the Winter 2005 Outdoor Retailer show we began to report about a product from a small company called Shoeboard. In 2006 they refined their snowshoe-ski system reducing its weight substantially. Our curiosity remained piqued. After all, we were eagerly looking forward to having a product that would let us easily snowshoe up a hill and then ski back down. While you cannot ski or snowboard down a hill as gracefully you will be far better off than someone descending on snowshoes. While we were interested we hoped for more refinements that would improve the overall aesthetics of the design which would in turn reduce the overall weight even more. Now at the 2007 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market our expressed hopes in 2006 seem to be about to be realized.
