I've ridden a snow skate at Heavenly - liftees let me on, no problem. They are harder to ride than a snowboard, but you wear a leash with them, so it's not any more dangerous than a snowboard in the wrong hands. Bottom line, for most people, snow skates really don't take advantage of intermediate to advanced terrain, so it's kind of a waste of a day/ticket riding them at a decent mtn resort...but maybe your son is one of the few that can really rip on one.
