|Cr0_Reps_Smit||you dont have to get it on edge to turn but it does take a lot of control|

yeah got same answer this weekend, when I picked my kids up there
FWIW my kid was telling me that it was pretty much a straight-line board, but with a lot of extra effort, if you got one edge up in a carve, you could get it to turn, but it was hard.

as much as everyone posted the video's out there are clearly snowboards with wheels.
For me it was partially trying to make it work. At my age I will not be taking up skateboarding nor do I have any desire to even ride one in my own driveway
This is clearly a tool designed and tested by ppl in a great training facility. This was an attempt of an average old man to try it out. Yes I might have looked goofy in a skate park if this worked but no more goofy then a 47 yr old guy learning to ride in the park on snow.
Wish it worked but again a good exercise in physics, fabrication and real life

[Q UOTE=Cr0_Reps_Smit;1739258]The actual park boards are a lot of fun, I ride them at Copper almost everyday with my campers and I've gotten way more comfortable airing out of the pump track and even dropped in the skate bowl on it the other day. I am able to turn it but it takes a lot of control to make it do what I want without losing balance.
I think having the wheels on the edges is key and it seems like the boards are actually built thicker then a normal snowboard as well as much shorter which probably makes it more maneuverable.[/QUOTE]
It's called a skateboard
