Mountains from California to Ontario are still getting snow. Mammoth Mountain in California just had a foot of snow in late May, and says it will be open at least July 4th. We don’t know if it’s climate change, probably is, but even though it’s Bad for Skateboarding, it’s great for Snowskating!
Check out this video of our homies poaching some runs at Blue Mountain, Ontario’s largest “mountain” resort who still hasn’t opened up their lifts to snowskaters. Hopefully soon all resorts will turn to the dark side like Lakeridge our original home. Scroll down for a list of mountains that DO allow snowskating.
Here is a list of where to snowskate in Ontario so far. (At least where you can get on the lifts;)
- Batawa (surface lifts)
- Boler (with a strap)
- Dagmar Ski Resort (with a strap)
- Mt Evergreen Ski Area Kamiskotia (with a strap)
- Mansfield Pembroke Sir Sam’s Ski and Bike Ski
Hope to see more folks on the hills next season be sure to pick up all your snowskate gear at Longboard Haven, who has been voted Toronto’s #1 skate shop 5 years in a row by Now Magazine.

This past March the Concrete Wave Magazine crew went out to Sutton Fyre Snowskate Festival. It was everything we wanted it to be, and nothing like we expected it to be. The Concrete Wave team and a bunch of Ontario legends went on a crazy adventure to the land of Bagels and Poutine! The three day Trip was filled with friends, food, some let downs, and fun times. #suttonfyrefestival

Today’s forecast in Toronto is SNOW…followed by more SNOW. The question what the hell are you going to do about it?
Four years ago I published this magazine.
Published in the winter of 2014, this magazine was ahead of its time. The time to get out there and ride is NOW!
The truth is that sometimes it takes a while for the future to catch up with the present. I am delighted to see that progressive snow resorts like Lakeridge are allowing snowskaters. Tonight a gang from my local skate shop, Longboard Haven are heading out to the hills. As with longboarding back in the day, it’s always rad to hit double digits of riders. This time, I expect dozens of snow skaters to hit the slopes and the stoke level will be at level 5. Kudos to Rob and Chicken for making things happen.

There are of course a number of hotspots for snow skating. Lake Tahoe has had a raging scene for quite some time. But for many skaters, the idea of snowskating is still fairly new. The fact is that snowskating turns a molehill into a mountain. Summer is coming soon, but before that time, we’ve got at least another few months of snow. So get out there and ride!
