It’s Snowing. You Say Can’t Skate? Time to Shred on a Snow Skate!

It’s Snowing. You Say Can’t Skate? Time to Shred on a Snow Skate!

Phil Smage takes flight!

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!
