Is your skateboard collecting dust in the closet cuz there's a foot of snow on the ground and your mom won't let you skate in the kitchen? Don't wait for the snow to melt - grab a snowskate.

A snowskate or snowdeck is basically a skateboard designed for the snow. There are no bindings - it's just a deck with a blade on the bottom, instead of wheels. You can pop ollies, ride rails, or slide around a parking lot - all you need is snow. Riding a snowskate is a great alternative to snowboarding if you don't have a lot of cash - cuz you don't have to buy a lift ticket or extra gear like boots and bindings.

  • Burton Snowdecks - The guys that invented snowboards started out with the Junkyard model and have now added Source, Link and Bridge to their line of Snowdecks. Burton snowskates are a double-decker style with a deck on top and a metal sub-deck underneath. Like all Burton products, these are good quality and well designed. Costs around $150 US. For more info, head to www.burton.com.

  • Salomon PP3 Snowdeck - The PP3 is the only model from Salomon. Like the Burton line, the PPS is a double-decker style. The top deck has a waterproof coating which makes it a bit more durable. But you also pay for it. The PPS costs around $200 US. For more info, head to www.salomonsnowboard.com.

  • Premier Snowskates - Premier started the snowskate craze and have several models to choose from. Unlike Burton and Salomon, Premier snowskates have only one deck with a hard plastic base that slides directly on to the snow. All their decks have great graphics and are great for your budget too. They range in price from $50 to $100 US. Find out more at www.premiersnowsk8.com.

    Several other companies that have a long history of making skateboards are now making snowskates as well - including Santa Cruz and World Industries.

    If you've tried riding a snowskate, all about it.

    Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

    I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
