From ski boards to snowshoes, Kidzworld checks out winter sports gear you may not have tried out before.

Winter Sports - Skiboards

What do you get when you cross a pair of skis with a snowboard? Skiboards, of course. Skiboards are perfect for pulling off many of the tricks and stunts that you can do on snowboards. Shorter skiboards have twin tips, can be used without poles and are best for freestyle riding and halfpipe tricks. Longer skiboards are a little bit wider in the middle and best suited for carving and big jumps. For more info on skiboards, head to www.skiboards.com.

Winter Sports - Snowskates

Snowskates are basically skateboards that can be used in the snow. A snowskate has a similar size and design as a skateboard and is ridden without bindings. They're perfect for riding rails or popping ollies during the winter. The other advantages of snowskates are that they're much cheaper than a snowboard and you use them anywhere that has snow - so you won't have to pay for a lift ticket to start riding.

Winter Sports - Snowshoes

Snowshoes are one of the oldest methods of getting through the snow and have been around for over 6,000 years. It's a great winter sport and is fun way of getting exercise and making your way through winter conditions. Today's snowshoes and bindings are way easier to use than the large and wide snowshoes of the past. Modern materials and designs cut down on weight and provide much better traction and control. Snowshoes now come in all kinds of different sizes, shapes, colors and designs. If you're just learning to snowshoe, your best bet is to try out a pair of all-purpose recreation snowshoes.

IS IT A SPORT  usually cheerleading and dancing aren't considered sports because it doesn't look like everyother sport but we put in just as much effort as the varsity football players so we deserve the same respect as a football player would get.
