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.

    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.

    The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
