Sled Dog Snow Skates Review:

 

Pros:

No skis, bindings and poles to purchase.

No skis, bindings and poles to carry.

No roof rack needed and saves on gas.

No confusing flex balance, torsion rigidity or length choices to worry about.

No expensive tuneups.

No skis, bindings and poles to complicate your technique and fun.

No need to lift tip for unloading (big hassle)

No need for good aim when peeing in the woods.

No pesky offers to be skied with.

No confusing and irritating ski tips from your friends.

No ski pole up your butt from a cartwheel crash.

No garage sale to clean up.

No family clusterfuck tornado of equipment to manage.

No forgetting your skis and pole leaving the bar for home.

A good conversation starter albeit a very short one.

Always 3 feet closer to loading on the chair compared to everyone else (everyone)

 

Cons:

Being seen trying them on in the store.

Being seen with them at the cash register.

Being seen carrying them to and from your car.

Being seen putting them on in the lodge.

Being seen in the lift line wearing them.

Being seen on the chairlift wearing them.

Being seen unloading from the chair wearing them.

Being seen sliding down a slope wearing them.

Being seen doing the inevitable face plant wearing them.

Being seen on your ass waiting for ski patrol while wearing them.

Being seen riding the patrol sled wearing them.

Being seen in the med shack wearing them.

Being seen riding the ambulance wearing them

Being seen arriving at the hospital wearing them.

Being seen by the doctor wearing them.

Not being seen at the ski area for the rest of the season.


 

There an equal number of pros and cons so I am still on the fence about these. Am I missing something?

I think I know what you are getting at. All those rad helicopters, spread eagles and back ... er ... um ... butt scratchers.

Now those are what I call short.

I wonder how deep in powder you can ski them....

The Sled Dog model "K9". That is obvious but classic. Many years ago, I worked for a shop owner who ordered them against much advice. They seemed to be an obvious junk fad to me. Who's going to listen to a ski tuner anyway. He went out on the them as soon as they came in. He broke his collar bone on his first run. Since then, our shop bi-relevantly referred to sled dogs as the bone crunchers. :)
