Snowblades Hire from Bansko Ski Shop ( Ski and Board Traventuria)

The snowblades we offer in our stores – both Ski & Board Traventuria in Bansko and in Borovets, are with a length of 90 cm from brands Elan and Salomon. You can check the prices online and easily make a reservation through the booking form. If you have more questions regarding the ski blades, contact us.

Snowboard was their first name, until Salomon presented their brand as snow blades. Today they are known by several different names – skiboards, short skis or ski blades. Sizes vary from 99 cm, 90 cm to 75 cm. Some popular models are – Elan, Five forty, Salomon. Because of the compact size, turning and stopping is much easier (a bonus for the beginner skiers). That’s the main reason why learning to control them takes less effort, plus it’s a great deal more comfortable to carry them around.

One common element you’ll find in snowblades is twin tips. Skis with twin tips have matching curves in the front and the back of the skis. This gives the rider a lot more versatility. They allow the skier to turn a bit easier without feeling as locked in as they might with traditional skis. Twin tips also make it a breeze to land or to ski backwards. Not all snowblades have twin tips, but it’s just very common. Twin tips can also be found in some regular skis. Riding short skis gives you a sense of greater liberation and makes you feel more confident compared to the traditional skis or snowboard. The blades have that skate-like feel and are a nice way to enjoy your time in the mountains. 

Try this alternative experience for a day or two and if it is not your thing, you can always switch them for a board or longer skis.
