Ride the elevator with Ben Bateman, co-founder of Snoogee Boards.
Snoogee is the first sled of its kind available worldwide. The board allows you to experience the performance of snowboarding with the accessibility of sledding.
Hailed as the world’s ultimate carving sled, Snoogee is on Kickstarter until March 21, and is the brainchild of two Australians—my brother, Michael, and I.
The board takes the edge control of a snowboard and the functionality of a bodyboard, and not only bridges the gap, but creates a whole new category. It’s the only sled that turns and stops on its edges, is capable of both resort run and urban sledding, and riders can do more than lay down—they can sit, kneel, or stand. The board is also engineered to perfection, providing the responsiveness and comfort needed to land large jumps.
With accessibility top of mind, the Snoogee Board is intended for use by all ages and skill levels, with particular interest from those with disabilities. But the board is no easy ride. The Snoogee is not only great for sledding beginners, but experienced boarders as well as versatile action sport enthusiasts. It’s the hottest new piece of gear set that provides adrenaline junkies with the ultimate snow fix.
