Airboard FAQ

What is Airboarding?

Airboarders ride a "board" made of light and extremely durable high-quality plastic covered textiles. Athletes steer by shifting their weight and brake by just turning the airboard at a 90° angle to the desired downhill direction. Airboarding requires no previous experience and is super easy to pick up. The sleds are easy to turn, and you have a cushy landing on your sled!

How safe is airboarding?

Airboarding was invented as a safer alternative to skiing and boarding. The control you have over the board, combined with its easy maneuverability, allow the rider a fast safe and fun way to carve down the mountain.

HISTORY

In 1990, A Swiss engineer, Joe Steiner, created the airboard after he had suffered a knee injury. He wanted a way to stay active and still be able to carve his way down a slope like he did with his snowboard. So he created this blow-up "sled" that was equipped with runners and handles. It quickly turned into a popular winter sport. It had its debut in the US in 2004

Everyone at Montage Mountain who uses an airboard will need an airboard licence. First time riders are taken through a mandatory safety/skill seminar, where they learn just how easy it is to airboard.

Once licensed, riders can ride anytime sessions are offered that season.
