Drift boards combine elements of snowshoes and touring skis into a completely new tool for moving through snow. Handmade in Utah from carbon fiber and CNC aluminum, Drift boards are smaller, lighter, and more agile than skis while being faster and more efficient than snowshoes. Like a snowshoe, they are wide enough to stay atop the snow. Unlike snowshoes, the Drifts are able to slide forward on the snow like a ski. Permanent climbing skins on the bottom of the boards allow them to glide forward on the snow while maintaining grip while climbing. The patented Drift boards work with any type of soft boot and weigh only 5 pounds. They fit in backcountry skin tracks and are excellent at breaking trail in deep powder. This tool is ideal for anyone who wants to move efficiently through snow, but they are uniquely suited to backcountry snowboarders, allowing them to climb with the weight of their board on their back instead of on your feet.
