AlpineSnowboarder.com exists to promote the art and joy of carving a snowboard – that is making clean turns with no skidding, leaving only thin tracks or even trenches behind, in hardboots or softboots. We recognize that hardboots and alpine boards are the most effective tools for carving at high speed, on the steepest slopes, and on the firmest conditions, but that softboots are very capable of serious carving too. This is evidenced by the fact that all high level SL/GS racing is done in hardboots. We welcome all carvers and those soon to be, and we hope you’ll give hardboots a try!
