Single deck snowskates are designed for urban environments and performing skateboard-like tricks. Single deck snowskates are generally made of wood and/or plastic with a laminated base in some cases. The shape of the snowskate is similar to a large skateboard deck, but the base of the deck has cut grooves to track properly in snow conditions.
Bideck snowskates are designed for mountain environments and can be used at select mountain resorts. Bideck's have a top deck and a lower ski connected by a truck structure. The top deck is similar in shape to a skateboard deck while the lower ski is similar in shape to a miniaturized snowboard. The trucks connect the top deck to the lower ski, and combined the snowskate is able to turn and carve much like a snowboard.
Powdersurfers are designed for ungroomed mountain areas where a fresh layer of powder is present. Powdersurfers are a single deck board shaped much like a small surfboard.
