We Test We Know


At Snowtrax we believe that testing equipment is the only way to make sure that it's up to the standard to be sold in our store. A ski may look awesome, or that latest snowboard has all the tech you ever dreamed of, but it's no good if it doesn't live up to the hype! 

Testing also gives our staff the kind of in depth knowledge that is only possible through time on the snow, pushing the skis & snowboards through different kinds riding styles and terrains to see how they perform. It's this knowledge that allows our shop team to accurately recommend skis or snowboards based on the customers specific individual requirements. 
No one wants the catalogue recited to them when they come in store, which is why our staff learn on the mountain.  

To help cut through the sales pitch and marketing blurb, come and talk to us! Everyone in our team has spent time skiing, snowboarding, and real world testing the products. So if you want to know about ski sizing, snowboard characteristics, or how certain shapes and styles will work for you, just get in touch!

Here is a bit more about what we've been up to:


Our latest trip was on the annual SIGB ski test to Kuhtai in Austria. We had some amazing conditions & awesome powder, with some 28 brands attending the test. We had a large team of testers all working their way through over 700 pairs of skis.


Our Snowboard team’s latest venture was a 1,752 mile round trip to Kaunertal in the Austrian Alps. Re-branded as 'Spring Break', we had a good mix of shop staff, instructors, team riders and customers out on the 2018 UK Snowboard Test. With plenty of kit to test & one of the best kept parks in Europe at their disposal, the week was a real blast.

It's really important for us to test product out in the mountains as well as out on our own slope. Our staff can give you an honest and fair evaluation of what the boards ride like and also how this will suit you. Because we have our own slope at the shop, this gives us the advantage of letting you try your dream board before you part with your hard earned cash.

For the 2018 season we will be carrying demo kit from from a variety of our favourite brands. Demo kit will be available on selected nights over the season with staff on hand to give advice or alternatively drop in-store and arrange a personal demo. If you can't make it down just call one of our test team on 01202 499155 ext 2 for a friendly chat.
