We Test We Know


Here at Snowtrax we believe that testing kit is the only way to ensure it's up to the task. Yes 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!

We test all equipment stock in our stores (and stacks more that we don't), giving us in depth knowledge on the latest products. There is a mass of information out on the worldwide web, but often it's a full of contradictions & differing opinions. With our experience we can help you choose the equipment that's right for you. Most of our testers work in the store & are more than happy to offer advice in person, on the phone or by email.

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.
