If you’re sick of that tedious drive to the mountains and persevering through long lift lines, then check out the LEIF eSnowboard. Born in New York City, this thing looks like an electric skateboard, but acts like a snowboard, sliding past the standard skate turns and into powerslides as if you were putting your snowboard on edge.

The eSnowboard was built by snowboarders for snowboarders, which means it’s not your typical motorized skateboard. It cruises at 20 miles per hour and can ride sideways, forwards, backwards, or in any direction you pivot your feet. To stop, twist to your toe or heel and the wheels slow the board down just like metal edges do on the slopes. 

With Lithium-Ion batteries that take 60 minutes to charge and provide a range of eight miles, it's a solid candidate for you to shred to work and show up for your first meeting with one hand shaking the Shaka.
