First of all, if you haven't been following our facebook page you've been missing out on a whole lot of stuff! We post videos, photos, special content on a daily basis. That's where all the fun is going on, so come on an join us!
Now this one is super simple. Simply post a photo of yourself snowskating on Facebook and tag @Ambition Snowskates on it. You have one week from now and then our team will review all photos and select a winner based on their own preferences. Don't be afraid to go creative and original!
It's december already, isn't it crazy how time flies? We figured it'd be helpful for our customers to get some shipping estimations to better plan their online ordering for christmas. We wouldn't want the snowskates to be late for the big day. So here's a little guide for you all.
QUEBEC Approximately 2 business days.
ONTARIO Approximately 2-3 business days.
REST OF CANADA Approximately 3-6 business days. The further you are from Quebec the longer.
USA Approximately 4 business days but sometimes it can take up to 7 the further you get south-west.
International Approximately 7-10 business days
Obviously December is a busy month for us and we strive to ship boards our daily, but please consider that the postal offices are also overloaded so you're better off ordering a little ahead of time because some extra delays might occur.
Plus, some boards are running low in stock and even out of stock (Team Orange) so you might want to act fast if there's a particular colorway you're interested in.
Thanks guys and feel free to e-mail us with any questions or concerns right from our contact page above.
Have an awesome winter!

It's that time of the year again; winter's right around the corner and the new Ambition Snowskates are in stock and ready to ship! It's always a delight to announce a new lineup, but even more this season as we've totally redesigned our boards from scratch.
Ambition was established in 2004, that's a decade ago for those of you who've been around long enough to remember. We've come a long way since, and we've stacked more ideas than we'll ever be able to make reality. But some of them stuck with us, and we just felt it was time to take all of them together and take snowskates to the next level.
Apart from the obvious design and colorway changes, we've looked at every aspect of our construction and improved it. A lot of it beats the eye, but underneath it's truly a completely new board. This is by far the year we introduce the most changes to our lineup, ever.
NEW SHAPE AND BOARD SIZE
Let's start with the best; shape and size change. We all love the good old Ambition board format, but what if you took half an inch of the lenght out, and upped the tail and nose just a little bit? Well we tried, played around with the dimensions until they were just right, and couldn't believe how much of a difference it made. The boards simply feel more energetic, requiring much less force to pop up and perform tricks with. That aside, we've modified the cut radius of our tail and nose, giving a larger "tip of the tail" area for you foot to sit comfortably on. This also gives you more scoop in the corners helping a lot on the infamous 3flips and such tricks. I am really stoked on everyone trying our new shape out, it's surely a big step forward.
We also felt the boards were a tad bit too heavy, and it had been like that since our very beginnings. One thing's for sure, we didn't want to compromise the durability of our snowskates. Well without going far into details, let's just say this new core construction is just as strong and stiff as before, but 10% lighter. I'm sure you all know what that translates too; higher ollies, easier flip tricks and overall better board control.
Sounds pretty techy, and actually it is. All of our bases are now treated with a plasma laser prior to lamination, which greatly improves the bonding strength. They were already pretty strong, but hey who doesn't want an even stronger board?
ENCAPSULATED TOP GRAPHICS
We've been playing around with different options for years now. Top screenprints wear off, top die-cuts are neat looking but don't offer very complex possibilities. Well now our new encapsulated top graphics are full-color plastified inserts that add that little extra awesomeness to your skate.
THE LITTLE KINKS
You know, details here and there that you'd like to improve on. The details that are often overlooked but crucial at the same time. Let's just say they've been taken care of. Notably an improved glue formula for the grip topsheets, improved board finishing, etc.
WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
Yes, the shop page is not yet quite complete, missing two of the best-selling premium models; The Smage and The Gerlach. We'll be adding those plus some detail pictures of the products in a few days so make sure you check back shortly!
In this once in a year opportunity, I'd also like to thank everyone that has been supportive of Ambition since the start. It's incredible how much snowskating has progressed since then and how much we've grown as a company. One thing remains, we are passion-driven like no one else and we hope it shows in everything we do. We strive yearly to offer better and improved products at an affordable cost, as well as put out the best snowskate videos out there.
Thanks to everyone, I hope you have an amazing snow-shredding season!
We very rarely have any sales going on our webshop but with winter coming in fast and a couple 2013 left in the warehouse we figured we might aswell give you all a break and make some space for the new skates coming in.
Only Red, White and Orange left. Check them out on our webshop while it lasts!
