Went for a ski trip and found the mountain had ski bikes. Never been on a ski bike and was an exhilarating experience. Donna Abner is a wonderful instructor.

Great way to get in on all the fun with everyone else. Very easy to learn. Great instructors. If you ever wanted to go skiing but didn't think you could do it, you should try the Durango Snowbike Experience.
