Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is it hard to learn how to ride a Snowbike®?
A: No! It's easy to learn and fun to ride! While some activities on the mountain require a little more effort, this requires a little less than others. That being said all mountain activities take place at high altitude. Make certain you are healthy enough for physical activity in a thin air environment. In preparation for your high altitude adventure make sure you are well rested and hydrated.
