Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between Snowbikes & Pegbikes?

Snowbiking offers increased comfort, control, and stability while cruising down the slopes! This is a great alternative to traditional skiing or snowboard. The bike is designed to be ridden while sitting down with short skis attached to your feet for speed and direction control.

Pegbikes are an adventurous way to experience the slopes. The bike is ridden by standing up on stationary pedals, the peg part of pegbike. Riders use the front ski and their upper body to control direction and momentum much like mountain biking! This is a great option for those with a cycling or dirt biking background
