Vail Mountain’s Adventure Ridge offers numerous non-traditional activities on the ski hill, including Ski Biking. Part sledding, part skiing, part biking and all fun. Worried all those parts will make this new mode of downhill transportation hard to learn? It’s easy to learn and considered by some to be the ultimate snow toy. You’ll get mini ski blades that you strap to your boots, which you’ll use to turn and maneuver on the hill. The bike has two blades instead of wheels with a front handle bar that allows you to make turns down the hill. It is a sport unto itself, so as long as you are somewhat athletic or up for an outdoor activity, no other skills are required.
