Welcome to our SkiBike Association Website. All things SkiBike are here in this forum.
The ‘20-’21 season was better than we expected! We are finishing a season we were not even sure would happen this year! Thankfully were able to do a bunch of rally events instead of our traditional festivals. The turnouts were great and the enthusiasm was at pace with our best years
It is that time of year when we are asking you to renew your memberships. Please continue to support our efforts to get universal SkiBike access to Ski Resorts across North America. Your annual donation supports our outreach and educational efforts to enlighten the winter sports industry about our sport. Membership Page
SkiBikes are bicycle like devices engineered with skis instead of wheels to use the force of gravity to descend the slopes. They are catching on in popularity and are a great alternative to traditional skiing or snowboarding. Three types of SkiBiking.
Just like skiing or snowboarding; by using pressuring and edging to control the ski boards and skidding the skis across the hill or turning slightly uphill to stop. Videos
It is a much more balanced workout than skiing or snowboarding. You have the ability to sit or stand depending on the bike style and there is much less stress on your legs, knees, and back. The fatigue factor is considerably less.
Due to their stable design, the learning curve is faster than skiing or snowboarding. Generally, within a few runs, you will master the basics and be progressing and enjoying your ride in no time. Able and disabled riders alike enjoy SkiBikes. Adaptive Programs for skiers with disabilities have used SkiBikes for decades. Many resorts now offer SkiBike lessons - ask your local resort’s Ski School, or contact the ASA for info. Videos
Not yet. We are working with trade organizations and fighting hard to get all ski areas to allow riding. Just like snowboarding in the 1980's it is a new method to slide down the mountain and the resorts are gradually learning that it is safe and a fun alternative to skiing and snowboarding. The American SkiBike Association keeps a comprehensive list of the growing list of ski areas that allow riding. Click on "Where to SkiBike.." at the top of this page.
It is easier than you think! SkiBikes are not as heavy as a mountain bike. Depending on the style of bike, you carry the bike on the chairlift with you. Manufacturers have specific recommendations, but with most, you simply rest it either on your lap or at your side. You get in the lift line as normal and approach and exit the chair on foot or with footskis as you would skiing. Always check with the ski area and manufacturer for their specific loading guidelines because it may vary at each area.
