KILLINGTON—Killington Resort just became the only Vermont ski resort to offer ski biking, for experts and beginners alike. Also referred to as snow-bikes, ski bike rentals are available at the Killington Snowshed base area.
“Killington partnered with the legendary and locally-based Alpine Bike Works to bring this thrilling combination of skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking to the resort,” said Tracy Taylor, business development manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “Ski biking gives those who love to bike the opportunity to try it out on the snow.”
“A ski bike is a bike frame with skis on the bottom in place of bike wheels, boots with mini-skis on your feet, and an amazing way to experience the exhilaration of sliding down the mountain with the flow of snowboarding and control of mountain biking,” said Anthony Accurso of Alpine Bike Works. “We’ve put together packages specifically for first timers to include everything they will need from rentals, a ski bike access ticket, and instruction.”
Killington Ski Bikes operates Friday through Sunday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be open every day during holiday weeks. Ski biking is permitted on the Snowshed and Ramshead mountain areas, which provide optimal beginner to intermediate conditions.
This winter, expect to see more of these snow bikes flying down the trails off Snowshed and Ramshead at Killington Resort.
