What Sparky and Donna don't tell you: Caution!!!!!!, this can lead to another toy on the roof rack heading up to the mountain! As a ski instructor professional I always seek to find ways for all my clients to enjoy the mountain. For those that don't or can't take to skiing or boarding but desire to spend time with freinds...

I can count the number of times I've been on skis or a snowboard on one hand and it was all after 20 years of age. For the last 15 years I've been stuck at the bottom of the mountains while my family has skied and snowboarded due to a knee that was first bad and then reconstructed. I am... More

My wife and I are in our 50s and don't ski or snowboard but our kids do. Learning to snow bike and getting certified allowed us to enjoy the slopes with our kids, and is much easier on our old joints and muscles. Make sure the guys wax your snow bikes' skis when you get outfitted. Keep in mind that... More

I am so grateful I have found an alternative to sking. Snowbiking allows me to continue to enjoy the fun and thrills of Everything skiing had offered. I have an injury that now prevents me from sking but snowbiking is just as fun. Any hesitation and fear I had learning to snowbike disappeared after my lessons with Donna and Mike-... More

I skied for nearly 40 years and quit a few years ago due to bad knees and hips. I decided to take a snow bike lesson at Purgatory and am so glad I did. The learning curve is really short (if you have skiing experience) and I loved every minute of it. I rented the bike the next day and... More

We took ski lessons at Purg last year and my husband (after 4 knee surgeries) didn't really fall in love with it! Someone told us about snow biking and we decided to try it. We both took lessons with Mike Sparkman and it was fantastic. Mike was patient and full of information and tips about how to have a great... More

We haven't skied in years, ever since we found snow bikes. Mike handled everything for us, and gave lessons to friends snow biking for the first time. We were intermediate skiers, at best, as we only make one trip a year. In a few hours you will be on trails you wouldn't have taken on skies or a snowboard. We... More

My husband loved Snowbiking. He had a lesson in the morning and got certified. He then spent rest of day hanging with the other guys he met on the slopes! Love every minute!
