The snowbike experience was great. I will recommend it to all my friends and family. Mike did a great job teaching me how to enjoy the Durango slopes.

My daughter and I are avid skiers, and tried this for the first time. Mike (Sparky) was a fantastic teacher and had us up and running in no time, and we had a blast! We were giggling and squealing down many of the runs! I definitely recommend it!

Went to Purgatory with some avid skiing friends, and because it's been 30 years since I was on skis - took a ski lesson the first day. Short story: after 2.5 hours my legs were Jello and I was a sweating, panting mess - completely done for the day. The next day I met Mike and Donna and was introduced... More

I have been snowbiking for several years now, but I learned I had to be certified to take the bike on the ski lifts. It was wonderful getting to ride and learn with Donna, she is a fantastic instructor and also taught me about the mountains there. I hope I can become certified to teach snowbiking.

Went for a ski trip and found the mountain had ski bikes. Never been on a ski bike and was an exhilarating experience. Donna Abner is a wonderful instructor.

Great way to get in on all the fun with everyone else. Very easy to learn. Great instructors. If you ever wanted to go skiing but didn't think you could do it, you should try the Durango Snowbike Experience.

This was our first trip to Purgatory resort so we wanted to try everything. The snow bikes were so much fun. Our instructor, Mike, aka "Sparky" was excellent. He put our safety first which is very important when you have kids. He taught us in a very informative yet fun way. We were all confident in the skill set learned... More

I took the snow bike class on 2/23/15 with three friends in the middle of a blizzard! Purgatory had received over 20 inches of snow in the previous 24 hours, on their way to over 30 inches in a 48 hour span. We were part of a class of 7 with Donna and Tom that Monday morning, and the snow... More
