I loved learning how to snowbike at Durango Mountain Resort. Donna and Sarah were great instructors and it was fantastic to see how quickly you can learn to snowbike and be at the top of the mountain! No bunny hills for this group!

Being a skier, I was doubtful that I could enjoy a snowbike. I was totally wrong! Mike and Donna who run the snowbike experience at Durango Mountain Resort were outstanding instructors. Their "custom" approach, guidance and personal escort on the run down the mountain were...More
