Excellent experience!

Snow Biking is a wonderful alternative to those of us who do not ski well. It allowed me to be with my family on the slopes! It is easy and FUN!! Donna is awesome!!!!!!

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!

Great Experience and fun for any level of athlete. The lesson was very strait forward and covered all of the basics. My son loved the bikes and chose to ride a second day instead of skiing. This is truly a great experience and one you should take a day to try. You might get hooked!!! I know I will ride... More

I visited Durango Mountain Resort in Mar 2013 with my family for our annual ski trip. I have a knee injury that caused concern with skiing this year. So we tried snowbiking instead. The entire experience was a joy. We first took a mandatory class before hitting the slopes on our own. The instructors, Mike Sparkman(Sparky) and his wife, Donna... More

I have been a skier all my life. The last day on Durango (Purgatory) Mountain my wife wanted to try snowbikes. Being the good sport I agreed to take the class but said after the class I would get back on my skies. We signed up and had a great instructor (Donna). The lesson was not long, we recieved our...

I am not a skiier. I am not a snow person. I tend to be a beach-wine bar- snorkel-skydive thrill seeking person. So of course, I had a hint of skepticism when my boyfriend said "Let's go skiing!" Um....ok. All my worries and cares were quickly laid to rest during the snowbike experience. My instructor Mike "Sparky" Sparkman was fantastic!!!... More

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 than anyone could wish for in learning the art of the snowbike. They definitely... More

I can't describe to readers how much fun snow-biking is in just words, but Donna was the best! DMR has discovered a treasure in her and the snow-biking experience that they offer! I can't wait for my next trip down there. The snow was amazing at Purgatory and this was a great chance to do something slightly different but altogether... More

If you are one who hasn't completely felt comfortable on a pair of ski's or snowboard but want the adventure and experience of "flying" down the beautiful snow packed mountain, than the snow bike is for you! Mike and Donna were excellent instructors that helped me feel comfortable on the bike and than on top of the mountain ready for... More
