Snowbiking is one of the most interesting and growing Nordic activity. This sport uses a bike with ski blades instead of wheels. Shorter ski blades are worn on foot to balance the equipment and to stop or slow down the slide down the hill.

How you go down the hill will depend on how well you can maneuver the snowbike.

Anyone can actually ride the snow bike. Although on most resorts, there is a certification program that you have to complete to ensure safety. Lessons include the proper usage of the bike, areas and terrain or tracks of the mountains or snow hills, and loading, riding and unloading of chairlifts.
