Great news! There are new skibiker policies in place for Steamboat Ski Resort.
And they are friendlier.
Licenses are no longer required at Steamboat. Neither are checkout rides with Ski Patrol for peggers. They did a review on bikes and concluded there were no issues. I went straight to the lift on Tuesday.
Lessons and rentals
Lessons are still available through Ski School. Several places rent Brenters and Stalmach's right at the base area.
Brenter C4 and Stalmach Rocky Berg's are available through ski school. Only skibobs are available commercially for rent. Josh in Steamboat does have 7 Lenz Sport Brawlers that he rents.
Bikes are allowed in the gondola. They'll even load it inside for you. Plenty of room for a pegger to fit inside.
Still don't know if homemade or conversion kit bikes are allowed. Probably not. They aren't allowed at Winter Park and both resorts are operated by Intrawest.
I rode around the Wally World area on Tuesday. Lots of curious people and no negative comments. Downhill mountain bikers and instructors seemed the most interested.
I've skied and snowboarded at Steamboat since the late 1980's. I had blast on the bike there. It's a whole new mountain.
