Vail Resorts allows skibikes and skibobs at all their resorts in the USA. While some try to imply otherwise, this is far from the truth. Recently, even local Colorado reporters have been duped by these individuals.
Do not believe a December 2015 article in the Summit Daily. I and numerous friends ride our peg bikes at Vail. One can even rent peg skibikes at Rocky Mountain Skibikes in Vail Village.
In Colorado one can ride peg skibikes and skibobs at: Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, and Breckenridge. Have been for the past three seasons.
Peggers are also allowed at Park City, Heavenly, Northstar California, Kirkwood, Afton Alps, and Mt. Brighton. Vail Resorts, Inc. loves skibikers.

The rules say no biking in the terrain parks as well. That rule is no longer enforced at Colorado Vail Resorts locations.
Make sure one does have a leash for the chairlift. That rule is enforced at Vail Resorts locations. It needs to connect the bike to the lift - not you. One does not want to get dragged off the lift if the bike gets dropped or have it fall on someone below.
If one has a pegger, the ski resort choice is almost limitless in Colorado. Adaptive riders have even more choices. Copper Mountain does allow adaptive commercially manufactured peggers - no homebuilds allowed though.
Bottom line: Don't believe everything one reads. A few people still have anti-peg agendas out there. Be informed.
