Exciting skibike news from Vail Resorts and Steamboat

Lots of exciting Colorado skibiking news to report for the 2012-13 season.

First off - peggers are going to be permitted at Steamboat Ski Resort for the 2012-13 ski season.   New bikers will need to take a lesson and earn a permit.  Experienced riders will need to take a run with ski patrol and show competence riding before being allowed on the slopes.

I learned from Devin Lenz of Lenz Sport Skibikes that there will be a rental fleet of seven Lenz Sport Brawlers by an individual in Steamboat Springs for the 2012-13 ski season.  I'm trying to track down the name, location, rental pricing, and lessons.  Peg lessons will not be offered through the Steamboat Ski School but through a different entity.  Skibob lessons will be through Steamboat Ski School.

Vail Resorts will also be allowing peggers and skibobs at all their ski resorts starting with the 2012-13 ski season.   This is really exciting news!  This adds Vail, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge to the list of Colorado ski resorts that allow them.  Keystone has allowed it for some time.

I'm still working on getting all the details on the new programs at the various Colorado ski resorts.  I'll cover each resort as information is communicated by resorts.

For now, just pray for snow.  Let's not have a repeat of last season.  It was looking really nice at Winter Park Resort on Saturday.
