2013 Durango Skibike Festival starts tomorrow

 The largest ski bike festival in Colorado if not the USA starts tomorrow.  There will be events and socials held throughout the weekend of February 15 - 17, 2013.

There will be free demos and displays from a variety of manufacturers and companies.  If there is a skibike model you've always wanted to demo, this is the time.

Festival participants will need to purchase lift tickets to ride the chairlifts.  Discounted tickets will be available only to registered participants.  ASA members receive additional discounts.

All bikers will need to show a skibike license to board any DMR lift.  They will honor a license/certification obtained at other ski resorts.  So bring it if you have one.  If you don't have a license, there will be checkout rides each morning from 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.

Hanging out during the festival
Those wanting to learn to ride can take a lesson through the DMR Ski School.   Schedule early as space is limited.

The Jump and Huck contest will take place on Saturday.  Be sure to bring a camera to record the carnage.  I'm sure Devin and Patrick will once again try to determine who has the biggest camera pole.

Saturday's events will conclude with a group dinner at Hoodie's at the ski resort base area.  It's a great time to relive the days events, share stories, and show your photo's of the day.

Parking is limited at the ski base area.  Don't park in the reserved ski employee parking spaces.  Your vehicle  may be subject to fines/booting/towing.

I'm taking a break from this years festival but there will be others representing Winter Park.
