We both took lessons with Mike Sparkman and it was fantastic. Mike was patient and full of information and tips about how to have a great... More

We haven't skied in years, ever since we found snow bikes. Mike handled everything for us, and gave lessons to friends snow biking for the first time. We were intermediate skiers, at best, as we only make one trip a year. In a few hours you will be on trails you wouldn't have taken on skies or a snowboard. We... More

My husband loved Snowbiking. He had a lesson in the morning and got certified. He then spent rest of day hanging with the other guys he met on the slopes! Love every minute!

The snowbike experience was great. I will recommend it to all my friends and family. Mike did a great job teaching me how to enjoy the Durango slopes.

My daughter and I are avid skiers, and tried this for the first time. Mike (Sparky) was a fantastic teacher and had us up and running in no time, and we had a blast! We were giggling and squealing down many of the runs! I definitely recommend it!

Went to Purgatory with some avid skiing friends, and because it's been 30 years since I was on skis - took a ski lesson the first day. Short story: after 2.5 hours my legs were Jello and I was a sweating, panting mess - completely done for the day. The next day I met Mike and Donna and was introduced... More

I have been snowbiking for several years now, but I learned I had to be certified to take the bike on the ski lifts. It was wonderful getting to ride and learn with Donna, she is a fantastic instructor and also taught me about the mountains there. I hope I can become certified to teach snowbiking.

To start the day I had a lesson with Donna and she was very fun and informative and made sure I was more than comfortable before sending me off with my bike. It was easy to learn and quick to pick up. They are very easy to ride and a lot of fun and by the second day I was... More
