Vail, CO 81620
Fancy an unusual adventure on your ski vacation? Try ski biking. On a mountain. At night.
Yes, this is a real thing. At least, in the mountain oasis of Vail, Colorado it is. Ski bikes, by far the most extreme and unusual of the activities offered at Adventure Ridge on Vail Mountain, are a little bit like vampires here in Vail—they only come out at night and they are eerily fascinating. These unique contraptions, made up of a bike frame with two skis strapped to the base, are guaranteed fun.
Head up to Adventure Ridge just past sunset in a cozy gondola and watch as kids scream their way down slick, icy slides clinging for dear life to inflated tubes. Nightly two-hour tours cost $69 per person and depart at 4:45 , 5:15, 6:30, and 7 p.m.
