Skibyk is a new way to have fun in the mountains

A new extreme winter sport at the summit is a cross between mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding.

SEATTLE β€” EDITOR'S NOTE: This segment was shot prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With Skibyk, you will be able to rip up the hills and experience the slopes in a whole new way! It's essentially a mountain bike with skis instead of the wheels.

Generally, within a few runs, you'll be cruising and having fun. And the learning curve is very accelerated compared to skiing or boarding.

You stop, just like skiing, by leaning the bike sideways and digging the ski edges into the snow.

Chris Schuler, who created Skibyk, tells us, β€œIt's an extreme sport, but like any sport, you can make it extreme as you want to.”
