There is a growing number of skibike friendly places in the USA and Canada. The love for the sport is steadily growing and it is inspiring to see more and more resorts and places that allow ski-bikers to display their prowess.
You might be wondering, why are there areas that do not allow ski-biking? Well, it is still not as popular as skiing or snowboarding. Some resorts probably prioritise the two over ski-biking. Usually, resorts have different areas for all these in order to avoid collision or accidents. This is just an assumption but it is a good reason why some resorts do not allow ski-bikers.
