It’s more hands-on than snowmobiling, and cooler than motocross; it’s called snowbiking, and Niseko Snowbike Tours give you a taste of one of the globe’s most awesome new sports. A snowbike is an off-road motorcycle which has its wheels replaced by a ski in the front and a caterpillar track at the back. Snowbiking allows you to maneuver with the agility of a dirt bike with the terrain mastery of a snowmobile. Lighter and more flexible than a snowmobile, a snowbike is able to sidehill, climb the slopes and navigate through tightly gladed terrain.
Ideally Niseko Snowbike Tours are for intermediate to advanced motorbike riders who will be able to transfer their skills to the snowbike after a short training session. However, group or private lessons are available for first timers to get to know this epic new sport, as everyone should get to experience the unique exhilaration of riding a snowbike.
