There is a new sport taking winter recreation by storm. Snow biking. A few years ago, you would have been forgiven for having never heard of it. Now, snow biking is more popular than ever and giving its big brother, the snowmobile, some fierce competition.
Snow biking is a hybrid of snowmobiling and dirt bike riding. Snow bike conversion systems take a motocross or off-road motorcycle from dirt to snow by replacing the wheels on a motorcycle with a ski in the front and a track system in the back. On a snow bike, you can traverse very steep slopes with ease in very packed, hard snow, yet you can also gracefully float through the powder, carving back and forth like a snowboarder does.
