VAIL – Late-afternoon and evening guided Trikke SKKI tours haze been added to the lineup of activities at Adventure Ridge at Eagle’s Nest on Vail Mountain.

The Trikke SKKI allows a rider to use his or her weight of body to carve into any turn while all three skis remain on the ground. A three-point stance brings control and stability to riding the Trikke SKKI on the slopes with a minimal learning curve. It is designed for use on everything from groomed runs to fresh powder and requires no special bindings or boots.

The rider’s feet are not secured to the equipment, leaving them free to adjust to each turn. Similar to skiing or snowboarding, using the Trikke SKKI edges provides control of speed and direction.

“Ski biking has been popular at Adventure Ridge for years and we’re happy to add to that offering with the Trikke SKKI, which will allow less-skilled skiers and riders to experience Vail Mountain at night from a totally different perspective,” said Alex Gentry, Adventure Ridge manager.

Ninety-minute guided Trikke SKKI tours are available at Adventure Ridge Tuesday through Saturday nights from 4:45 p.m. to 7 p.m. They require no extra equipment, however, warm waterproof boots, helmets, warm layered clothing, gloves and appropriate eyewear are recommended. Headlamps are provided for tours after dark. Riders must be 14 years of age and at least 54 inches tall.
