Add Koski Skibikes to Your Rental Fleet: You'll be glad you did!
Skibikes are a great way to bring more people out to the slopes. It's another sport for enthusiasts to try . On those long weekend visits, some folks are too tired to ski the next day. Skibiking, which requires less endurance, would be an excellent alternative. It also has great potential to get non-skiers on the slopes.
Skibiking sells itself these days. Why not put some promotional muscle into bringing out a whole new crowd to the slopes. In a few years, who knows what you would have helped create.
Envision the potential clientele:
1.)Those who are afraid to ski, but know how to ride a bike.
2.) Those who used to ski, but can't because of bad knees, stiff joints and disabilities.
3.) The large group of baby boomers who are heading into their late 50's and aren't as nimble as they once were.
4.) People who ride BMX, mountain bikes or motocross motorcycles.
With one short lesson, these people will be able to enjoy the mountain instead of waiting for their friends or family at the lodge.
Also for those who rent mountain bikes in the summer, skibike costs about the same as a full suspension bike and the maintenance costs are lower than a bike.
We invite resort managers and lead instructors to try out the Koski Skibikes. It will have you smiling before the end of the first run. Check out the stares you get and we are sure that you will see the potential in renting skibikes. When you decide to rent them, we can also assist with putting together skibike lessons.
Currently there are nearly 20 Resorts that have some brand of skibike for rent. And many more are giving skibikes at least limited access to their slopes.
We have been visiting management and staff at various resorts in the Lake Tahoe area. Everybody has been wildly positive about this machine.
