    I rented a “bike” like that once. I think it was at Loon Mtn in New Hampshire. It was a bit bigger bike, but had the little snowboards on it. The ski lift had a special hook to take it up the hill, and I bombed down the trail with jumps and nearly killed myself several times but it was a BLAST. I always wondered where to buy one
