What are Timbersled Snow Bikes?
Timbersleds have quickly become the fastest growing winter sport. It is essentially dirt biking on snow. The front tire is replaced with large ski and the back tire has been replaced with a narrow snowmobile track. As the first company in Colorado to offer the Timbersleds as a winter rental, we have spent countless hours testing and improving these machines for high-altitude, winter use.
Unguided Timbersled Rentals on Vail Pass. How does that work?
Due to Forest Service Laws, we cannot legally drop machines off at Trail Heads or act as a Guided Service in the Vail, Colorado Area. What we can do is provide you with a trailer at no cost and we can show you were to go – you are your own guide. If you do not have a vehicle that can tow, we have a Chevy Yukon that you can rent for an added fee. If you are looking for a guided experience, we offer Guided Timbersled Snow Bike Tours at our Buena Vista location.
Are Timbersleds hard to ride?
NO! Timbersled Snow Bikes are easier to ride than a Snowmobile in the powder. They offer stability and agility when you need it and most riders who are new to the sport will usually feel comfortable on a Timbersled within the first hour of use.

Can kids ride Timbersleds?
You Betcha! We love kids that ride and we offer the ST Ripper from Timbersled for those of you looking to get your kids into the sport.
What is the proper name for a Timbersled?
Anytime a new sport comes along, the debate begins on what to call it. The Timbersled Snowbike goes by many names including Snow Bike, Timbersled, Snowtorcycle, Snow Dirt Bike, Mountain Sled, Timber Sled, Snow Motorbike, Snow Moto, Snow Bike Sled, Dirt Bike with Snow Tracks, Snow Bike Motorcycle, and Snow Motorcycle. So how do you know which one to refer to the sport as?
Timbersled itself is a Brand name and they were the company who really started the movement. Our rental fleet is 100% Timbersled while using the KTM engines/bodies which is why we refer to it as “Timbersled Rentals.”
What is the difference between a Snow Bike and a Timbersled?
Snow Bikes and Timbersleds are used interchangeably but an actual Snow Bike refers to the original mountain bikes that use skis instead of tires in the winter. You can rent these on Vail Mountain and other ski areas.
In the end, the sport is still finding its name. We will continue to refer to it as Timbersled Snowbikes but we are also a big fan of SnowMoto.
