Not sure if this is worthy of a thread, but has anybody seen these being used at a ski area? I just noticed that Stowe's webpage has been updated to include these as an acceptable sliding device. They even provide details on what lift they may use on, loading instructions, etc.

Saw a guy at Black Mountain in NH using one at least 7 years ago. Looks fun.

There were a couple of guys who you would see fairly regularly at Mount Snow on them last Winter

I saw some snow bikes at Gunstock back in the 80s. Also saw one a couple years ago at Crotched and talked to the guy

I'd like to try it, looks kind of fun. Seem to be a little bit on the expensive side for the nice ones.

Saw two guys ripping them at Stowe last season on a powder day. They were flying down some moguls it was quite impressive. Also a guy at Mount Snow I’ve seen on one. Looks fun but I’m sure I’d get hurt trying.

They rent them at Big Snow (indoor place in NJ) if one ever wanted to try one out fairly affordable ly in a tame environment.

Always figured they were largely for people intimidated by or icapable of skiing
