Not sure I've seen this mix before - bicycling down a black diamond ski slope at 60+ MPH!? Location of the competition is Hunter Mountain ski area in the Catskill Mountains of New York.

Bonus shot: guy on a "ski bike" in Austria. I've seen 'em a few times on the slopes, anyone ever try this?

I've seen them, but never seen anyone ski them effectively.

This will date me a bit, but in my youth, when a Honda 160 was a big bike, I saw a winterized motorcycle, with a ski mounted to the front fork, and chain driven snowmobile track in the back.

Taking a digger on one of those would give real meaning to "going over the handlebars."
