Skibob is an individual sport where participants travel down a snow-covered hill on a bike outfitted with skis instead of wheels. Skibob is a winter sport involving a bicycle frame attached to skis instead of wheels. Although skibobs are often called ski bikes and snow bikes, the sport should not be confused with snowbiking, which is the sport of cycling on snow.
The original concept for a bicycle with skis was patented in 1892 and skibobbing was used as a form of transportation in the Alps, it was not until 1954 that the first international race was held. Seven years later, the Federation Internationale de Skibob was formed, which since 1967 has held an annual Skibobbing World Championship.
