BRECKENRIDGE- As a Breckenridge ski and snowboard instructor, Jim Enez is used to teaching people how best to get down a mountain.
But this summer he's doing things a little different. With only a few weeks of practice himself, Jim is now the expert instructor for a new spin on summer business, teaching tourist how best to get up the mountain by stepping up and learning to drive Segways on steep and scenic rocky mountain trails near Peak 8.
"We can get them up and running in about two minutes," said Enez.
Those who are brave enough get to take specially designed Segways perfect for mountain travel. Right now up to six of your favorite Segway friends can take a two hour tour together.
It's something Shaun Murphy and his family are up to try.
"We have never done this before," said Murphy. He's skied down the Breckenridge slopes before but on his summer vacation he's taking the Segway up them.
"This is fun, it's a lot better than hiking it's a lot easier that's for sure,"' said Murphy.
Rolling through forest and past fields filled with mountain flowers seeing the Colorado landscape like never before and has Jim will tell you having a lot of fun along the Segway.
"It's a new experience for all of us," said Enez. The tours are about two hours long and cost about $60 leaving at the base of Peak 8.
