Snow bikes

Hi all, might be a stupid question, I am coming for a holiday in NZ next June from Oz, part of a big organised tour landing in Queenstown, but do you guys have snow bikes, and if so any in Queenstown, would love to have a go on 1.
I won't have any time for a bike tour as such as the family will be in tow, only there for a week.

Snow bikes, motor cross or enduro bikes with a front ski and a snow mobile track at the rear.

next question please guys, trip is this June, we have a day in the ski fields booked but would also love to have a blast on a snow mobile.
I have only found "Nevis snowmobile adventures " via an NZ tourist info link but cannot find anything else, anybody know if this is the only business in Queenstown or close by that operates snow mobiles.
any info would be great.
