Fat Bikes

The Nordic Center is excited to welcome fat tire bikers on our trails this winter, but we do ask that you adhere to a few rules:

Fat Bike Rules for riding on Nordic Trails

Please, if our parking lot is muddy and you get mud on your tires, do your best to clean the tires in a snowbank before you ride on our trails and track mud all over them. 

  • You need to purchase either a day trail pass or a season pass to the Nordic Center.
  • Please do not ride in soft conditions. If you leave a rut, deeper than one inch it’s too soft.  So please do not come on powder days.  And on warm spring days please do not ride in the afternoon.
  • We only allow genuine fat bikes, no mountain bikes; tires must be 3.5” or bigger.
  • Yield to all other users when riding. Skiers don’t have brakes but you do!
  • Ride on the firmest part of the track.  (If you can picture where the tracks are on our snowcat, that is often the firmest part!)
  • Do not ride on or in the classic tracks.  (the two parallel lines grooved into the snow)
  • Leave room for skiers to pass (don’t ride side-by-side with all of your buddies blocking the full trail).
  • Allow the track time to set up after grooming and before riding.
  • Be an ambassador for the sport: stay polite, educate other riders, discourage bad behavior and follow the rules.
  • If you are not sure if today is a good day to ride, please call 970 385 2114 and ask about current conditions.
