Do you like to ride in the snow?

If you're like me you most likely like to ride in the snow. There are a lot of ski resorts and XC ski trail systems open and friendly to fat bikes. Largely due to events like The Fat Bike Summit that works with the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management and the Forest Service as well as private land managers to open their trails to fat bikes. The list is steadily growing and it’s becoming pretty easy to plan a winter get away with your beloved fat bike. If you’re thinking that a nice romantic weekend is in order at Breckenridge you better book something soon. If Breckenridge is not your cup of tea there’s plenty of other places to look at.

Now, please don’t get all bent out of shape and start sending me hate mail because such and such resort is not on the list. This is what I could find in a sort amount of time on the interwebs. I know there’s a lot more out there but this will help to get you started.

 

Keep the rubber side down,

About Backwoods Off

Bob is at heart a nice guy, a fact he tries hard to dispel by riding a Harley (and dressing like it), and by hunting deer, turkey, and others of God’s magnificent creatures, which he then eats because that is how you do that. He enforces Surly’s use of social media, which is not as funny as it may sound since many people in this group truly hate the very idea of social media.
