Get your heart pumping this winter with fat biking. These goofy looking bicycles are equipped with tires that can exceed 3.5 inches in diameter. Combine that with some low tire pressure and your new winter mode of transportation is still on two wheels!

Although Fat Biking is a relatively new sport in the outdoor industry, it hasn’t taken long for those of us in Gunnison-Crested Butte to pick it up. You might say it’s in our blood to ride bikes, and if we can find a way to ride year-round, you bet we’re gonna do it. In 2016 Crested Butte hosted the First Annual Fat Bike Worlds, and we plan to do it again year after year!

For Beginners:

 

The Crested Butte Nordic Center’s trail system and Crested Butte Mountain Resort are the best places for a consistent fat biking snow surface. The Nordic Center requires you to have a trail pass that can be bought for the year or day and trails are limited on the east side of their grooming area. Although it is a little pricier, this is the best option for beginners since it’s mostly flat and the trails are groomed almost every day.

For Intermediates:

Fat biking on the mountain requires an uphill pass and is only allowed before and after hours. Although the climbs are steep in places, the snow is fantastic and well packed, making for a consistent riding surface. Consult the uphill guide on CBMR’s website for maps and other information. CBMR also offers a couple singletrack trails in the area around Painter Boy lift that get packed and groomed for Fat Bike Worlds.
