Fat Bike February


From February 01, 2020 9:00am until February 29, 2020 4:00pm

February is THE month to explore Mount Washington's Nordic trails on a Fat Bike!

 

Just what is fat biking you might ask? Fat biking uses an offroad bicycle that has fatter wheels. These wheels have a larger diameter and are designed for low ground pressure to allow riding on soft unstable terrain, such as snow. This activity is very similar to its summer counterpart! Expect to cruise down compact snow and make agile turns just as if you were on dirt. The extra bounce given by the larger tires acts as increased suspension, making obstacles, including large piles of snow, seemingly easy to get over.

Mount Washington designates up to 15 kilometers of Nordic trails as Fat Bike friendly (weather depending).

 

Free Fat Bike Demos

We are offering a full weekend of FREE Fat Bike demos, courtesy of Rocky Mountain Bicycles. You'll find Wade Simmons outside of Raven Lodge from 10am to 2pm on February 1 & 2, ready to get you set up on one of Rocky Mountain's latest generation of Fat Bikes.

 

Fat Bike Fondue

Available only for the month of February, you can choose to enjoy Mount Washington's Saturday night Snowshow Fondue events on a Fat Bike!

Guests can purchase a regular Snowshoe Fondue ticket but will have the choice to head out on a 1-hour Fat Bike-only tour, followed by the same delicious 3-course fondue dinner at Raven Lodge.

A trail pass, guided tour, dinner and Fat Bike rental are all included in the ticket price, but you are welcome to BYOF - bring your own Fatty! Buy tickets here: https://www.mountwashington.ca/activities-groups/activities/snowshoe-fondue.html
