Winter Biking: Fat Bikes and Ski Bikes

Winter Park is Colorado's favorite Playground. And with two downhill bike parks, countless bike events and races and over 600 miles of mountain bike trails, it's no wonder that we also go by Mountain Bike Capital, USA™.

When it comes to mountain biking, our summertime riding is renowned. But did you know that the fun continues all year long? In fact, there are a couple cool ways to stay on your mountain bike up here, even in the winter Because when you love biker, you're not about to put it away for the winter.

Fat Biking

One recent trend in winter biking is riding fat bikes. These aptly named bicycles are unique for their snow tires, which can measure nearly five inches in diameter. This provides the wheels with plenty of surface area to roll right along on snowy trails.

Fat bikers are invited to ride on our numerous nearby national forest trails. Devil’s Thumb Ranch also offers trails designated specifically for fat biking and features fat bike rentals, too. 

Ski Biking

Yet another way to get on a bike in the snowy season is ski biking. These ski bikes are basically a bicycle frame fitted with a pair of skis instead of wheels. This allows riders to enjoy a truly unique bike ride on a downhill ski trail!

Winter Park Resort offers ski bike rentals, lessons and tours, which makes it a great place to try ski biking.
