Fat Tire Biking

Mountain Biking on Winter Trails

Fat tire mountain biking—so named because of the bikes' gargantuan, oversized low-pressure tires—opens up our extensive network of trails for adventures in snowy and muddy conditions.

A variety of biking and hiking trails are ideal for fat biking, and virtually all of our forest service roads link to other spur roads for more options. Whitewater Ski Resort also allows fat biking on their multiuse trail.

For information on where to ride and to buy or rent a fat bike, visit one of our local bike shops: The Sacred Ride or Gerick Cycle & Ski

Mountain trail maps can also be purchased through the Nelson Cycling Club, at Gerick Cycle & Ski, The Sacred RideValhalla Pure and the Nelson Visitor Centre.
