Mountain bike trails are some of the best snowshoe trails in the winter. Experience a winter adventure while enjoying amazing views of the valley. There are different trails for different skill levels, meaning anyone can try out snow shoes, with short or long hikes available.
Fatbikes were invented for winter trail riding and racing in sub-arctic Alaska and simultaneously, for touring the deserts of New Mexico. They are very versatile bikes, capable of riding on any terrain which includes: snow, sand, desert, bogs and mud as well as normal mountain biking terrain. In 2014 RockShox unveiled the first commercially available front suspension specifically designed for fatbikes, the RockShox Bluto. Until this point in time the majority of riders have seen the fatbike solely as a specialized bicycle for winter or desert riding that does not hold its own in the more traditional areas of mountain biking. By adding a front suspension to the already plush ride that comes with a large tire at low pressures, the Bluto makes a fatbike even more versatile for general trail riding over rough obstacles that a rigid fork struggles to handle. Come try one at Bear Valley Bikes and get a discount when you rent two so you can bring a friend!
