FAT BIKE UPDATE:

The Snow Dog groomer is permanently on catch up with the weekly storms we’re having, trying it's best to keep you fat bikers happy.

Odanata-Upper CBT-Hemiptera Loop and Arrowhead-Cedar Camp Loop have been freshly groomed.

The Snow shoe crowd are doing a good job of packing Scallimag and we will groom it after this weeks storm.

Rotary trails are all good to ride.

Confluence park will see a groom next week along with lower CBT if we’re caught up with the main loops.

Have fun!

Amazing work!!

XC skiers, runners and dog walkers post holing the beautifully groomed fat biking trails. C’mon people you can do better than that.

You guys rock!! Danny Johnston

Big shout out to the groomers today. Must have been a rough, setting trails in all the wet snow. Had a great time this morning. Thank you

Keep up the amazing job! Thank you!!

Man we were on CBT today and it was drowning in wet snow... are you guys out tomorrow (Saturday)? We're trying to find a good place to ride this weekend before we head back to Deadmonton...

FAT BIKERS!

The grooming plate has been built and is working great
Fat bike trails now groomed are:
Scallimag, Odanata, Buzz, Hemptera, Upper CBT and Arrowhead to the Tequila junction. This will be the main hub for fat biking.

We are working with a limited snow pack with poor snow quality and will be working on improving the quality of these trails before opening up more riding options depending on snow.

Enjoy!

Did the odonata/Hemiptera loop today. Great job on the grooming!

The warm weather/wet snow is pretty tough to work with right now. Currently trying to get odonata/hemiptera loop rideable. We will get this groomer dialed soon!

who u calling Fat? I am just big boned......

Danny Johnston (maybe I’ll convince myself to borrow the fatty sometime to try out this crazy tires on snow thing)

Huw Oliver 👍🏽

Nice work!

What the data on trails grooming?

Andre Blais check this out!

Do u have a picture of how it attaches?

This will be a pivotal winter for the fat tire scene in Golden. Great job gang! That snow 🐶 is a game changer.

Who has a fatty in golden?

Attention fat bikers! No, not you, the bikers with the big tires. Golden Outdoor Recreation Association has a trail grooming machine and is grooming trails for your enjoyment.

Scallimag is groomed and ready to ride. Once we have a little more snow, Odanata, Buzz, and Hemiptera are next on the list.

We don't believe this will increase the melt time of the trails and have chosen trails that are typically late to open just in case. So don't stress about spring riding and get out there and enjoy your fat bikes!

Coming from your neighbors down the valley - we found absolutely no difference in melt time with groomed vs. ungroomed trails. What we did find, however, is a direct correlation between groomed trails and huge smiles. 🤘

Wicked!!! What about in town trail so we don’t have to drive our fatty 🙂

How wide will the grooming be? Can’t wait to try it!

We have one of those in vernon this year. Going to groom predator and parts of Ellison. Can you send a photo of your grooming implement. Ie what you are dragging. We are trying to work that out.

Heather Anderson

John Redekopp, Karey Lee. This is what we need!

Awesome! Gives the Fat Bikers a place to go so they are not tempted by the Nordic ski trails!

Paul Phillips

Remember when the wind blew so hard that biking came to a screeching halt on Mount 7? Do you also remember how the community donated $$$ to recover the trails? Well, thanks for that; we're back on track! ... See MoreSee Less

Do you have siding to help finish the Schacher Pavillion? Please reach out and help.

If 1x6 were available we’d need aprox 72 x 10’ and 18x 12’.The pavilion needs siding! Anyone have access to free (or really cheap) siding material? Same product inside and out would be fine.
