Don't go bananas!! Follow good riding etiquette. (Snowkraft realizes that most people know, respect and follow the rules, but there are always a few bad guys. Bad guys, read this and follow it. or else!!!)
Fat Bike Ride Guidelines
1. Snowkraft was first a ski center. Respect the skiers. They generally know more about snow and what it takes to groom and maintain a ski and bike center.
2. Tire MUST be 3.8 or bigger to ride.
2.5 Tires that are overinflated will hurt the trail. See chart to right.
3. Generally, no riding if temp is over 32 degrees. If temp is over 32 degrees, look at the daily conditions report to see if riding is allowed.
4. Riding is NOT allowed on ski trails unless noted. Days that riding is allowed on ski trails will be noted on the website.
5. If you are making a track of more than 1/2 inch on ski trails, you should not be riding. When the trail is softer, you will feel yourself sinking in the snow. Generally, when this happens, you should not be riding on the ski trails.
5.5 Riding IS allowed on bike singletrack (4 foot trails) in more marginal conditions, but use care not to leave too deep a rut, (except in very new soft snow) more than maybe 3/4 inch, as this can be hard to groom smooth. Sometimes you WILL leave tracks on the side of the trail. This is OK, as snow on the side of the trail is not as compacted. Ride the center of the trail- it is hardest.
6. Realize that grooming takes considerable time. If you do not follow the rules, you could be ejected for the day or season. Follow the rules!!
