Winter Groomed Trails

CRAMBA supports groomed snow trails for winter fat biking both by working to groom trails ourselves via volunteer efforts and by working with land managers who are working to produce their own groomed trails.

Please respect the efforts and money put into grooming the trails by observing the following suggested policies:

  • Riding a bike specially designed with front and rear tires that are 3.7-4.8 inches wide to float on snow or soft sand. Rims start at 65 mm wide and tires than run on 10 psi or less.
  • No mountain bikes with less than 3.7 inch wide tires will be allowed on trails. They create deep ruts in the groomed surface.
  • Ride only when temperatures are cold enough to sustain the groomed trail
  • Riders need to be aware of the depth of their tire grooves.
  • If the groove is half inch or more, air pressure should be reduced or consider riding another day.
