The snow biking is amazing right now! If you haven't tried it yet, then here is your chance. We are going to do a FWOW fat bike group ride on Feb. 4th at 2pm. The Guide's Hut has offered us 2 for 1 rentals. Thanks Jay Carter! If you have issues getting a bike (size or number) from TGH then let me know and I will speak with the other rental shops and see about getting a deal.

The plan as of now is to meet at the Montane parking lot and we will head out to the hut. Bring a portable snack to share at the hut and then a ride back! This is a green/blue groomed route. It is quite easy and fun.

Let us know if you are able to come and if you need any help securing a bike! Hope you can all make it.

ALL LEVELS WELCOME! Weather pending, stay tuned for changes.

The section of the Lazy Lizard trail from approximately 4km to 5km is still quite wet. We are moving forward with a project to armor it, but it will take some time.
