Fat Biking Fun In Vermont

We are excited to announce that more ski resorts in Vermont are now opening up to the use of fat bikes for their guests! What are fat bikes you may ask? They are like a traditional bike except their tires are extra-wide, generally from 4" to 6" and are equipped to run over snow, sand, mud or other terrain that generally would cause them to sink. Fat biking in snow each winter is growing in popularity and we can see why! For those who aren't comfortable on skis or a snowboard, now many resorts around Vermont are opening up their trails to fat bikers.

Locally here in Woodstock, The Woodstock Inn's Nordic Center has recently begun to amp up it's fat biking scene for guests. "This season will see a reprise of the “Fat Tuesday” night rides—group rides for all abilities, featuring head lamps and a casual dinner after— and Fatstock, formerly a race, will be a full-on festival this season, held on Feb. 25.  Nordic Center director, Nick Mahood is also excited about plans to groom three or four of the Center’s 8 miles of singletrack for fat biking  this winter and to build out mountain bike trails on nearby Suicide Six in time for the 2018 summer season ("

If you are a snow enthusiast or want to experience fat biking, come visit us at Leave No Trace Cabin. Within minutes of several fat biking trails, the possibilities for fun are endless. And of course after a long day of biking you can come back to the cabin  knowing that it has all the amenities you need for a relaxing night. Also, you can book directly with the owner Bambi and save time and money without going through hoops and fees compared to a bigger site. Learn more here at:
