Fat Biking Etiquette

  • At Naughton, you must have a WCCFC membership or a day/evening pass
  • Ride only on trails assigned for biking; check at the Chalet on which trail are open.

  • Minimum tire tread width is 3.7”.  Fat Bikes Only – No Mountain Bikes

  • Keep tire pressure low – 5-10 psig

  • Allow the track time to set up after grooming and before riding.

  • Do not ride in or close to the classic ski tracks
  • Yield to all other users when riding. Skiers don't have brakes but you do!

  • Ride on the firmest part of the skate track and away from the edges.

  • Leave room for skiers to pass (don't ride side-by-side with all of your buddies blocking the full trail).

  • Dogs are not allowed on the ski trails.

  • When is it too soft to ride?

    • As a general rule, if you have to get off and push your bike, the snow is too soft and you shouldn’t be on the ski trails. If you leave a rut, it’s too soft.

    • If you are leaving a trough that is deeper than an inch or are having a hard time riding in a straight line, your tire pressure is too high or it is probably too soft to be on the trails.

    • Be a good trail citizen and if for some reason, you leave ruts that will impact skiing negatively, please leave the trail.  Also, please let the main desk know so we can let others know.
