*Fat bike and snow shoe trails are separate from the ski trails.
Please respect our trails and others by using the designated trails for your sport and to ensure the safety of others as well as prevent damage to ski trails. A footprint or snow shoe and bike track will melt through the snow and spread, creating significantly uneven surfaces.
