    This is a fat bikes only event. Tires must be 3.8” or wider. We do allow studded tires.

    We will not have rentals or demos available onsite. We recommend inquiring with your local bike shop to find available rentals.


    The main draw of the Winter Woolly is access to groomed DH trails in the winter. As for which trails will be open? That’s a decision that Mother Nature gets to make for us, and depending on weather we may not have a definitive list until the week of. We’ll update this page as we get closer to the event!

    Our XC network will be free and open to ride. XC trails will be groomed as well!


    The Winter Woolly DH Fat Bike Race is a highlight of every winter, and we don’t expect this one to be any different. Race against your friends, against the elements, against mankind’s hubris…just don’t be afraid to hit the snow.

    This is an open class race, with the top three finishers taking home prizes and bragging rights. (And probably a little extra snow in their pants.) Race registration is available as a $15 add-on to your event registration. Limited to 90 participants.

    Race trail is TBD (see: Mother Nature) but has traditionally been Upper NE Style to Lower Happy Hour. We’ll keep you posted.



    Winter Woolly conditions have always been variable! We recommend coming prepared with multiple layers (and probably a set of dry clothes.)

    The Winter Woolly is the first day of riding in 2023, which means everyone participating needs to get a new Highland waiver verified. To help our fabulous Welcome Center staff keep the line moving in the morning, fill out your waiver online in advance and have your photo ID ready when you check in!

    We expect that parking will be tight, so we recommend carpooling if possible.



    I’m a season pass holder. Do I need to register?

    If you are a 2023 All-Access Season Pass Holder, you get free access to the Winter Woolly and are not required to register in advance. (Though you’re certainly welcome to! There is a free registration open for All-Access pass holders to use if you want to RSVP. You can also use that option to purchase an event t-shirt or register to participate in the fat bike race.)

    How wide do my tires have to be?

    This is a fat bikes only event. Tires must be 3.8″ or wider.
