Allowed before and after hours on the resort similar, to uphill ski routes

MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – January 5 – The origins of mountain biking and their ties to Crested Butte, Colorado are well known by many, so it comes as no surprise that Crested Butte Mountain Resort has decided to welcome bikes during the winter months too. With the rise in popularity of “fat bikes” within the biking industry, the resort realized the opportunity of allowing winter riding enthusiasts to enjoy the slopes with other “uphill” users.

Nearly three years ago, the resort launched an established uphill policy for skiers who were seeking to “skin up” the mountain before and after lift hours, due to the popularity of the sport at the time. The addition to include “fat biking” this year in the resort’s uphill policy was an apparent next step. In recognizing that winter biking is an ever-growing trend, the destination is also hosting the first ever Borealis Fat Bike World Championships, January 28 - 31, 2016, which includes a conference, demos and a race (solo or teams) in North Village, located just 1 mile from the ski resort in Mt. Crested Butte, a race at...Read more
