Winter Woolly 2018

February 10 @ 8:00 am - February 11 @ 5:00 pm

Highland Mountain Bike Park and MTBVT are at it again in 2018! Join us February 10th–11th and make history at the second annual Winter Woolly Downhill Fatbike fest.

Working in conjunction with neighboring fatbike party starters MTBVT — you may know them from events such as Winterbike and Überwintern — the Highland event will be based largely on the MTBVT formula.  Snow + bikes + bikes + bikes = party! Add in the Highland flavor and you have the world’s best downhill fatbike festival: Downhill laps, group rides/trains, XC and DH demo loops, DH fat bike race, and beer garden in the backyard!

Not a race type of rider? Multiple trails will be groomed top to bottom for those looking for more leisurely descents as well as a few of XC singletrack trails.

“Based on the Winter Woolly’s success in 2017 we knew we had a winner.” says event co-founder Dave Smutok. “I’m looking forward to extending our operations at Highland into the winter. We learned a lot last time and are ready for a horde of fatbikers and whatever winter throws at us.”

The event will include an onsite demo garden, rentals through the bike shop, food at the Highland Pub, beer garden campfires and après entertainment at the lodge.

The DH Fat Bike Race is additional $10 with registration. The race will be one open class and based on single run timing. Prizes and glory await the fastest riders in this inaugural event.
