January Park Report

Winter Woolly, Website Overhaul, and Renovations

Mark your calendars for the second annual Winter Woolly — February 10th and 11th, 2018! We’re partnering up with winter event veterans — MTBVT, who have brought you Überwintern and WinterBike! This two-day event will be jam-packed with fun — downhill Fat Bikes laps, a traditional downhill race, vendors, backyard campfires, beer garden, and live music from the Dusty Gray Band!

The vendor village will be set-up in the backyard with demo bikes available. The Highland Bike Shop will be open all weekend long. All of our Fat Bikes for Saturday, Feb. 10th have been rented out for the day, however, please reach out to our partner shops here or your local bike shop to see about rentals in your area.

This year we have updated our bike trays on the lift allowing them to hold most tires up to 5″. This will help get more fat bikers to the top quicker. Fat bikes with wider tire/rim combos can still hang their bikes.
