Third Time’s a Charm – Winter Woolly 2019 Recap

Winter Woolly is a unique, unpredictable beast.  Riding fat bikes down a snow covered mountain requires just the right combination of snowfall, grooming, and temps to pack the trails in. Luckily for 2019, everything lined up to make this the most successful Winter Woolly to date! 

Upwards of 300 riders converged for a day of lift accessed downhill fat biking. Jake’s Bike Shop, Goodale’s Bike Shop, Belmont Wheelworks, S&W Sports, Papa Wheelies, and Fat Bike Skis were set up in the vendor garden with demos for all to try. Clif provided our morning boost with an energy granola breakfast for everyone.

Things started off nice and firm, providing for some fast packed laps. Early bird gets the worm as they say. 

By mid day, group rides have taken off into town, the race was ripping under the lift for all to heckle, plenty of beverages were consumed, and carnage ensued.

As the day came to an end and vendors started packing up, the Highland Pub was filled with tired, stoked riders celebrating a successful day over burgers and drinks with friends. Huge thanks to all who came out to ride fat bikes with us. If you haven’t done so yet, make sure to check out the video recap above and the podcast below.  Pencil it in…Opening Day is April 25th!
