About Us
EXPERIENCES

Head out on a Rocky Mountain Blizzard fat bike with 4.5″ wide tires, to visit a frozen waterfall! Experience a new way to play this Winter. This tour requires biking experience but you don’t need to be an expert.

The bikes are geared low to make it easy to pedal on the snow. As our guide, Claude says, “It feels like you are doing something you shouldn’t be able to do. That’s why people are loving it so much”
