The last few paragraphs talking about the riding opportunities available for fat bikes (there were other mentions further up in the article too) were rather interesting: http://www.westyellowstonenews.com/news ... 963f4.html
Fat bikes are in use in national parks and national forests, state parks and Nordic centers throughout the United States. Meiser used examples from places throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Alaska.
The town of Jackson, Wyo., has approximately 25 miles of groomed trails that fat bike riders can utilize. Fitzgerald proudly noted that they have been incident free in the five years that he has been offering fat bike rentals at his shop.
"You can hear the snowmobiles coming," he said.
Events like the Togwotee Winter Classic snow biking event have popped up within the last four years in the greater Teton area. The Togwotee Pass/Continental Divide trail systems boast more than 600 miles of snowmobile and winter recreation trails. Smaller scale events are starting to gain attention in Minnesota and Wisconsin as well.
With three shops in the Teton Valley offering snow bike rentals and the recent addition of six rental snow bikes and additional signage for the bikes on their 15-plus kilometers of Nordic Trails at Grand Targhee Resort demonstrating the growth of a new form of winter recreation, fat bikes may have a future in West Yellowstone.
