Frisco Fat Biking
Love mountain biking in the summer and want to continue through the winter? Try out fat biking, or snow biking, in the winter. Fat bikes have wide tires that allow you to float over roots, rocks and even ride through the snow. They do not have suspension, but the tires are enough for winter conditions. Fat bikes are also a great way to get into mountain biking as they are a bit more stable and make riding in bumpy terrain much less intimidating. Head over to Pioneer Sports and rent a bike then pop on over to the Summit County Rec Path or nearby trails to get started. Please note that the Frisco Adventure Park does not allow fat bikes on any of the cross-country trails in the facility.
Summit County Rec PathWith elevations ranging from 8,777 feet to 10,563 feet, there is a wide range of difficulty levels to utilize throughout Summit County. The Recpath is a multi-use path available for nordic skiing, biking, dog walking, skateboarding, families with strollers and locals commuting to work. The Summit County, U.S. Forest Service, and the towns of Breckenridge and Frisco have partnered to groom the Recpath between Frisco and Breckenridge throughout the winter that allows more opportunities for winter recreation. Take your bike or skis on the groomed trails that now connect the Gold Run Nordic Center and Frisco Nordic Center, as well as Breckenridge and Frisco. The grooming operations include track-setting for classic Nordic skiers and laying corduroy for skate skiers, cyclists and other non-motorized users. As long as natural snow conditions allow, grooming of the pathway continues through April 30th.
