The Howelsen Hill Nordic Center has opened its groomed Nordic trails to Fat Bikes. All approved trail uses require a ticket or season pass for use.
Fat Bike riders are required to wear a Nordic season pass or day ticket, both can be purchased in the Howelsen Hill Lodge during alpine ski hill hours. When the concessions stand is closed, tickets can be purchased upstairs at the SSWSC office or from the vending machine in the fireplace room.
The following rules apply to Fat Bikes so that all trail users continue to have an enjoyable experience.
Groomed Trails should NOT be used by Fat Bikes if:
Fat Bikes are available for purchase or rent at several bike shops in Steamboat Springs. These shops can also offer advice on how to get the most enjoyment out of this new and growing sport. Fat Bikes are allowed on all other city trails in the area that are not groomed for Nordic skiing. In addition, Blackmer, NPR, and Orton Trails are free and do not require Howelsen Hill ticket/pass. Routt County Riders periodically groom NPR and Orton Trails during the winter.
