    Come up to Arctic Valley this weekend and check out this new(ish) event. Maybe someday lift accessed snow biking? Hey, snowboarding used to be illegal.

    Make sure to come out and join the fun this weekend folks! Make sure to bring a true fat tire bike as it is required by the permit the event has. Last years event was a blast and this years event is shaping up to be even better so don't miss out.

    Merry Marmot races on fat bikes were a riot this morning. The downhill course from the saddle was crazy fast, and crazy with what I think must have been over 25 riders ripping down at mass start. It'll go down again next year, so try to make it up. Thanks Anchorage Ski Club for a cool event.

    Merry Marmot Festival-image.jpgYep, that was fun! I heard green bikes make it hard to get the holeshot.
