    Get in touch with Paragon Ski and Sport, they rent fat bikes and could help you out. The one time I rented a fatty, I just rode on the Valley Floor. Tried riding up the Meadows Trail but I couldn't keep traction. Could have been the rider, not the bike.

    I've since heard of people doing gondola shuttles to ride down Jerassic and the Meadows and riding Bear Creek to the falls as an out and back.

    Bear Creek is a tough climb, but worth it. Bring some lights and bomb down the slopes after the lifts close on the gondola.
