    Huh, I just had the totally opposite experience with a 4" fat bike. We had somewhere around 6-8 inches on the trail, and it just wasn't working (semi-packed or totally untouched, didn't really matter). It couldn't dig in and get grip. Maybe it was the type of snow and trail conditions or tires, but 'floating' on the surface wasn't going to get you anywhere uphill or even level. I dropped the pressures from ~8-9psi when I picked it up to quite a bit less (I'd guess 5-6, but no gauge), but no dice. I'd guess on a nicely groomed and compacted trail, they'd be a blast though. On a good surface, that extra width is fun.

    I went back out in my ~20psi 2.1" 29er, and bam, much better... sink a few inches to compact the snow, and the rear dug in and would bust the front right through the crust ahead. Still hard work and slow going, but more rideable in depths up to almost the bottom of the rotor. Much above that, I think it's hopeless on whatever bike you're riding. Plow into a 2' deep drift at speed, and you just endo into a pillow of fluffy cold.

    I just got back from 12 ish miles at Horse Ridge, about 15 miles east of Bend, Oregon. WHAT A PLACE! Tons of technical climbing and downhill...mid 60s today. So amazing (until I was riding on an old cattle trail and somehow a piece of wire got jammed into my front disc brake and I went over the handle bars. Ugh)

    This is one of my favorite spots to stop and "soak it in" - any season.

    bike towing sled looks like fun!

    I remember as a kid being towed on a sled behind my parent's snowmobile. I'm amazed that I survived my childhood ...youth and adulthood

    I found a video of a little loop that some of the guys have been keeping open through the winter (It isn't the only winter trail here, but has become a regular part of many rides).

    "The Ikea Track"



    (it is not my video, and I'm not in it either)

    I'm at that time of year when it's still winter on one side of the mountain and spring on the other. I ride up a 3.5 mile service road that's mostly south-facing then HAB up the last mile or so as it wraps around the back of the peak and up to the summit.

    166

    Then from here, just over that edge..... it's all steep, downhill, South-facing, mostly dry goodness.

    168

    169

    Got a fresh dusting yesterday and managed to get first tracks on a few trails this morning. Tell me that doesn't look inviting...

    Good video. That trail is wicked! Riding in the winter on snow covered trails is so intense, but you made it look fun!
