Snow Bike Rules of the Trail

  • Snow bike riding – Only on designated Nordic trails
  • Bikes – Should yield right away at all intersections
  • Snow bike riders – Should let track set–up until 10:00am on morning in which the track is groomed
  • Snow bike lane – Ride to left of classic track/yield to all skiers. Stay to right side of trail around corners and for oncoming skiers
  • Trails – Do not ride in soft conditions. Hard packed conditions on Wisconsin fatbike trails with 2″ new snow is ok, more than 2″ (you can’t climb or descend very well). In a Wisconsin snow cycle 12″ or more with freshly groomed trails can be too soft. If you leave a rut, it’s too soft
  • Snow bikes only on trails, tires must be 3.7″ or larger
  • Tire pressure will often be less than 10 PSI. Enough float so you can travel over snow without leaving a tire print deeper than one inch
  • Ride on the packed and firmest part of the track (do not ride in soft conditions).
  • If there is not enough snow, take a “time out”. Riding on trails that are freezing and thawing (without snow coverage), can damage the trails.
  • Be an ambassador for the sport: Be polite, educate other riders, and follow the rules.
Thank you, be safe, and have fun!!
