In this second year of winter downhill fat bike racing at Spirit Mountain, the Frosted Fatty is growing even “fatter” this year. The Fat Bike celebration at the regions only lift-access fat bike ski area will morph into a two-day Bike Festival. Plans are to expand with additional bike demos, family and youth activities, food & beverage tastings and music. The traditional staged downhill race format will continue and a cross country race will be added to give all fat biker enthusiasts an opportunity to reign atop the Frosted Fatty! Stay tuned for additional updated and information.
