There are a couple of fat bikes for rent at Comor.
Where would be a good trail to take them for a quick ride?
Do they allow bikes in the Lost Lake trails in the winter?

No… I went for a run around there on Friday. It's all groomed for XC skiiing, there is a guy at the base of the mountain (close to Nicklaus North golf club) checking for trail passes… he basically told me "no chance". I did end up finding a way in to the trails (from the softball field)… ran a bit on snowshoe trails which was fun but could tell I wasn't welcome (and probably not supposed to be there either) so exited shortly after.

Hey tonight I rented one from the Patagonia store and rode all the blue zappas, was awesome. Think next time might be fun to go up Rick roost across the flank down 27 switchbacks, hopefully some foot traffic to make it easier

Curious how much it costs to rent? I saw a bunch of fat bikes around the village but thought they were for sale…

I think like $12/ hour up to $45/ day or something don't quote me on it. Now that lost lake xc skiing is in full operation its a no go around there, I got told to go away last night :( . Callaghan has some areas for them, maybe flank might be packed enough with foot traffic but I'm not sure, it was better a couple weeks ago when there was less snow

interpretive forest/riverside trails are probably packed down enough right now for riding

AMPM is totally snow free, looks like people have been riding it recently too…

Split the 2015 trail conditions out of the 2014 thread.

Should have ridden that, Cut your bars was fun though on fat bike as was the valley trail side of Emerald, the other side was very icy…

Managed to ride Farside to the suspension bridge with only two short walks. Little snow for the first half much more on the second half. From McLaurins crossing bridge to Cheakamus road was mostly a walk. The road would not be rideable and Highline was mostly walking too. And deep ponds. Business Time all clear essentially to at least the AMPM cut off where I cut off. Judging from the forecast nordic might be done, and valley trails will be better.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

I did a few hours of drainage work on AMPM this morning, had a few really bad sections when I showed up firs thing, managed to at least get most of the water not running down the trail…still needs some work though
