Ride a Fat Tire Bike This Winter


Winter Fat Tire Biking


Open Daily 10am-4pm

*Weather permitting

Fat tire bikes can be reserved on a first come, first served basis at the Bretton Woods Nordic Center. Enjoy the scenery of the Omni Mount Washington Resort on a fat bike. Whether you have your own or you'd like to rent one of ours, the resort has trails for all abilities. Experience the winter cross-country riding on our trail systems, starting from the Bretton Woods Nordic Center!

While your conventional mountain bike tire is about 2 inches across, fat bikes have tires up to 5 inches across making them capable of floating across snow. Fat biking offers an alternative method of outdoor exercise during the colder months of the year when conditions aren't perfect for traditional winter activities. Fat bikes can fill in the gaps on your itinerary and help keep you in shape all winter long! For more information, please visit or call the Nordic Center at 603-278-3322.

Helmets are required and included with your rental. Riders must be able to fit on the bike properly. We have bikes in sizes for adults and children!
