Highland Mountain Bike Park and MTBVT are at it again in 2018!

Join us February 10th and11thand make history at the second annual Winter Woolly Downhill Fat Bike Fest.

The team has cooked up a number of improvements over last years event. First and foremost, the Winter Woolly will be extended to two days on the cold rolled slopes for 2018. This year promises more terrain and advanced grooming as Highland Trails has invested in specialized fat bike grooming equipment; the trail crew has been shaping lines since the first snowfall!

Working in conjunction with neighboring fat bike party starters MTBVT you may know them from events such as Winterbike and berwintern the Highland event will be based largely on the MTBVT formula. Snow + bikes + bikes + bikes = party! Add in the Highland flavor and you have the worlds best downhill fat bike festival: Downhill laps, group rides/trains, XC and DH demo loops, DH fat bike race, and beer garden in the backyard!

The event will include an onsite demo garden, rentals through the bike shop, food at the Highland Pub, beer garden campfires and aprs entertainment at the lodge.

The DH Fat Bike Race is additional $10 with registration. The race will be xxx and with a 2 run format. Best run will count. Prizes and glory await the fastest riders in this inaugural event.
