Want to explore the winter wonderland surrounding Park City without having to buy a lift ticket? Consider renting a fatbike – an exciting outdoor activity that is rapidly growing in popularity.
Fatbikes are bicycles with oversized tires, allowing them to travel easily over snowy trails, and have even been ridden all the way to the South Pole!
We’re far from Antarctica, but Park City also boasts a vast network of trails, many of which are open to fatbike riding in the winter. Hop on a fatbike and see a side of Park City that many visitors never do.
Where to Rent a Fatbike
Fatbikes are available for rental from a number of locations in Park City, including Jans and All Seasons Adventures. To be sure that your fatbike will be ready for you, make a reservation in advance.
Jans: (800) 745-1020
All Seasons: (435) 649-9619
Where to Ride Your Fatbike
Park City has miles of free trails perfect for fatbike riding. Jans recommends starting on the Rail Trail, a groomed trail that connects with the Round Valley Nordic Area. From there you can connect to Round Valley and explore the area. If you’re more adventurous, you can check out the ungroomed Glenwild trail network, riding in the paths left behind by hikers and snowshoers.
For more information on where to take your fatbike, check with the rental shops or consult the Mountain Trails Foundation winter trail map.

One of the best ways to get acquainted with a fatbike is on a guided tour. All Seasons Adventures is offering guided tours this winter that are perfect for active bikers and casual vacationers alike.
