Respect the trail!
Use only fatbike, minimum 3.8″ tyres. Please don’t sink. When the trail is soft, use very low pressures, even 0,3bar or even lower for lightweight riders. Good advise is to press the tyre with your hand and your body weight. If you can hit the rim, it’s too soft. Half an inch between your hand and the rim is good.
If you keep sinking despite low pressures, please turn back and try again another day.
After snowfall, let the freshly groomed track stay over night. Tomorrow it’s going to be much better!
