In the photo above a Unita-Wasatch-Cache Forest Service District Ranger is grooming a fat bike trail near Salt Lake City. Trail grooming is one of the topics covered in the upcoming Ogden Regional Fat-bike Summit.
The Ogden Regional Fat Bike Summit will be focused primarily for public land managers, Nordic ski associations, chambers of commerce, and other city or county agencies interested in learning more about fat bike access issues, demographics, and grooming techniques.
“I’d like to thank both Visit Ogden and the Courtyard Mariott folks for helping us pull this Regional Fat Bike Summit together,” said QBP’s Advocacy Director Gary Sjoquist, who is coordinating the event. ”We’ll be presenting a Land Manager Award for enlightened management practices regarding fat bike access and learning about current grooming techniques. We’ll also have representatives from the BLM on hand to talk about their Leave No Trace program and the introduction of fat biking in the Owyhee Canyonlands.”
There is no admission for the Ogden Regional Fat Bike Summit, which will take place from 9 am to Noon, Friday, Feb. 26th at the Courtyard Marriott, 247 24th St., Ogden, UT 84401.
