Grand Targhee, a 65mm Sponsor, 1st resort in USA to allow fat biking on nordic trails

Andy Williams; photo by Powder Day PhotographyAndy Williams, Special Events Manager at Grand Targhee Resort, attended last year’s Fat Bike Summit so we’re pleased to A) have them as a 65mm Sponsor this year, and B) know that Andy will be hanging around all weekend, helping us do what needs to be done to make the event run smoothly. We just have to prevent him from riding around on his fat bike. (Photo of Andy by Powder Day Photography.) Word has it that he just might be bringing some lift tickets to dispense as prizes.

Andy will also be talking to the land managers on Friday of the Summit because, as it says on the Grand Targhee snow mountain biking/fat bikes page:

Grand Targhee ResortGrand Targhee Resort is the first ski resort in the United States to embrace and endorse fat bikes aka snow biking on our nordic trail system. Bikers who purchase a nordic ticket for $10 per day or a Nordic season pass for $120 will have access to the Grand Targhee Resort Nordic Trail System.

He’ll have knowledge to share.

And if you’re in the area the weekend before the Summit & Festival, consider competing in the 2nd Annual Grand Targhee Fat Bike Race on Jan. 19:

Our new video: ‘What’s up with Fat Bikes’

Some of the money donated by QBP for the 1st Fat Annual Bike Summit (see our History page for more on that) was used to hire Jake Hawkes at Gravnetic to produce a Fat Bike video. It’s now done, with help from Dave Byers, Andy Williams, Ray Spencer, Jay Petervary, and Scott Fitzgerald:
