The whole stay off the ski trail thing doesn't fit with fatbikes . Old thinking. Be a little more progressive in your thinking. Realize there is a considerable difference with fat bikes vs skinnies.
Interesting article. I watched the video and the ski trail they rode is a lot different from the sort of groomed XC trail that would be an issue 'round here. Where they literally groom ski tracks into a narrow trail.
Note the tracks this gentleman is skiing in:
In this pic, there is room to the side for skate skiing and perhaps fat biking but most of the groomed ski trails I see 'round about here are basically singletrack with room for the groomed in tracks and not much else. If you can't ride (or walk) without messing up those tracks, you're gonna create issues...
The groomed trail I've seen around here is double track, and not single.
I don't know. I ride in the snow machine center track, and not the ski track. If needed off to the side. Why can't people do that and prevent issues. I guess one bad apple.....
