Michigan Mountain Biking Association
A friendly PSA - Occasionally the snow surface can sustain non-fatbike or skinny tire use (not very often--requires a groomed surface and sustained extremely cold temps to firm up the surface). There can be a lot of time and money put into grooming a surface for fatbike use and those that put in the volunteer hours for grooming and the costs for fuel/ oil/ wear and tear on equipment/ costs to fabricate grooming apparatus would appreciate all users being respectful of their impact on trails that are being groomed.
There are a lot of users potentially. We (at Fort Custer) deal with walkers/ hikers, skiers, dog-sledders altogether. It is difficult enough to "keep the peace" with all of the users...let alone to try to govern our bicycling community with this whole winter/ fat-biking/ grooming thing. It can be a sensitive subject...but common sense should prevail--if you are leaving indentations/ruts more than 1-2" in depth you should not be using the trail. Check your PSI before you ride and make sure it's been lowered to an adequate pressure for riding groomed trail.
