Video: Hitting Groomers on a Fat Bike
For sure there are some snow conditions where standard bikes work. We've all seen sno-style and 4x races pop up now and again, but I think it has to be pretty hard packed and icy.

In those conditions, you had to have a fat tire to stay afloat and have the traction to stop. See above. A 2.5 would have been unusable.

We found that even the 3.9 fat tires were too small to stay on top. The aggressive 4.7 tires were the ticket here for sure. And you need that traction to stop as well.

Near Idaho Falls, Idaho, USA. Special permission and probably quite rare. I am not aware of any other resorts that allow this. Anyone else know?

Even though it's groomed - its not perfectly solid, unless it's really cold and icy. You need the fat tires to stay on top, otherwise you just sink through, at least that was the case here.

OK, I can take it. The Carbon Demo is new-ish and not totally new. In addition to dropping 1/2 lbs by switching to carbon, it also has a lower BB option, a more progressive leverage ratio and a 135 rear end option for 7-speed drivetrains. I hope that will tide you over until we a do ground up version,
