 Must be down to next to nothing for snow in Kelowna. I'm with you, bring on summer....but... I just bought a fat bike, I gotta say, what a riot. I've been winter riding for quite a few years, much like fat skis revolutionalized the ski industry, I think fat bikes will open winter biking up to a whole new crowd. It was really fun to ride all winter on my regular bike, fat biking takes it to a whole new level.

 Great article, even better photos for Fat Bikes enthusiasts! But by any chance does anyone ride 27.5+ bikes in the snow?

 In 3 years nobody will be talking about Fat bikes. If you live in Fernie/Revy You Need to be out skiing now. If you live in Kamloops/Kelowna/Vernon enjoy.

 Fatbike dream: shredding pow, faceshots all day!

Fatbike reality: humping along groomers on a 29er with a Doritos problem.

 Not true, not eery day is a powder day and you can't ski easily in the dark. Plus Fatbiking is a better cardiovascular workout than sitting on a chairlift. And resort skiing is pricing itself out of the market, most of my friends here in Fernie no longer even buy passes, a fatbike can pay for itself in 2 seasons.
