 There has been an annual dual slalom on snow for the past 20+ years here, but I agree that its awesome to see Steamboat Bike Park getting people motivated to Ride More

 Argh! I wish I wasn't still healing!

You think fatbikes will dominate, or will skinny tires dig in and turn better?

 Depends on the snow. Right now it's super soft, so fatbike. Hopefully it'll firm up and I can use my slalom bike.

 Depends on the rider as well. Certain folk will dominate regardless of wheels.
