Above 8000 feet for early cross-country skiing and fat biking is where it’s at!
As the snow begins to fall at elevation, JHNordic is watching the snow line carefully, to see where there might be enough base to try our skis or fat bike to get in shape for winter. Look for trails above 8000 ft (or snow-line) And as odd as its might sound, bring your bear spray – since bears are not quite yet in hibernation and could be anywhere.
