I am not sure if this type of grooming is going on any where else in the Fat Bike universe but out in American Fork Canyon, Mike Rossberg, owner/operator of Thin Air Cycles in Draper, Ut, has taken things to the next level with dedicated Fat Bike specific grooming!

The rig utilizes a snowmobile just like conventional Nordic style grooming but that is where the similarities end.

The finished product waiting for the shred!

The grooming apparently just started this week and The Utah Mtn Bike Trail Conditions Network will be updating post storm grooming.

Here is what Mike had to say about the first week of grooming; “We did some first time snow grooming on the upper sections of American Fork Canyon yesterday. Timpanooke campground, main road to the summit, down Willow. Fat bike nirvana on Trail #150 and Pine Hollow. Both have been previously packed and are perfect fatty single track.”

PPPC will be following this story as it develops and hopes to get a full interview with Mike Rossberg posted up asap! In the meantime head out to Thin Air Cycles and buy something!
