If you’re up for a snowbiking adventure, then the over 400 miles of meticulously groomed mountain bike trails in Park City will be right up your alley.

Appropriate clothing and gear

Before embarking on your ride, you will need to make sure that you’re properly equipped with the right clothing and accessories to keep you well and truly protected. First and foremost, bear in mind that while your exertion can make you work up a sweat, cotton clothing may not be your most suitable choice. Clothing made of moisture-wicking synthetic materials that can better regulate your temperature is best. We recommend the following:

  • FOOTWEAR. Snowy conditions can leave you vulnerable to the cold and wet. Pick out sturdy hiking shoes that are water resistant to keep your feet dry and properly protected. Pair your boots with wool or moisture-wicking synthetic socks to keep your tootsies warm.

 

  • JACKET. Your jacket must similarly have a synthetic inner layer that can wick moisture from your skin. Go with a water resistant and breathable outer material to protect you from both the wind and wet conditions.

 

  • PANTS. While snow pants may seem a good idea, they aren’t ideal for movement while you’re biking. Wear more light-weight wind- and water-resistant pants like those used for cross-country skiing instead.

 

  • BEANY. For an extra layer of warmth underneath your helmet, wear a beanie. It’ll help keep your ears from freezing with cold.

 

  • GLOVES. To ensure you are able to sufficiently maintain the finger dexterity you need to bike safely, wear an appropriate pair of mid- to light-weight gloves.
