Winter is fat tire season

Fat tire biking is one of the hottest new winter sports and Giants Ridge is one of Minnesota’s first ski resorts to offer it to our guests. Winter fat tire mountain biking is also one incredible workout burning up to 1,500 calories an hour!

Giants Ridge offers both day and season fat tire trail passes. The Giants Ridge Rental Shop also rents fat bikes for $75 for 24-hours and $40 for 4-hours or less.

Off-Road Biking on The Iron Range

Off-road cycling is here, with pockets of single track trails and dual-purpose nordic ski trails, and an enthusiastic regional club that would love to show you around.

Try the trails at Hibbing’s Maple Hill Park (4 miles), or check out Lookout Mountain on the Laurentian Divide (6 miles, just north of Virginia). Giants Ridge in Biwabik has a host of trails as well. All systems located within a 40-mile radius. Click on the maps below for trail details, and call or email for help with travel plans.
