Sugarloaf’s annual Fat Tire Day was held on February 10th, 2018 at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center and was a ton of fun. The day included free demos, guided rides, live music from The Freemont Street String Band and refreshments from Baxter Brewing co. The day also included the Fat Tire Race which participants were able to choose between a long or short course. The conditions were challenging for the racers as fresh snow had fallen in the days leading up to the event but they all had smiles as they enjoyed the riding at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center.
