What to pack/wear for your Fat Bike Tour:

  • Warm winter boots and thick warm socks or heated socks (but only if you have a pair!) 
  • Hand and Toe warmers if you tend to get cold fingers and toes
  • Warm, full fingered gloves (not mitts) and protective eyewear (ski goggles/sunglasses).
  • Helmets are mandatory and included in tour cost. Feel free to bring your own. Ski helmets totally work and tend to be warmer than bike helmets on colder days. 
  • Two neck warmers or buffs – one to to fit under a helmet and one for around your neck 
  • Snow pants & Winter Jackets are essential in any temperatures below zero.  Gear can be rented from stores in Banff such as Snowtips-Bactrax.

Cross Country Ski Tours - Skis, Boots and Poles
Fat Bike Tours - Bike & Helmet

Private Tours are custom suited to your ability. For Fat Biking, you should be comfortable riding some type of human propelled, two wheeled bicycle prior to taking a private tour. That said, we are happy to offer a skills session within your private session. If your instructor feels you do not have the fundamental skills to ride a bike for the tour, you may not be able to participate.

For Cross Country Skiing, no experience is required as we generally offer a beginner skills session with every tour. We do recommend having a recreational, active level of fitness in order to fully enjoy the tour.

If the temperature dips below -15 degrees Celsius then we will not run the tour and we would be pleased to reschedule your private booking.
