Snow Bikes are Fat Bikes and other bikes with wide tyres providing them with lots of traction and are capable of riding on snow. Handling of the bikes requires no previous experience. Riding a Fat Bike on snow is a unique experience, whether you are simply maintaining your fitness or training for another event, or just want to try out something new and exhilarating. Most of all, they are a lot of fun and a great excuse to keep riding throughout winter.

Snow Bikes can also be Mountain Bikes with tyres run at low pressure to increase traction. Riding a Mountain Bike on snow adds another dimension to the fun and excitement that comes with Mountain Biking. The routes of the Snow Bike Festival will be expanded to include MTB friendly trails. The inclusion of a Mountain Bike category at Snow Bike Festival makes the event fully inclusive in the World of Mountain Biking.

The holiday region of Gstaad enjoys a high level of prestige and international renown. In spite of this, it has remained truly Alpine, with its chic charm, British understatement and authentic traditions, or as acting legend Roger Moore (James Bond 007) once said: “Gstaad is the place that I still deeply love and where I moved to in the 70s”.
