    Question, Skiers AND snow bikers don't HAVE to stay on the trail mostly because if they are on snow are they really damaging anything? Why don't the snow bikes just ride parallel or where ever they choose? One problem I could imagine might be tree branches. How many tree huggers might cry if branches are broken to protect the cross country ski trails?

    and to think you used moronic, just some things you don't do, don't boot pack over someone who has laid down a skin track up a climb to ski, you don't trail run over nordic trails, sure as hell don't fat bike over a known nordic route, you don't hide behind rudeness under the cover of "be happy they are outside", they are unable to do their "elite" sport with the rocks in their tracks, and yea, I am a cyclist first.

    You need more snow if a fat bike can skid through your base. Complain about the drought, not other users.

    Well, I'm a cyclist first and XC skier a very distant second but I really think the skiers argument makes sense. XC skiing through the woods on a nice smooth track is what makes the experience worthwhile. Any other traffic, be it snowshoes or knobby tires just ruins it. Certain well used winter rec areas have snowshoe routes and ski routes that are separate. Sounds like there needs to be a third - for fat bikes! It makes sense. The trails can cross but fat tires over ski tracks is great big no in my book.

    Get out on your FB or XC skis and enjoy the trails and scenery. If you're on a fatbike, do what you can to stay out of the ski tracks. If you're on your skis don't act like you own the trail either. Seems pretty simple and courteous. No need to call each other names.

    Just moronic. Shut up and be happy that many people in Colorado WANT to be outside and enjoying themselves. Maybe it's time you (dare I say it) INTERACT with people outside your chosen elitist sport. That goes for all of us. We are ALL in it together. Us against poor health, technology over-load, a Nation-wide obesity epidemic. Would I be slightly inconvenienced if a someone on all terrain roller blades was in front of me on a local cx course? Mmmm....maybe, but then I'd think about that person really getting joy out of those roller blades and being healthy and happy and I might even give them a high-five as I pass them--as long as it I felt we could both remain upright.

    REALLY? We're going to complain that someone disturbed the sand in our sand-box?

    Come. On.
