  • Gary Meyer January 9, 2017 at 2:26 pmShort answer when we say its soft yes it's too soft to ride. Always check the weather. The last few days we have been in an inversion, Bend is cold the mountain is warm. Wanoga has been in the mid 30s durring the day and barely reaching freezing at night.
  • Joe Myers January 9, 2017 at 9:55 am3.8" minimum
  • Erik Santner January 9, 2017 at 9:53 amSo I can't ride a 27.5 plus bike on Wanoga trails? For some reason I thought the minimum requirements before were 3" tires.

Gary’s Grooming Report:

Pray for Snow!

As of 12/25 there is still not enough snow to groom. These are winter-only trails Please do not ride the trails until we start grooming. There are logs on the trails that are extremely slick. — so pray for snow, and stay tuned!

Fat Bike Ride Description

Please Help Keep Trails Open to us by Respecting Trail Etiquette:

  • Weekends and Holidays – park in the upper Wanoga snowmobile parking lot and ride down to the lower Sno-Play area.
  • We share the ski and snowshoe trailhead on the north side of parking lot.
  • Take the snowshoe loop. PLEASE stay off the ski loops. Do not ride on or in the classic tracks.
  • Wide tires 3.8″ or wider.
  • Important: TIRE PRESSURE – based on current conditions use 4 PSI. Your sidewalls should wrinkle like a funny-car tire.
  • If you’re leaving ruts its too soft to ride.
  • Yield to all other users when riding.
  • Meissner Nordic helped us get our trails please help ease trail conflicts and stay off the groomed Nordic trails.

Sno-Park Permits Are Required:

  • A Sno-Park Permit is required when parking in any Oregon State Sno-Park between November 1 and April 30. Pick one up at Pine Mountain or Sunnyside.

Snowmobile Trails:

  • Its is difficult for snowmobile riders to see you. You will hear them way before they see you pull over and let them pass.
  • Stay to the far right of the trail and yield to snowmobiles.

Winter conditions can change hourly… If you’ve ridden this route recently, you can add a report to the discussion area below — or use the status update pull down at the top of the page.
