RANGELEY FAT BIKE LOPPET COURSE DESCRIPTION
The Rangeley Fat Bike Loppetcourse takes advantage of the beautiful varied terrain we have available here at the Trails Center, from wide straight-a-ways to gradual ascent and descents, to some aggressive hill climb/descent opportunities. Views and possible wildlife sightings are included! We have held a cross country ski marathon at this venue for the past 10+ years, drawing competitors from the east coast and beyond.
The course is a mix of some single track and mostly wide open groomed trails. We groom with a pisten bully with a power tiller, and will shoot for a nice firm corduroy. Course length may be adjusted based on snow conditions should we have some weathah before the race.
Our stadium (bigger than a football field) provides an excellent venue for mass starts and great visibility for an exciting finish. There is a sidehill overlooking the stadium that also provides a perfect vantage point for spectators. There are several places along the course that are in the vicinity of our yurt lodge that also provide good places for cheering/spectating.
