Is winter fat-biking your new winter sport? Winter fat biking has wide appeal, and it’s starting to grow in Chenango. There are no special skills or training required, and youth and adults alike can participate in a fun sport that promotes outdoor fitness and adventure.

Free snowmobile maps are just one way we say ‘Welcome’ to the Chenango County trails, and snowmobilers rule this time of the year.

In Whaupaunaucau State Forest, enjoy 1,188 acres for x-country skiing. A 13-mile x-country ski trail winds through natural forests and plantations.
