Rocky Mountain put together this fatbike freeride video featuring their Blizzard.
… to shred snowy trails. As proven by Rocky Mountain‘s newest ripper, Carson Storch.

Rocky Mountain was the first company to take a stab at the 27.5+ tire size, with 2.8″ tires mounted to 45mm rims appearing on their Sherpa concept bike at the Sea Otter show this time last year. After a year of further tweaking, an under-the-radar appearance on Gabe Tiller’s Pushwacking the Idaho Hot Springs Route story under engineer Lyle Vallie, and all the refinement necessary to bring this new platform to market, the production version of the Sherpa “overland” bike is ready to hit the shop floor.
To accompany the launch of their new Sherpa Overland bikepacking platform, Rocky Mountain bikes worked with Brian Vernor to produce a short film on Arizona’s Black Canyon Trail. These Canadian freeriders and XC racers are surely out of their element in the hot desert sun, but the vibe is right and this one should get the stoke going for a weekend adventure.
What is it, the first day of winter? Apparently that means it’s time to release all things fatbike in Canada. Here’s a sweet video of Rocky Mountain’s freeride legends on their Blizzard fatbike in the BC backcountry, with some great photos below.
