Empire 47 est, en hiver, la destination fat bike la plus fréquentée au monde. En été, elle est la station préférée des petites familles qui y trouvent une offre de sentiers équilibrée, permettant une saine progression, en allant de pistes faciles et fluides jusqu’à des tracés beaucoup plus abrupts et accidentés. Le secteur cross-country offre peu de dénivelé, tandis que la montagne offre de nombreuses pistes d’enduro, à partir de deux points de départ principaux. Les jeunes adorent s’amuser dans les zones d’habileté près de l’accueil et dans l’immense piste de pompe récemment aménagée.
Empire 47 is the most popular fat bike hub in the world in winter. In the summer, it is the favorite destination for small families, who find a well-balanced trail offer, allowing for a healthy progression, from easy and fluid trails to much steeper and more rugged routes. The cross-country area offers little elevation change, while the mountain offers many enduro trails from two main starting points. Kids love to play in the skill zones near the welcome center and on the huge new pump track.
