Whattaya think about snowbike impact on ski trails?

Curious.

Basically they're staying off ski trails around here. The IMBA policy of "don't ride on classic ski tracks" seems very good.

However, we're running into issues with multi-user trails. And with fatties make a U-profile that messes up other users.

It seems that singletrack grooming and fattie behavior of not riding when trail is soft enough that they make an impact would do the trick and help everyone. There is some momentum to this approach. But apparently so far not enough groomers to go around and not enough leadership in the fatty scene.
