Perhaps not surprisingly I use it most once it snows but I'll ride it all year depending on the days ride. It depends on my mood and if the trail is sandy or flat or has some bushwhacking or big technical features. It also depends on who I ride with, e.g. A fat bike group ride or some of my less experienced buddies that i'll take out riding. It's a really fun trail bike but to be perfectly honest in the absence of snow I almost always chose my FS 29er for most trail riding because it's so fast and light and the ride is plush. I can go a lot faster and longer but it stays home in the winter.

I'll also commute with the fat bike on the snowy days, I choose that over the skinny tire studded cross bike which is best suited for dry, plowed, or icy conditions.
