Our trails vary in difficulty from mellow beginner trails to steep and technical expert trails. Our guides take pride in matching the desires and abilities of our guests with the most appropriate trails and tours. Just tell us a bit about yourself and we’ll be able to pick the perfect ride for you, no matter what your skill level!

That being said... Mountain bike trails in BC tend to be tougher and more technical than many other places around the world. That’s what makes the riding here so great! But it can also be a struggle or even become dangerous if you're not prepared. Believe us, we’ve witness many riders get humbled by our big-mountain trails! When deciding which of our trips or trails are right for you and you group, please be seriously realistic of the riding ability and fitness of yourself and everyone in your group.

Read our Skill and Fitness Ratings for more info.

We recommend using your own trusty mountain bike; however bike rentals are available for those who need through our local bike shop Skookum Cycle and Ski. A selection of Kona XC and all-mountain bikes are available as well as a limited selection of DH bikes.

Call Skookum at 1-250-814-0090 to reserve your rental.

Revelstoke and the Kootenay region are located in an inland temporate rainforest. The same deep powder that we enjoy in the winter sometimes falls in its wetter form during mountain bike season, especially in the spring and fall. Thankfully, most mountain bikers aren't made of sugar. In fact, many of our best rides end with soggy shoes and a muddy grin! During the summer months of July and August and into September, we are generally blessed with great weather! Most days are sunny and somewhere in the 20-30° Celsius range. In July it is common to see temps above 30 deg. Celcius.

Please, watch the weather before the day of your tour and be prepared for a potentially wet ride. Tours, lessons and shuttles will only be cancelled due to severe thunderstorms or prolonged periods of intense rain, in which case, a full refund and/or rescheduled tour will be offered.

No problem! We offer custom mountain bike guiding services so you can hire your very own guide by the hour or by the day. You can also consider joining one of our All-Inclusive Mountain Bike Vacations and you’ll have an unforgettable experience meeting new friends and riding the best trails in BC!

All of our day tours and some of our shuttles are based on a minimum number of riders. We can sometimes combine solo riders with other groups or individuals if it is feasible or you can try checking in with the bike shops to see if they know of any other riders looking to partner up.

You bet we do! Our Day Tours are specifically designed for small private groups and on top of that you can book any one of our Skills Clinics or All-Inclusive Mountain Bike Vacations for your private group, with custom dates available. We can also arrange customized guided trips, tours or lessons for your private group. Contact us for more info.
