Experienced all-mountain and enduro riders are best suited for this trip. We will spend four days in a row exploring Revelstoke's spectacular alpine trails and crushing big all-mountain rides with huge descents! We will access the alpine via truck or heli shuttles each day and on average, we will descend more than double what we climb! But don't worry; there are still several huge climbs to challenge you! Bring lots of energy and a big sense of adventure along on this trip, you will need it!
Check in, get comfortable and get stoked! Check-in starts at 4pm, dinner will be served at 7pm. Meet your guides and discuss your rides while getting acquainted with some delicious offerings from our local brewery. Take advantage of our shop to build your bikes or fine tune them for the rides ahead.
After a delicious breakfast, grab a packed lunch and we will shuttle up to the Frisby Ridge XC trailhead where we will start a long gradual climb to the alpine. Have lunch at the top of the trail right next to a beautiful alpine lake and take in the views in all directions! Fueled up, we shred back down this buffed out rollercoaster-ride of a trail and continue on to the Ultimate Frisby DH Trail to ride right to valley bottom. A ride totalling 30km with roughly 2500ft of climbing and 5000ft of descending! A cold beer awaits us at the bottom of this trail before we head back to the lodge for après snacks, followed by dinner service at 7pm.
After another hearty breakfast, grab a packed lunch to go and we will head out to Mt. Macpherson for a few hours of XC and all-mountain riding, featuring challenging climbs and fun descents. We will get dropped at the far end of Mt. Macpherson Trails and gradually make our way back towards town, hitting up all the best trails on the way. We ride right to the Big Eddy Pub, a classic Revelstoke hangout, for lunch (this lunch is not included in your trip costs). Then we will load up and travel a few minutes north of town and shuttle right to the top of Sale Mountain to drop in on the Epic Martha Creek Trail, a 5000ft descent over 9kms! We ride right to the beach today where après snacks and drinks will be waiting. Dinner will be served back at the lodge at 7pm.
Today's ride is going to be entirely pedal-powered, so fuel up with breakfast and grab a lunch to go. We will drive 50km's north of Revelstoke along a scenic and winding mountain highway and then 15km up the mountain to the Keystone Standard Basin Trailhead. This is a big ride and it is hands-down our favourite bike ride ever! Lunch break will be at the Keystone Cabin, which serves as our turnaround point in the trail. Cold beer and snacks will be awaiting our return at the truck. More après snacks await our return to the lodge, and then we'll get ready to hit the town! Visit some local shops, check out the live nightly music in the plaza and enjoy dinner out at one of our favourite Revelstoke restaurants (tonight's dinner is not included in your trip costs).
Today's ride will be a special one! After breakfast, we'll get ready to jump in a helicopter for a scenic flight to the top of the 17km, 7000 vertical foot Mt. Cartier Trail! After our morning on the summit we will descend this huge trail, stopping for lunch at a lookout area halfway down, home to an old ranger station. Stashed cold beers await us near valley bottom and then we'll spin out the last few km's of the trip on a serenely peaceful riverside roadway back to the lodge. Grab some après snacks and then unfortunately, it's time to get packed and say goodbyes. Check out by 4pm.
