The Mt. ****** trail is one of the most iconic helibiking trails on the planet! From its incredible rocky summit to the Columbia River below, this 100% singletrack trail measures in at 17km in length with a little over 7000 feet of descending! A must ride!

Why helibike with us?

  • We are Revelstoke’s original helibike tour operator and we have more helibiking experience than anyone!
  • We know this trail better than anyone else and we work with only the most experienced helicopter pilots!
  • We give back to this trail more than anyone! For the past 5 years we’ve been organizing trail crews to maintain and improve the quality of this unique trail!
  • We are Revelstoke’s only certified and tenured mtb guiding company. Our skilled and professional guides are knowledgeable, fun, and personable.

How your day will unfold:

  • Meet at our shop downtown for a safety briefing and grab a delicious bagged lunch to put in your riding pack.
  • We'll drive you out to the hangar and load up for a stunning 10 minute flight above town and over the Columbia River towards the summit of Mt. ******.
  • Enjoy an exhilarating approach to our exclusive high landing helipad where your guide will help you out of the helicopter and safely unload your bikes and backpacks while you take photos or just sit back and take it all in!
  • After a short scramble to the summit, we’ll get on the bikes and start shredding! The upper slopes of the Mt. ****** trail features several tight switchbacks and extremely steep sidehills, so stay in control and keep your eyes on the trail.
  • We’ll stop for lunch about halfway down the trail at a lookout spot near an old ranger station.
  • Continue to ride right to valley bottom where we’ll have our shuttle truck waiting with a cooler full of cold drinks. You’ve earned one!
  • To keep the good times rolling, ask your guide about where to go for the best food and drinks in town. We have connections with all the best spots and we get premium reservations and seating service during the busy summer months.
