MTB Road Trip
The best way to finish off our four week course is to take to the road with your new skills, your new friends and your bike. British Columbia has a wealth of amazing riding and with your fitness dialled and your advanced riding skills you'll be in just the right position to make the most of it. We have designed a truly awesome week that combines riding epic MTB locations, camping in stunning locations, swimming in lakes, barbecues on the beach, and nights out in new towns. This may just be the week of your life.
Travel due west to Rossland in the morning (a 4 hour drive) and after some lunch ride “Oasis Trail” from Rossland to the town of Trail. This is a flowing trail that's mostly flat or downhill so that we can conserve our energy for the big ride on Day 2. That night we'll set up camp in Rossland which is a beautiful western town with some great restaurants, cafes, shops and pubs.

... whilst riding the many epic trails on offer
Today we'll tackle the famous “Seven summits trail” in Rossland. This is an IMBA (Int. Mountain Bike Association) designated 'Epic trail' and people travel all over the world to complete it. It's a big ride and lots of fun. That night we'll stay in comfortable accommodation at the base of Red Mountain ski resort, which will be much deserved after such an accomplishment.

Stay in classic western towns
This is a rest day - a welcome one! In the morning we'll travel north west to Penticton (4 hours away) and hit the beach on Lake Okanagan for the afternoon before setting up camp on the edge of the stunning Lake Skaha.
We'll head two hours north to Silver Star, a local ski resort that has a renowned bike park. After a day of sessioning new trails we'll set up camp and enjoy a barbecue and chilling out in the sun.
Ride Silver Star for a second day and then travel in the evening towards Rogers Pass. On the way we'll stop for dinner in the cool town of Revelstoke. That night we'll camp at Rogers Pass in the truly stunning 'Glacier National Park'.
In the morning we'll head one hour east to the town of Golden and then spend the day riding the epic trails at Kicking Horse. Once we've had our fill of their trails, we'll drive two hours south to Panorama ski resort where we'll camp for the night.
In the morning we'll ride at Panorama before heading home to Fernie, stopping on the way at the White Swan thermal hot springs. With seven days of travelling through British Columbia and riding awesome new trails almost every day, you'll be ready for the comfort of the Red Tree Lodge before flying home the next day (or stay on if you simply can't get enough!).
