Follow the route to the Minnewanka Loop, riding and gradually…
An after work staff favorite, this out and back ride is sure to impress. Numerous pullouts on this scenic low speed highway, and lots of wildlife sightings make this ride very special. Go all the way to the junction or turn around when you feel like it. Normally has a tail wind on the way back, but can be a bit gusty on the way west.
Who would have thought that skiing down a super mellow green run would be an enabler for your powder addiction, but a slide down Pika is the gateway to the hidden gem Pika Trees. It may take a couple of laps to spot the twig of a stick sporting a double black sign off to the right of the trail, but when you do, buckle up for a wild ride through some of the best tree skiing the Rockies has to offer.

On big snow days, local rippers in the know head to Norquay and go directly to the North American. This double, known affectionately as The Big Chair, is a local secret that has been serving up some of the steepest, most consistent fall lines in the Rockies since 1946. Runs like Gun Run, North American Bowl and the infamous Lone Pine are legend makers.
