Rogers Pass Ski Touring
http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/bc/glacier/index.aspxGlacier National Park of Canada protects, for all time, a portion of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region, in the interior wet belt of British Columbia. The steep, rugged mountains, warm, moist climate and wide variety of plant and animal life are typical of this natural region. The park protects unique stands of old-growth cedar and hemlock and critical habitat for threatened and endangered wildlife species such as the mountain caribou, mountain goat and grizzly bear. The Rogers Pass National Historic Site is located in Glacier National Park. Rogers Pass was so designated for its importance in the construction and development of the country's first major national transportation route.
http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/bc/revelstoke/index.aspxExperience the range and variety of the Columbia Mountains Natural Region while exploring Mount Revelstoke National Park. Travel from valley bottom old-growth interior rainforest on the Giant Cedars Nature Trail, or lush wetland along the Skunk Cabbage Nature Trail, up the Meadows-in-the-Sky Parkway to the mountaintop experience of the summit of Mount Revelstoke. Winter is the dominant season and lingers on the summit until July or even August. During the brief summer, the mountaintop explodes into colour when its wildflower meadows bloom in mid-August. In winter, a profound silence envelopes the mountain as snow accumulates to depths of four or five metres and more.

Frisby Ultimate Downhill Trail (access rd.)
http://mountainbikingbc.ca/trail/ultimate-frisby-trailThis great downhill trail, accessed from the same logging road as the new Frisby Ridge XC trail, is one of the classic DH trails in the area. With great cliffside views of the Jordan River below (careful) and steep terrain that will have you shaking out your arms more than a few times on the descent, this trail offers up a downhill experience that will have you returning lap after lap trying to memorize each curve, berm or steep roll. Some fall maintenance and a few well placed reroutes, an improvement in flow, sightlines and drainage will make the experience on this trail even better for the upcoming season. Connect this trail after riding the new Frisby Ridge XC trail to make en epic ride that will give you mix of every kind of riding you may be looking for. A minimum of an all-mountain bike is advised for this trail. Distance Information: Elevation Information: 1100m to 600m Rating: expert DH Access: From Revelstoke go west on Highway #1, at the Hig
Sale/Martha Creek Trail
http://www.bikepirate.com/dh-trails/martha-creekThe Martha Creek (Sale Mt.) Trail is a spectacular 1580m/9km descent from alpine meadows to valley bottom. The trail is equipped with low and mid-elevation access points for early and late season rides, and the option for a 5000ft climb up logging roads to the top. Access: Starting at the Hwy1/Hwy 23N junction drive 21km north of Revelstoke. Turn right on the Sale Mountain FSR, and drive a further 15km’s of dirt road to the summit. You will need 4wd to drive the last 5km’s of this road. Specific mileage to the summit from the start of the FSR is: at 5.2km turn left. Turn right at 11.3km (you are now in a large cutblock). Turn left at 11.6km. Turn right at 12.8km. 15.7km finds you at the top of the road at the tower. The trail descends to the south. Low Elevation Access: At 5.2km turn right. Go 2.8km and turn left. Finally another 1.2km along, turn right. As of Sept. 2011 the road is washed out here, it may be passed by bikers at low water. The trail is found a few hundred meters down this road. Mid Elevation Access (not passable by vehicle): From the 11.6km junction go right and travel 2.8km to the trail intersection. The Ride: The trail drops from the tower into some technical riding right off the start. This leads into beautiful, mellow alpine meadows. Once the meadows end, so does the easy riding. Steep and fun technical riding through old growth forest and cutblocks will challenge any type of rider. Midway down, the trail gets fast and flowy with newly refurbished sidehill sections that will have your rotors smoking. The lower section slows down into technical rocks and roots, testing your bike skills along with testing your now tired arms and hands. Take your bike across the highway at the bottom and go cool off in Lake Revelstoke at the Martha Creek campground. This 5000 foot descent is one of the best you’ll find for miles around and will have you returning again and again for years to come. Notes: Summit is not snow free until early July. Please do not drift – it causes huge

Epic Alpine XC Bike Trails
Frisby Ridge Trail
http://www.bikepirate.com/x-country-trails/frisby-ridgePerhaps the most accessible alpine mountain bike trail in BC, the new Frisby Ridge Trail offers a perfect introduction to the high elevation adventure Revelstoke has to offer. Starting in a cut-block at an elevation of 1330m, this trail climbs gently but steadily for 12km before descending to a sub-alpine lake. The views along Frisby Ridge are nothing short of spectacular and there are many opportunities to stop for pictures and a rest. Once you've turned yourself around the descent back to the parking lot is a fast and flowy piece of heaven. Remember, uphill riders have the right of way so use caution when approaching the many blind corners. It is important to note that there is no water between the trailhead and the lake so riders should prepare accordingly. Access: From Revelstoke head west on Highway #1, at the Highway #23 junction (traffic lights here), turn right (north) onto Westside Road. Drive for about 8km to a point where it turns into an odd 4 way junction leading off onto gravel logging roads. To this point, don’t be fooled by the Frisby Ridge Snowmobile signs, some point the right way, some don’t! Turn left on the Frisby Ridge Road (signed as such), and there is also a tall cedar post with a small blue sign indicating “Rec Trail” with an arrow and bike symbol. All subsequent junctions are signed similarly, and will lead you 9km up the gravel road to the parking area (trailhead kiosk here). The access is 2 wheel drive accessible, but we recommend a vehicle with some clearance. Cycling from town to the trailhead adds about 2 hours and 800m of climbing. Distance Information: 12.9km one way Elevation Information: 1330m (parking lot) to 2030m (high point) Rating: intermediate XC
Keystone/Standard Basin Trail
http://mountainbikingbc.ca/trail/keystone-standard-basin-trailThe Keystone Standard Basin trail sets the standard for epic alpine rides. Only 2km of technical climbing from the parking lot and you burst into the alpine, with kilometers of buff singletrack snaking across the basin before you. The month of August sees these meadows blazing with wildflowers while every day of the year you will be surrounded snow covered peaks and distant glaciers. After several kilometers of fast singletrack and a superb climb through numerous avalanche paths you'll be treated to an eye watering descent to a sub-alpine lake. Here beside the lake is a cabin and this is were most folks will rest up before tackling the trail in reverse. Distance Information: 11km to the cabin Elevation Information: 1800m to 2200m Rating: expert XC Access: Turn off Highway #1 and drive 50kms north of Revelstoke on Highway #23N. Turn right (east) on the Keystone FSR. Drive a further 15km’s of dirt road to reach the trail head almost at tree line (road junctions are signed). The road is rough in spots but can be driven with a high clearance 2wd. This road is subject to logging traffic, a VHF radio is recommended.

Mt. Cartier Rec Trail
http://bikerevelstoke.org/enter/?page_id=2478The Mt. Cartier recreation trail has been used for many years as a great early season mt. bike ride, it is one of the first trails to melt out in the spring. More recently, the potential of this trail has begun to show itself…the hardiest of riders are riding up it to the summit of Mt. Cartier, and the more adventurous and getting a heli-drop at the summit and down-hilling it! The summit views are all time! - Access: From Revelstoke drive about 10km south on Airport Way, there is a brown trailhead kiosk on the east side of the road, park on the shoulder. - The Ride: Lower Cartier provides an undulating climb with a few steep switch-backs to a view point at 2.5km, and a very nice flowy descent. If you need to push yourself a little harder, ascend the trail for about 2000m/6500ft to the summit! The trail is reportedly about %50-75 rideable by advanced and extremely fit riders with, and for the most part is an excellent climbing grade (the original trail was built for horse drawn wagon!). The heli drop is reported to be one of the most epic rides ever, extremely long with sustained technicality. Contact one of the local helicopter companies in town for further information on aerial access. Not many riders have completed the full ascent or descent of this trail, so there is some ongoing debate as to the best choice of bikes and the merits of the trail for cycling….go check it out and send your opinion to email@example.com! - Notes. This trail is a popular hiking trail, ride with caution and be courteous to other trail users, uphill bikers and hikers have the right of way! Also, be aware the trail is maintained as a hiking trail, there is little signage and some sections of rocky and narrow trail – ride cautiously!
