"I travel a lot, but I've never had such a positive experience with a tour operator. The way you take care of your customers is really impressive. I will recommend you warmly to all my mountain biker friends!" Dominique Tamborini

Why do we require an application?

Our application process is in response to two of the most common questions our Riders have prior to booking a trip with us:

1) Am I skilled/fit enough to participate in this Ride?
2) Will the other people on my Ride be skilled/fit enough?

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them. That's why we want to know a bit more about you - your mountain biking history, where you ride, how often, etc... - before we take your money.

We review every application and if, based on your responses, we think you're a good fit, we'll approve your application and you'll receive a link to place a deposit. If we think you might not be a good fit (either too skilled or not skilled enough for the Ride you chose), then we'll give you a call to discuss your preferences in greater detail.

Please note: our application process isn't about excluding anyone, or making anyone feel like they're not 'good enough' to participate in one of our Rides. It's about ensuring that you end up on the right Ride for you, with people of similar skill, fitness and riding preferences. In the end this ends up being a much better experience for everyone.

In the late 1800s, early explorers in interior British Columbia discovered gold in the mountains near Rossland. A gold rush ensued, giving birth to the Dewdney Trail (which brought gold seekers from the U.S.) and a scattering of gold rush towns.

The gold didn't last, but those explorers had the gracious foresight to leave some incredible mountain bike trails in their wake (thanks, eh), including the aforementioned Dewdney Trail, a beautiful, winding descent just above Rossland.

You'll find your own gold on our Ultimate BC trip - golden sunsets over spectacular vistas, the town of Golden and its incredible shuttle runs, that 'golden feeling' of completing the epic Seven Summits trail and its 6 hours of challenging alpine bliss.

This trip is for the true mountain bike nut - 13 days of riding our handpicked selection of interior British Columbia's best trails. Fernie and its massive trail network. Rossland and the Seven Summits. New Denver and remote, hidden trails. Revelstoke and its alpine classics. Golden and the spectacular Canyon Creek Trail.

IS THIS RIDE FOR YOU?

This Ride is for you if you love to ride, and love big rides. You don't mind a big climb if it's going to get you a spectacular view and an amazing downhill. You can climb up to 2,000 vertical metres/day at a moderate pace, and can handle technical terrain such as roots, rocks and obstacles up to 10" high. You like to ride hard and come back to a nice hot shower and a yummy dinner at a lodge.

Check out our Peace of Mind Policies

Day 1. Arrive Calgary/Fernie

Your guide will meet you at Calgary Airport and drive the group to our lodge in Fernie. This is our base for the next few days of Fernie trail riding. Tonight we'll dine in one of Fernie's excellent restaurants.

Day 2. A first day in Fernie

After a good sleep and hearty breakfast you'll build your bikes and we'll spend the 1st morning working on mountain bike skills with our instrcutors. More advanced riders will work on advanced skills, while less experinced riders will work on intermediate skills. After returning to the lodge for lunch, we'll head up to the Ridgemont area where a huge spiderweb of trails offers up plenty of options for singletrack fun! We'll return to the lodge at around 5:00 pm. Tonight's dinner will be a communal one, as we get to know each other around the kitchen!

Day 3. Fun in Fernie

After breakfast, we'll ride right from our lodge to the skills park for another morning of instruction. After a full morning of skills work, we'll stop for lunch and fuel up for a big afternoon of biking. We'll head out for another crack at the trails of Fernie, then we'll head back to the lodge for a late afternoon drink on the deck before dinner.

Day 4. Rest Day in Fernie

After breakfast at the lodge, we'll have an optional morning ride up Dem Bones or another skills session. After returning to the lodge for lunch, you'll have the rest of the day off to explore the wonderful town of Fernie. There are myriad options for outdoor fun in this recreational paradise, including river tubing, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, chairlift-assisted riding at Fernie Alpine Resort, fly fishing - you name it!

Day 5. Rubberheads and Smugglers

After a scenic 4-hour drive through Kootenay Pass, we arrive at the town of Rossland. A myriad of shuttle opportunities (using our van) will allow us to do up to 7 trails in this mountain bike paradise

Day 6. Seven Summits

Seven Summits is one of the best trails in Canada, and has recently been voted one of the 'Top 10 trails in the world.' The trail is an epic - up to 8 hours - and, like the name suggests, we visit 7 mountain tops in the Rossland area. This is alpine singletrack at its absolute best!

Day 7. Rest Day in the Kootenays

Situated in the Selkirk Mountains, on the shores of Kootenay Lake and overlooking Kokanee Glacier, Nelson is one of the prettiest towns in all of British Columbia. We'll spend the morning enjoying the sights and sounds of Nelson and have lunch in town before heading to the beaches of Kootenay Lake and then stop in at Ainsworth Hot Springs before heading to the pretty - and remote - town of New Denver.

Day 8. Sweet Slocan Singletrack

Situated deep in the Slocan Valley, New Denver is the jewel of the Kootenays: a charming mountain town surrounded by massive peaks, on the shore of a spectacular lake. We'll spend the day exploring these trails before driving to our lodge in Revelstoke.

Day 9. Alpine Bliss

It's time to tackle another epic: the Keystone Standard Basin ride in Revelstoke. This incredible ride is an hour's drive into the backcountry north of Revelstoke, alongside Lake Revelstoke. The ride itself is 6 hours of sheer alpine bliss: buffed singletrack and jaw-dropping scenery. After the ride, we'll head back to our lodge for a BBQ dinner.

Day 10. Revelstoke riding/Roger's Pass

The singletrack on Mt. Macpherson is everything an avid mountain biker could want: challenging climbs, fun downhills, and a huge network to satisfy all levels. After the morning's ride, we'll hop in the van for the 90-minute drive to Golden via spectacular Roger's Pass and the Illicilaweat Glacier. We'll spend the next 2 nights at our deluxe lodge in the mountains.

Day 11. Canyons and Campfires

Today we ride in Golden on the 'Moonraker' trails. These smooth trails leave right from the campsite and feature spectacular 2000-ft-deep canyon scenery and challenging climbs.

Day 12. Golden grins

Definitely a big-grin day with some major vertical descent and technical delights on offer! We'll have breakfast at the camp, load our gear and bikes and then drive to the summit of 'Mount Seven', Golden's premier ride, which rears 1300 metres (4000-ft) up above the Columbia Valley. When we're done here we head into Golden for lunch and load up the van for the drive to Kananaskis. We take time out en route with a stopover in the beautiful and world-famous town of Banff.

Day 13. The best %*#@^!# trail ever !!!

The 'pot of gold' ride, this is the incredible, amazing, scintillating and stunning Jumping Pound / Cox Hill Ride. Rated in several guidebooks as one of the best rides in the whole of North America, this incredible trail will live on in your dreams for years after you ride it! We finish riding in the early afternoon and with huge grins fixed on our faces and a sad tear in our eye, we'll hop in the van for a quick ride back to Calgary. Tonight we stay in a Calgary hotel and celebrate the best riding we've ever likely experienced, drink a beer (or two) with our new friends and relive the many, many highlights of a simply fantastic trip.

  • 12 nights accommodation
  • Breakfasts and Lunches and 2 dinners
  • 2 experienced local guides
  • Transportation in our air-conditioned 12-passenger van
  • Admission to hotsprings and national parks
  • Bike maintenance and repair toolset during the trip

Arrival and Departure Airport

You should fly into and out of Calgary International Airport (YYC). Please see the schedule page for the exact pickup dates and times for your particular trip. Please note: we do not book flights for our Riders - contact your local travel agent or use an online flight booking site to book your flights to Calgary.

Pickup & Drop-off Information

We offer free airport pickup and dropoff service to Calgary airport. The pickup point is Meeting Point A, at the information counter at the domestic arrivals area.

Our driver and/or guides will meet you at Calgary airport at 4:00pm sharp. The shuttle will depart no later than 5:00pm (it is a 3-hour drive to Fernie and we typically have tired people who have been flying for most of the day). If you are experiencing delays with your flights, please call our BC office at +1.250.278-0054 as soon as possible, or call our toll-free line at 1-888-423-7849 (within North America). Please write down these numbers and keep them with you when you are travelling.

If you are unable to make it to the shuttle, you will have to arrange alternate transportation to Fernie. Please see 'extending your trip' below for information about private shuttles and the Greyhound bus.

On the last day of the trip, we ride until about 2:00 pm, then drive to Calgary (we will not be returning to Canmore) for aiport dropoff (if you are staying at the Sandman Airport Inn Calgary, we will drop you off at the shuttle area for free pickup). N.B. if you are planning on flying home on the last night of the trip, we recommend you not book anything departing before 7:00 pm, to take into account any unexpected delays.

After dropping people off at the airport, the van will return to Fernie, arriving at approximately 8 pm. If you have made your own way to Fernie for the start of the trip and need to return to get to your vehicle, you are welcome to join our guides on the return to Fernie, free of charge.

Extending Your Trip

If you want to extend your trip by arriving early or staying on after your trip, there are a few things you should know:

  1. We can arrange special pickups if you are arriving before the scheduled pickup date, however the price for a private shuttle is expensive ($400 CAN). An alternative is taking the Greyhound bus to Fernie from Calgary. There are 2 buses/day: departing 6:30 am, arriving 12:05 pm
    departing 10:10 pm, arriving 3:05 am
    If you are taking the bus, please let us know and we'll arrange to have a taxi meet you at the bus depot for the five-minute drive to our lodge.
  2. You can book accommodation at the Sandman Airport Inn in Calgary before or after your trip. Please contact the Sandman Airport Inn.
  3. If you want information on places to visit and things to see in British Columbia or the Banff area after/before your trip, here are a couple of useful websites:
    Tourism British Columbia
    Banff National Park website

    Many of our clients choose to visit the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise area after their trip. The easiest way to do this is to arrange a shuttle to Banff or Canmore when you get to the Calgary airport. These can be booked onsite or in advance by visiting the Banff Airport Taxi website

Trip Cancellations

You may cancel your reservation with no penalty within 7 days of booking. After the first week, our cancellation policy goes into effect.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance, including emergency evacuation coverage, is compulsory for all our tours. We recommend that you purchase travel insurance that includes cancellation protection so that you will be covered in the event that you are unable to attend our tour (due to injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstances) or in the unlikely event that our tour must be cancelled.

You can purchase insurance from our partners at bikeflights.com via our insurance page.

Bike Rentals

If you don't feel like hauling your bike to BC, an alternative is renting a bike. We have partnered with Straight Line Bikes to offer reliable Santa Cruz full-suspension bikes for rent.These are quality all-mountain bikes, purchased new each year, and built to handle the demanding terrain of British Columbia. Price is $650 Cdn for the duration of the trip. This can be booked online when making your initial booking, or added later. We recommend booking your bike rental at least 2 months in advance to ensure we have your size available.

please note: rental bikes come with flat pedals. If you are used to riding with SPDs, we recommend bringing your pedals and shoes with you - we'll swap the pedals when you arrive.

Travelling with your bike

If you've never traveled with your bike, don't worry - it's much easier than you think! If you don't have a case for your bike, we recommend one of two options:

1) if you think you may be travelling more than once with your bike, then we recommend purchasing a purpose-made bike bag. This will protect your bike from damages, and makes shlepping your bike around a little bit easier than with a rigid box or cardboard box. We sell beautiful handmade bags by PikaPackworks in the United States. For more information, visit our online store.

2) If you think this is the only trip you'll take with your bike for a while, then you can pick up a cardboard travel box for your bike at your local store. Some stores will also pack your bike up for you for a fee.

Alternately, you can courier your bike to Straight Line Bikes in Fernie. For $40 they will take delivery of your bike and assemble it (there is no charge if you don't want them to assemble the bike). We will pick up your bike and have it waiting for you at our lodge. Please visit their website for contact information and notify them in advance that you are shipping your bike, and also notify our office.

What type of bike should you bring?

We recommend you bring a solid all-mountain bike with you on this trip, with at least 4-5" of travel, and no heavier than 30 pounds since there are several long climbs. A bike with at least 2 chainrings up front is mandatory, as is front suspension.

Tools to bring

  • multitool (preferably with chainbreaker)
  • tire levers
  • bottle of chain lube
  • tire pump
  • suspension pump

Spare parts for your bike 

Although there are some parts available locally, we recommend you bring the following parts and gear with you to avoid problems in case of breakdown or broken parts:

  • rear derailleur hanger (at least 1, preferably 2)
  • extra set of front and rear brake pads
  • extra chain if your chain is more than 6 months old
  • 4 tubes
  • 4 extra spokes

N.B. If you are renting a bike, the above is not necessary (with the exception of a few spare tubes).

Assembling your bike when you arrive

We have bike stands and a full toolset available for assembling your bike once you arrive. You can build your bike the night you arrive, or the next morning. We will have a prearranged time for building bikes and our staff are on hand for assistance.

Accommodation

Accommodation during this trip is in beautiful locally-owned lodges and hotels, on a shared basis. You will be paired with a roommate of the same sex for the duration of the trip. If you would like a single room to yourself, you can pay the single supplement fee during the booking process.

Trip Additions

We have a few add-ons that will make your trip even more memorable. These can be added when you make your booking or added later:

  • post-ride therapeutic massage with a RMT(1 hour): $100 Cdn

Weather and Clothing

The weather in the Rocky mountains can be quite cool in the evenings, and at higher altitudes during the day, with lows between 10 and 18 degrees Celsius, so we recommend you bring long pants and a jacket for the evenings. Daytime highs are usually quite warm, with highs between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. We recommend you bring some type of shell to keep you warm and dry at higher altitudes in case of inclement weather.

Packing List

  • comfortable clothes for riding, such as biking jerseys and padded shorts. 3+ sets are ideal, 2 is a must.
  • helmet
  • bike gloves (2 sets is ideal)
  • lightweight, weather-resistant outerwear for riding in inclement weather.
  • warm clothing such as sweaters and fleece jackets and pants for nighttime.
  • swimwear
  • sunglasses/eye protection for sunny and/or muddy days.
  • hydration system that can carry at least 2 litres (bottles and/or hydration pack)
  • toiletries i.e. toothbrush, shampoo, soap
  • towel
  • camera
  • sunscreen and insect repellent

Passports & Visas

All travelers require a valid passport (with a minimum of 6 months validity). Citizens of some countries will also require a visa. For more information, please contact your local Canadian embassy, or passport office.

Emergency Contacts

If you need to contact us in an emergency, you can reach us during office hours at the following numbers:

Dialing within North America: 1 (888) 423-7849
Dialing outside of North America: +1 (647) 999-7955

Fitness Requirements

You should have a moderately high level of fitness and be able to bike for up to four hours a day in order to fully enjoy the spectacular scenery and riding on this Ride We recommend you train in advance in order to get the most out of your adventure.

We also recommend that you wear minimal jewelry and that you keep valuable items safely stored. Always keep a copy of your passport, airline tickets, travelers checks and credit card numbers separate from where you keep the originals.

Meals

On this trip, all breakfasts and lunches are included in the trip price, as well as one dinner at Glaicer House Resort in Revelstoke. Dinners can be taken in local restaurants or you can use the kitchens at our lodges (when available). You should budget $10 Cdn per meal prepared in-kitchen, or $15-$20 per dinner in local restaurants (depending on the quality of restaurants you choose).

Other expenses

Aside from meals, there are no required additional expenses for this trip, but you might like to take spending money for such things as souvenir shopping, nightlife and Internet cafes. The easiest way to deal with spending money is to withdraw money from an ATM/bank machine, which are readily available.

Laundry

All of the lodges and hotels on this trip have laundry service.

Internet

All of the towns where we are staying have internet cafés, and most of our accommodations also have wireless internet access on-site.

Ensuring that you - and the other Riders on your Ride - are a good fit for the Ride selected is of paramount importance to us. We want to help you pick the Ride that's perfect for you, and ensure that everyone booked on a Ride is on the right Ride for them.
