This riding area has one of the most surreal landscapes I have visited on the planet. It’s crazy to think that this terrain has always been so close to my home and yet I had no idea it existed. In mountain biking, we crave the wide-open landscapes just as much as we crave a tight, single track. Traditionally, rock slabs were short, intermittent sections that gave us thrills, however, what we found was huge, steep slabs with endless traction to push our boundaries. In this region, the possibilities are endless, as the entire area is nothing but granite slabs, eroded smoothly by the earth’s last glacial era, creating one of the most stunning landscapes to take a bike and explore BC’s raw backcountry…

Riding in this area is a limitless exploration of what a bike and rider can do. The views, the location, the terrain – it’s a singular experience found nowhere else on earth. Ian sets a new precedent for what a guided backcountry experience can be.

Thomas Burden (source: Guide’s web )

Granite slabs as far as the eye can see. Mountain biking’s most comparable thing to the best day of powder skiing. Infinite line choices on massive terrain.

Jimmy Martinello (source: Guide’s web )

Some of the wildest riding on the planet, an alpine granite domain. I’ve ridden bikes around the world and this tops the list…. Golden granite slabs for thousands of feet, surrounded by crystal clear fresh water glaciated lakes, high above old growth forests. Everyday brings endless adventure, the boundaries are set only by your personal limits and desires. Freaking spectacular everywhere you look and ride. I look forward to returning one day soon. To all that get the chance, this is a trip of a lifetime!
