Mountain Biking in the Kootenay Alpine

Posted on August 24, 2011 by NRG

It has taken forever this year, and in quite a few bowls and ridges the snow still remains but a lot of the incredible alpine around Nelson has started to open up and offer up some great big rides! Past weekend offered up 12,710 ft of descending in two rides!

After an incredible day it was decided that more was needed and we headed off to Rossland to do another great Kootenay descent. From the Seven summits trail most people pedal right by Old Glory but there is an incredible ride from the top of that bad boy all the way down to the Columbia river.

Feels so good to up high in the mtns and ripping singletrack that only gets ridden a handful of times a year. Sadly the days are getting shorter but there is still plenty of time to get some more great rides in. Hope you are doing the same!
