Big Mountain Culture

Breathe the fresh mountain air as you take in 360-degree views of the Kootenay Rockies. This area of British Columbia is known for its endless alpine trails, flowing descents, unique towns and colourful people. Built on a historic passion for skiing and outdoor adventure, the towns we visit – Castlegar, Nelson, New Denver, Nakusp, and Revelstoke – have embraced mountain biking and made it their own.

You will find yourself charging down descents you couldn’t have even imagined when you woke up to the mountain views from your accommodations. Twelve distinct trail networks will offer you the full range of riding available in this region. From mountain tops to valley floors, the trails range from fast and flowy to challenging and technical. When you return to town tired and exhausted from an incredible day, you will be enveloped by the comforts and entertainment of the communities – each as unique as their individuals. From chilly mountain peaks to warm local’s hangouts – Ride Kootenays is all about big mountain culture.
