      Desous is a 1/2 hour drive west of the City and is home to some truly amazing free riding. Decents of 3500ft from the top of Desous Mountain all the way to the Fraser River make this home to some of the biggest lines this side of Golden. This area is intended for advanced riders, as there is no real easy way down. If you're looking for big lines, this is where it's at. Cell phone service is spotty in this area, so please ride safely.
