      A single track stacked loop system, on the Pass Powderkeg ski hill in Blairmore that extends to the summit ridge with great views to the West.

      At the trailhead you will find a skills park for a little diversion.

      There is a very nice mix of high-quality, cross country trail that will take you to the top of the hill with viewpoints of Turtle Mt and peaks on the Divide. A number of options are available around mid-hill so you can mix it up.

      Berma-Grin, Spare Change and Roots O'Hazard are downhill only; all other trail can be ridden in either direction. However, Buck 50 is very popular in the downhill direction, so uphill riders and hikers should be prepared and should avoid the most popular times (weekend afternoons).
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: City Managed
      Access Info:
      Albert Stella Arena at 17 Ave. and 127 St in Blairmore
      Disclaimer:
      E-Bikes must be Class 1 (pedal assist, maximum 32 km/h assist). Please show courtesy to other riders especially when wanting to pass on a climb.
      No shuttling on the ski hill above the parking lot.
