      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.

      Electric Monkey, Nothing to Luge, Berma-Grin, Spare Change and Roots O'Hazard are downhill only; all other trails 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).

      The climbing route from the Skills Park to the top is Little Shred Riding Hood; Double Dirt-Spresso, and Chainsaw Massacre. Knotty Flo and Jiffy Pop provide alternate routes as they bypass part of Double Dirt-Spresso.

      From the mid-hill parking at the ski lodge, climb 100 m on 75 Cents, 100 m on Dale Strandquist double track, then 300 m on Alberta Summer Games to the top of DoubleDirt Spresso.

      If you're riding an e-bike or like really steep climbs, the mid hill lodge and parking lot can be reached quickly by riding up the Luge Run.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: City Managed
      Land Manager: Municipality of Crowsnest Pass
