      Rossland has a long history of mountain biking and is acclaimed as one of North America's top mountain biking destinations. In fact, it has acquired the reputation as 'The mountain biking capital of Canada', with its enormous variety of specialty built trails, from swooping, buffed singletrack to rock-armored, free-ride lines, to the 36 km, Seven Summits epic, there is the perfect ride for all types and abilities. Some of our favorite rides involve combining multiple shorter trails into a blissful circuit, while others, such as the historic Dewdney, or Whiskey trails take a single classic line.

      Rossland also hosts a wealth of winter trails, including over 45 km of expertly groomed trails in the Black Jack XC Ski Club network, as well as a variety of ungroomed trails and an abundance of backcountry day-use cabins in the Rossland Range Recreation Site.
