      Smithers riding is unique, offering a full range of experiences. From high alpine singletrack to trails winding through the northern forest landscape, Smithers hosts a blend of rugged, steep technical terrain combined with new school all-mountain flow. The Smithers Mountain Bike Association manages three trail networks in partnership with the Province:

      Typically, the Bluff opens in early May, followed by the Ptarmigan network. The Piper and Backdoor areas typically open by mid-June. The riding season usually ends in early November.
