The 2016 Singletrack 6 will kick off with Stage 1 on the southeast side of town in the Castle and Ridgemont networks. The stage will start with our traditional downtown roll-out before tackling the classic Hyperventilation climb and the timed descent on Hyperextension. From there it’s on to some more great new trails: Kush, Kushier, and Kushiest. Then it’s back on the classic and fun Coal Discovery trail, and one more climb up through Sidewinder, Eric’s and Kid’s Stuff. We finish up with a challenging run down Hessian and Broken Hip into the finish at the Fernie Aquatic Centre.

      Going clockwise from the barn there is still a fair bit of snow up to the high point. The trail is then good down past the hut down to Cokato other than two muddy bermed corners that aren't draining well. It's good for a lot of the way back to the Montane Trailhead with a few snow patches.

      Top section of resurrection towards River Road is all good dirt..... after crossing the little bridge on the way down there's a bunch of snow but you can walk through the ditch to the road and finish down the access road.
