We’ll kick off Stage 2 in Golden by showcasing the Mtn. Shadows trail network. The stage starts in the Town Centre at Spirit Square, and after some road climbing to spread the group out, riders will be treated to the Schacher Trail, a brand new machine built singletrack climb up the slopes of Mount 7. New this year, the Schacher Trail has been extended higher up the slopes of Mount 7 showcasing more of this legendary biking mountain!

From there, it’s onto the Mount 7 DH trail for the timed descent, a fast and steep bomb down to the main Mountain Shadows network. Be sure to hone your skills for this one as we’ll be featuring technical rocky trails like Cliff Side and Rock About. We’ll end the day back in Golden with a finish in Spirit Square on the banks of the Kicking Horse River. 

All routes are subject to change at any time to allow for quality control, the safety of the riders and wildlife.

A hip addition to Mt 7's infamous Snake Hill. Build and flight test of one of the hips.
