The course is split into three loops that start and end at Kimberley Alpine Resort. The trails and amazing and the climbs are daunting. 50k solos have 12 hours to finish. 100k solos and teams have 24 hours and repeat the same loop. Don't like loop courses? Wait until you see these trails before you say that! The vertical climb goes from the base of the hill to just past Kootenay House and back.
