This route takes in every mountain bike trail at the Pass Powderkeg Ski hill in Blairmore (Crowsnest Pass). This involves two climbs and descents from the top on Spare Change/Roots O'Hazard, and, to save the best for the last run, Buck 50. In between there is a descent on the flow trail, Berma-Grin, and a short descent on the technical Trick or Tree. Because of the layout, some of the climbs get repeated. However, the optional technical features beside the trails let you add variety to these climbs .
