Use the Mile One Express lift to take a bite out of the significant climb to Panorama's summit ridge. From the top of the Mile One Express take Mercy Me. Turn left on the first service road and look for the Hopeful Adventure sign. Stay on the service road and follow Summit Access signs. Once you reach the summit, head south east into Taynton bowl. Follow the Summit to Hopeful signs. Single track from the end of the winter ski area boundary takes you past Goldie Lake to a pass where you will find the old McKay Outfitter's cabins. After a right turn and a few hundred meters your 5.7 km single track descent begins. Hopeful Adventure is primarily located within the Panorama Mountain Resort Controlled Recreation Area (CRA), Motorized vehicles are prohibited. Visit www.panoramaresort.com/cra for more detail.
