Trail True Blue
Wicked fun blue flow trail! Lots of little jumps and rollers, you can keep a lot of speed in most sections.

Trail True Blue
True blue - aptly named. Very fun fast flowy trail for blue riders and black riders alike! Lots of little hits and the faster you go the bigger they get. Nice building!!

Kootenay Blue but wheels on ground the whole way. Super fun steep trail with lots of twisty corners. Had a blast! You guys rock!

Trail is in great shape, kudos to the builders! This trail should be a black though, a true blue rider will be walking these steep tight turns. We rode it in ideal conditions. The advanced riders had a big smile on their faces!!

Can confirm. Still steep. Was outside my comfort zone so I rode back over to True Blue which was a blast to ride.

Definitely a "Nelson Blue". In any other place but West Kootanees - this would be a black trail.

Despite that it is very well built and super enjoyable.

Trail Drifter
Sweet steep steep forest loam. Definitely some sections to cool your brakes, one committing steep line somewhere in the middle and some big compression areas toward the bottom.

More on the difficult side of blue for sure. Some fairly steep tight turns with trees in close proximity.
