Brand new trail built by Predator Ridge in Spring of 2018. Granite has it all, a fast flowing descent, smooth rock slabs, snappy berms, punchy climbs and views worth packing a picnic lunch. Granite is set as a primary down trail but it you have the skills and lungs of steel it could be climbed. There is some exposure on the trail so look before you leap as some of this trail is built on a cliffs edge, literally. The high level of exposure is the main factor on why it is getting the expert designation. The more difficult slabs do have an easy way around, and if not for the exposure this trail could be labelled blue/intermediate difficulty.

 This is an amazing trail. Mix flow and tech with a lot of rocks. A must ride for everybody. Only downside it’s too short... So we ride it twice.

 Not sure how to rate this. Reasonably fun, though would have been much much better as a hand built trail. The description is way off, as most places I've ridden this would be a green trail, or very easy blue and there is no exposure nor difficult slabs. We was disappointed as we were expecting a bit of a challenge. My wife is a complete newbie and rode the entire trail without issue.

There are some nice views though.

 No, definitely not. Chatted with some other guys from the Kootenays and they said the same thing
