Roots O'Hazard is the downhill trail on the lower half of the Pass Powderkeg Ski Hill. Originally it was an extension of the Alberta Cup Downhill from the upper ski hill, but has been partially upgraded and rerouted by the Boys and Girls Club of Crowsnest Pass.

Access Info

The trail starts west of the Pass Powderkeg Ski Area parking lot. The new downhill trail Spare Change also leads into it. Together these two downhill trails provide 1.7 km and 275 vertical metres of downhill.
Caution: the ski hill road is gated but is usually open until around 3 pm on weekdays during the summer. Do not park above the gates if you expect to return after 3 pm.
