Silver Shack is the new XC to the top of the mountain and it is a fantastic climb. It takes you all the way to the backside of the resort and includes some great views south east towards Cherryville and the Monashees. It pops you out on Paradise trail to continue roughly 1.5 km to access Snake Pit our XC descent trail.

Access Info

Silver Shack starts right where Cross Mountain and Challenger trails intersect. You ride 2.2 km out of the village on Cross Mountain trail and you will arrive at the start of Silver Shack and see an 8 foot 6x6 sign post indicating the start of the trail.
