    Salmo Ski hill

This is a well built trail (trail is close to a metre wide) that starts in front of the ski hill lodge. The trail switchbacks up the East run (toughest part of the climb) then enters the forest on the east side where it climbs through the trees and cuts back through the ski hills main run. The trail climbs steady but has lots of flatter sections to catch your wind. It enters the trees and climbs up and crosses Sunshine creek then joins up with the Sunrise and Sunset west trails
