Family biking in grasslands (Picture BC photo)
There are three major mountain biking trail networks in the Golden area, but only one has a gondola waiting to carry bikers and their rides to the top of the mountain: Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.
When the last of the snow has melted from the north-facing slope of the Dogtooth Range, the Golden Eagle Express gondola switches into summer mode.
Getting up the Mountain
Park at the base, purchase a ticket, and in just 12 minutes be whisked (with bike) in a smooth riding car up the wire to the ridge at the 2,347m/7,700ft. From there, it's, well, downhill all the way.
Mountain Bike Trails
With more than two dozen trails on the mountain, there are lots of choices. For the serious downhill rider, there is no shortage of twisty single-track and plunging downhill descents, but there are also challenging cross-country rides and some easy, family-oriented routes down the mountain.
