Mount Swansea in Invermere, BC is one of the first zones that we are able to shuttle some DH at once the snow melts, its also one of the last of the year we get to ride with out snow.
Here’s a few piks from one of our last days shuttling last year, started off cold, but ended up being a beauty day!
Silhouette shot of us camping the night before riding.
White Swan hot springs, a great place for a soak.
Sweet fall colors on a cold morning.
Canadace doing a sun dance to try and bring out some warmth.
A tarp was a good idea….uggh, miserable.
Keith was stoked at the sight of some white stuff coating the ground in the morning. Every one was seriously questioning my suggestion of riding when we woke up to the snow.
Ned ripping one of the top sections.
Curtis having some fun on some tech rocks.
Pat doing a fly by on the rocks.
Keith shredding some of the leafy single track fun mid mountain.
Ned laying into a beauty corner.
The sun started to shine for Keith on the berm.
Up close and personal with me in the berm.
Ned launching the step up, a view from under.
A shot of me almost tire tapping Keiths head…. I missed, Doah!
Me trying my best to be parallel with the ground, the best lighting of the day came on our last run. Great way to end the year and get the stoke on for the next year!!!
As Bike season comes upon us i have been sifting through some files on the comp and cam across a few that were missed from last year. Towards the end of the year Myself and good buddy Adrien went and did one of the classic Kananaskis Country loops Jewel Pass and Prairie View.
When Linked up these two sections of trail offer epic views and tons of fun that will put a smile on almost any riders face.
The view from the top of the Prairie view climb.
There is good trail marking on both sections of trail that will keep you from getting lost. Our 2 sweet whips doing some modeling with the signage.
A short section of flat fire road that follows Barrier Lake connects Jewel Pass to Prairie View.
There is a small section of hike a bike just at the top of the Prairie View Climb. as you can see it looks like tons of fun…. but adds some adventure to the ride.

Adrien ripping the jewel pass descent, my favorite part of the whole loop!
yet another epic view from a chunk of Jewel pass.
Adrian on the beginning of the Prairie View descent.
Get out and give this loop a ride, its a great one, if you want to turn it into an epic, add the Hector descent off the last switch back of the Prairie View fire road climb, then climb back up the fire road again. on your way down the west side of Prairie View turn right and head up Razors Edge for some of the best tech single track the Rockies has to offer.
Sorry, no posts from Aus.
During my first ride/race of the year i fractured my scaphoid in my wrist…..(massive non-smiley face)
Finished the race 46/380 so not too bad but that was the extent of my 2 wheel time down under.
On the healing train now, hoping to be back on my bike by mid to late May.
Maybe a trip here will cheer me up!
