2017 Mountain Experience Ride June 1st

Registration is now closed.

 

This mountain trip has something for every rider and every level. Sign up for three days for out and back rides from the Lake Louise Hi-Hostel located in Lake Louise village or four days to include the Icefield Parkway to Sunwapta Pass. These rides except the ride up the Icefield Parkway to Jasper can be tailored to your ambition and ability. There is great scenery in all directions. Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and the valley of the ten peaks, Emerald Lake, the Spiral tunnels, and Bow Lake. If you’re lucky you ‘ll see the 2 nd cutest animal in the world, hear the call of the varied thrush and watch the antics of the Whiskey Jack and Clark’s nutcracker. There is a good possibility of seeing a bear.
