Update: July 14th, A tiny amount of snow remains at the highest elevations of the trail but it is only a minor inconvenience and the trail is now officially open for the season finally!
A 'bucket list' trail for many, the Seven Summits trail is a big effort for most folks. Officially an IMBA Epic, the trail lives up to its status with long demanding climbs and action packed high speed descents through rough Alpine terrain. Typically the season for an end to end on the trail is July, August and September. Occasionally we get lucky and ride it well into October but sometimes the snow comes early so it's a gamble. June is a great month for 'out and backs' to the snow line at the north end, a favourite amongst the locals.
A point-to-point ridge line trail, it is best shuttled unless you are truly fit and hungry for punishment. Please call the good folks at Mountain Shuttle at 250 231-4305 to set this up
