Update: Oct 3rd '18 .
There's snow in them 'thar hills. Looks like that's it for wheeled travel on the Seven Summit's for another year folks. Check back here for updates in the spring. Typically the trail opens with small patches of snow still retreating in early July.
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
