Sol Mountain Lodge is based high in the alpine meadows of the Monashee mountains, 2 hours from Revelstoke. The trails are all specially hand built for mountain biking and are some of the most spectacular alpine singletrack in BC. The trails wander through beautiful alpine meadows, lakes and rocky bluffs.

 Join Sweet Skills for a fun filled weekend of mountain bike skills, alpine riding, yoga, delicious food and relaxation in the alpine. Spend 2 nights at the cozy lodge, plus 2 and a half days on your bike learning new skills and riding epic alpine trails. Daily yoga classes in the meadows and in the lodge will keep us limber and ready to ride. 

After a fantastic day full of activity, we’ll kick back on the patio with a cool beverage and enjoy the company of new friends and amazing views. All the while, dinner is being prepared for you!

The riding terrain is intermediate with some advanced rocky bluffs to climb and a rolling technical singletrack descent. Beginner friendly options are available as well!
