Retallack Ladies Shred Session

Backcountry Biking at Retallack

Are you a gravity junky? Then you're going to LOVE it at Retallack! Heli drop, shuttles, endless burms & jumps!

July 25-28, 2019

Retallack Lodge is a famous cat skiing lodge deep in the Kootenay Mountains near New Denver, BC. They are quickly becoming very popular for their shuttle assist singletrack vacations during the summer months. Sweet Skills launched the inaugural camp with Retallack in 2018 with rave reviews! No doubt, you will be totally hooked after your first run!

Jumps, berms and natural features line the custom-built trails flowing from scenic Kootenay mountain alpine to valley bottom. We’ll let gravity feed us down through historic mining sites, alpine wildflowers, and fantastic trails. To maximize our fun we’ll be swept up in the shuttle van and zipped straight back up to the top, a wisked way to hone those downhill skills and have a ripping good time.

The cherry on top off this trip: getting heli dropped on top of a peak with 6000ft of epic single track to shred! After all that descending, we'll enjoy the gorgeous lodge with apres that can't be beat! Soak in the hot tub, hang by the babbling brook with a cool drink, play a wide assortment of games, and enjoy some amazing drinks at the bar. Retallack has the apres scene dialed!
