UROC Trail Report September 30th:All time fall time is hitting pretty hard in Crowsnest at the moment. Some fantastic weather this week, topped off with a bit of rain will make for some of the best riding conditions we’ve seen in a while. A couple things to mention:There is a new mascot/trail marker at the top of Pass Powderkeg Ski Area. Please pay him a visit, but treat him with respect. We would love to see your photos with this amazing carving, so please tag us in your posts and stories.Also, the drop feature on Spare Change has some added decking, making it rollable. After consulting with PPK, we decided that instead of waiting for an accident to happen, we would add to the top of the landing so more people would be able to enjoy the trail and the feature. It can still be ridden as a large drop, but now you can progress on it. If you haven’t given Spare Change a ride yet, we highly recommend it!With the two new trails still being fresh on everyone’s mind, we just want to remind everyone to be extra cautious while using the PPK road to access the lodge level. The preference is that if you are biking, you take the single track, to avoid traffic all together, but if you ride the road please be aware that you are not the only user. If you are driving up and down the PPK road, please drive slowly! There are multiple spots where the trails cross the road, and we are hoping that we never have an incident with a bike and a vehicle. Finally, we only get a small window of amazing fall colours, and that time is right now! Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather while it lasts.Happy Trails! ... See MoreSee Less
UROC trail report Friday September 23rd:Fall is definitely in the air in Crowsnest Pass. After enduring a sweltering August, and early September, temperatures have dropped significantly this week into the teens. Yesterday we saw significant rainfall, which will help bring the tackiness back into the trails. We have perfect weather forecast for the next couple days, so don’t put your bikes into hibernation just yet. Fall time in Crowsnest can be some of the best riding all year, and with the right clothing you can usually ride until the snow starts to stick in mid-November. We know that the new trails at Pass Powderkeg Ski Area have been getting all the attention lately, but don’t forget about some York Creek classics like School of Rock and Sooper Trooper!UROC will continue the weekly trail updates until the snow flies so we can keep you up to date with trail conditions and what is happening in our area. Happy Trails! ... See MoreSee Less
