The Kootenays are calling…..

It’s spring!

After a long Kootenay winter, it’s nice to air out the hiking boots and get moving on some solid dirt. However, when spring starts in the valleys, winter continues in the alpine for a long time.

The site has almost 100 trails explored and is constantly expanding. Visitors can add trip reports with the latest information about trail and road conditions. Happy hiking!
