Resort / Country: Shames Mountain, Canada | Visited 1351 times
Some of the best riding in B.C. is available at Shames Mountain.
Had 3 days to die for for in NW BC. The cold weather of recent weeks has made for ideal snow conditions in this part of the world. As a bonus the cold kept the fair weather types off the slopes and it felt like we had our own private resort on Friday!

The mid station settled base is up to 350 cm and with the huge amount of fresh (over 70 cm in 3 days) we couldn't have asked for more. The snow overnignt into Saturday covered our tracks so effectively that we could ride our favourite lines from the day before all over again.

The light was too low for pics but here's a nice little video segement from Rideguide that gives you an idea of the terrain and the conditions in this little known spot.

I had anticipated that this would be a good wind down trip for the season but conditions got me so stoked that I will probably put off getting my mtn bike out for a few weeks now. Shames Mountain is truly a gem of the wilderness and highly recommended for those of you willing to get off the beaten track.
