Lorna Lake Package Frequently Asked Questions:

More information on our backcountry camps can be found here.

The most common camps for people to go through are Bear Paw and Spruce Camp, though since it is self guided, it is totally up to you!

The trails are considered backcountry and remote in nature. The riding overall is cross-country/all mountain in style.

You can expect a mixture of the following, depending on the route ridden:

  • Rolling single track terrain made up of some ups and downs, combined with some flatter sections of trail,
  • Creek crossings and sections of trail that can be wet and muddy – but passable
  • Occasional short up hills that require a good base level of fitness, and a burst of effort to ride or a small hike-a-bike.
  • Sections of trail that require some extended periods of hike a bike – particularly to reach the top of passes (see below for further details)
  • Sections of somewhat technically challenging riding over roots and rocks. Requires good bike handling skills and good concentration.
  • Some short sections of single track that can be a little off camber and/or slightly exposed.
  • Single track descents of between 20 to 45 minutes from the alpine to the valley – depending on the pass on top of.

Yes, so come prepared to do so with a suitably sized backpack-recommend 30 to 40 litre pack as a minimum.

Yes. You must have a good amount of experience mountain biking and be a strong intermediate rider at minimum (see our self rating scale here).

Riders must be comfortable with changing gears, braking, mounting and dismounting their bike in uneven terrain.

Riders should have the ability to pedal and/or walk with their bike uphill for short to long periods of time, and they must be comfortable descending moderately technical downhill sections. Riders must be able to ride in control at all times.

es, particularly if you travel the trails/routes below.

Understand that to get into the alpine there typically will be some hike a bike required. A good base level of fitness (Level 2 to 3) is required, along with a readiness to commit to the adventure.

  • Lorna Pass: 45 minutes to 1 hour of hike a bike
  • Elbow Pass: 45 minutes to 1 hours of hike a bike
  • Deer Pass: 90 minutes to 2 hours of hike a bike
  • Windy Pass: 1 hour to 90 minutes of hike a bike
  • Camels Pass: 20 to 30 minutes of hike a bike
  • Eldorado Pass: 30 minutes to 45 minutes of hike a bike
  • Cabin Pass: 30 to 45 minutes of hike a bike

But do not be intimidated by these numbers. A good level of fitness and attitude will help you reach the passes, and the rewards (views, the descent etc.) are ultimately worth it. One foot in front of the other, onwards and upwards.

Given the potential for sections of hike a bike, low cut, lightweight cross country style mountain bike shoes may not be the best footwear option.

We recommended bringing shoes that provide a good amount of ankle support, and that have a solid sole, for any sections of hike a bike. Check the condition of shoes before you arrive.

This will largely depend on the routes you and/or your guide(s) chose. There typically are multiple route options available to be considered. Factors such as rider expectations and experience, fitness and skill level, rider safety, weather and wildlife will be taken into consideration.

Generally, however you can expect to travel on average from 12-20 miles / 20-30 km per day.

Be prepared to be on the trails for anywhere between 4 to 7 hours – but this is not all time spent riding.

There is plenty of stop-start, and opportunities to snack and break to enjoy the surroundings.

No, after the ceremony is done we will fly your wedding clothes back to our base to be picked up on your return.
