Welcome to the ultimate slab riding paradise. Our 3-5 day helicopter assisted trips offer more than just adventure; they deliver an experience like no other. Prepare to descend the longest granite slabs in the world, where uncharted territory will leave you awe-struck, looking for more around every corner.

Our terrain is not your typical mountain bike destination. It’s a thrilling mosaic of granite slab riding, glacial tarns, and jaw-dropping mountain vistas. Imagine yourself carving through endless descent lines, each more exhilarating than the last. This is not just mountain biking; this is an expedition into nature’s playground.

For the 2024 season, due to weight limits, we are only able to accept electric mountain bikes on our Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast departures; chargers or spare batteries will be required. If you are considering booking with an e-bike, please reference under the additional information section of our application form with your bike’s weight.


Our adventure doesn’t stop there… At the axis of this rugged wilderness lies our base camp, a luxurious retreat nestled, at 1800 meters, amidst an alpine cirque. Picture yourself unwinding in a soothing sauna, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of neighbouring peaks. Our camp features a pristine swimming tarn, inviting you to take a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters, followed by a hot shower, all just steps from comfort. Our team ensures that your every need is met, so you can fully recharge for the next day’s adventure.

We believe that every moment in the wild should be a moment of pure indulgence. Our base camp provides you with the comfort you deserve, offering more than just a good night’s rest. We’ve carefully designed our camp to offer the finest backcountry living, from the comfort of your cot to the delectable meals prepared to perfection.

“This riding area has one of the most surreal landscapes I have visited on the planet. It’s crazy to think that this terrain has always been so close to my home and yet I had no idea it existed. In mountain biking, we crave the wide-open landscapes just as much as we crave a tight, single track. Traditionally, rock slabs were short, intermittent sections that gave us thrills, however, what we found was huge, steep slabs with endless traction to push our boundaries. In this region, the possibilities are endless, as the entire area is nothing but granite slabs, eroded smoothly by the earth’s last glacial era, creating one of the most stunning landscapes to take a bike and explore BC’s raw backcountry…”

“Riding in this area is a limitless exploration of what a bike and rider can do. The views, the location, the terrain – it’s a singular experience found nowhere else on earth. Ian sets a new precedent for what a guided backcountry experience can be.”

“Granite slabs as far as the eye can see. Mountain biking’s most comparable thing to the best day of powder skiing. Infinite line choices on massive terrain.”

Thomas Burden

“Some of the wildest riding on the planet, an alpine granite domain. I’ve ridden bikes around the world and this tops the list…. Golden granite slabs for thousands of feet, surrounded by crystal clear fresh water glaciated lakes, high above old growth forests. Everyday brings endless adventure, the boundaries are set only by your personal limits and desires. Freaking spectacular everywhere you look and ride. I look forward to returning one day soon. To all that get the chance, this is a trip of a lifetime!”
