Mountain biking is in our culture. Our backyard is a spiderweb of epic cross-country trails, free ride and downhill descents.

We wake up each day to spectacular alpine views of the Selkirk, Purcell, and Valhalla Mountains. Our days are spent dropping into trails that flow more sweetly than warm honey.  With Retallack’s professionally guided back country mountain packages, you will be able to access winding bermed single-track descents of up to 5,000 vertical feet through old growth forests via a combination of off-road vehicles and helicopters. Our network of trails is located in the Selkirk Mountains of the West Kootenays and are dispersed over an approximate area of 5,900 square kilometres (1,458,000 acres). We have lots options to choose from! Luxury food and accommodations are provided at Retallack’s 11,000 sq ft lodge - located in the heart of the Selkirk Mountains, accessible by car approximately one hour North of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.  All you need is your bike and riding gear; we do the rest. Join us in mountain biking paradise.
