Pemberton – Tenquille Area

Heli Shuttle in the Coast Range!

The weather this August has been AMAZING so we took the opporunity to do the Ultimate Mountain Bike Shuttle – A Helicopter!

A bit more expensive then the last time we did this, but well worth the price.

2000m Descending
200m Climbing

After being dropped off at 2160m, you make your way down one of two alpine bowls to a trail that eventually intersects with the Owl Lake Connector/Tenquille Lake trail which traverses to Tenquille Lake. There are two trails around the Lake, it was recommended by the Wildlife Association for riders to use the South side ( Left ) which is shorter, less muddy, more rocky and less of a slog. The rest of the descent is the fast trail that now goes through the burn of 2008. It’s quite dusty and definitely getting more eroded in the open burn area, the trail is also getting quite overgrown so you can’t go that fast since you can’t see the sniper rocks and logs on the side of the trail. The lower section opens up and is quite a bit faster.
