Get to know the mountain before you load your skis in the cargo box...
Easy Rider — If this your first time up the chair then Easy Rider should be your first run. Take a minute to admire the spectacular view of the BC Rocky Mountains and then wind your way down this wide undulating trail. Look for fresh powder off the sides and make tracks.
High Plains Drifter — A smooth, long cruise ideal for skiers and riders who have spent some time on the mountain. The trail starts out as a gentle traverse, then steepens and narrows a little before opening out as it approaches the ski chalet.
Cowboy — Ride on Cowboy! One you have mastered the Magic Carpet, this is the next trail you must ski. Ride the Platter and exit where you feel comfortable. Take one of several traverses to the wide flat trail leading back to the ski chalet.
Moonshine — The mountain’s signature run is lit for night skiing on Saturday nights in February. Superb grooming on an undulating slope makes for a smooth and fast blast to the base.
Snow Gun — 1,000 vertical feet straight down … that’s Snow Gun. When the snow is deep, deviate from the main trail and hit banks, rollers, and gullies (the lift line is cool too). Show off while folks on the chair watch.
Crooked Tree — Crooked Tree shoots you from Gold Fever back to the chalet. Just know that folks on the chair are watching your style. The wide groomed pitch is best suited to more experienced skiers and riders.
Gold Fever — Gold Fever is the trail of choice for skiers and riders who are ready for Blue trails. The wide and well-groomed slope rolls over a couple of steeper pitches as it follows the fall line of the mountains.
Short Cut — Short Cut is a smooth straight run back to the chalet. There’s a steep pitch at entry and this means some pass it by, missing run after run of untouched corduroy.
Lasso — If you have the skills, dive off High Plains Drifter and carve some fast turns down Lasso. It’s a short pitch but it is steep enough to get your heart racing after the cruise down.
Desperado — Desperado is another trail that will surprise those who think they have a bunch of bullets in their holster. The slope is ungroomed, so you’ll usually find soft bumps mid-trail, with stashes off to the side.
Yahoo — Who says there isn’t any tough skiing at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort? Yahoo will truly test your skills: a narrow entry opens to a steep and bumpy pitch and you’ll need to work hard to keep it together.
Two Gun — When the Rocky Mountain Powder is deep and dry, take the time to find Two Gun. It’s narrower and steeper than other trails, with difficult soft bumps. Watch for unmarked hazards, especially when you’re playing around the trees.
