    Revelstoke: Frisby Ridge Closed? What else?

    I was hoping to ride Frisby Ridge this month since I'll be driving through Revy and have a free day, but I just found out Frisby Ridge is closed for the season. What would be the next best trail? I'm looking for a "wow" trail, Frisby seemed appealing because of the views, seemed like it would be nice to be out of the trees for a change

    Any advice would be great, don't want anything too gnarly, I can clean single blacks in the Whistler bike park and valley, but not goat's gully type stuff.

    Keystone Standard Basin.
    Keystone Standard Basin Mountain Bike Trail - Keystone Standard Basin, Revelstoke

    The wild flowers are unreal right now, and the alpine views are pretty epic.

    Cool thanks, though looks kinda short, any other trail you would recommend?

    Not short by the time you do the full ride at elevation - at least for most mortals. There is a piece of trail you can use to extend the ride. You'd have to look at a map for details.

    Keystone is 22 km round trip. It's not as long as Frisby but it's a harder ride that takes longer to ride. It's also more scenic and a better trail, IMO. If you want something longer, keep going past the cabin on Keystone all the way into Standard Basin. The trail after the cabin isn't as well maintained, but it is rideable.

    Cool thanks, how's Martha Creek compare in terms of fun or views?

    Martha Creek is also very good!
    The road up I hear is not great and most shuttle it.
    (18 km or so up)
    I have never done it but it is on my must do list.

    Martha Creek is mostly a full on DH trail. The top third has some pedally sections through alpine meadows, but the towns are techy. Once you hit the first road crossing it's all downhill until you reach the valley. The views are amazing at the top.
