    1 Mostly the XC variety - lots in the Bragg Creek; Kananaskis Country area
    2 Depends on what you ride
    3 Its the mountains. Expect the unexpected but snow is not out of the question

    Most of the trails are quite ridable on HT but a FS bike would make some of them faster to ride.

    30 minutes south of Calgary would put you in good position to access hwy 22X to Bragg Creek area trail access, or to get to hwy 1 Trans Canada for Kananaskis Country or if you wanted to add a nice 2hr scenic drive down 22 to hwy 40 through Longview to get to Kananaskis.

    You can do a search in this forum for trails in those areas, there are lots of options.

    It is bear country so it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with Black bear and Grizzly bear ettiquette.

    Bring the Chumba...It'll be ideal for alot of the riding up here.

    South of Calgary, Tuner Valley, has some xc stuff. But you are better off heading to Bragg Creek, it has some great rides Sulphur Springs and shuttling at Moose Mountain, but around the other side has Jumping pound and Cox hill. Then out in Canmore has some great stuff too...

    Travel to the south. Blairmore, crowsnest pass, even Lethbridge has some decent stuff for XC.
