DESTINATION TRAIL: CANADA

In this episode, the Coastal Crew travel by floatplane & horseback to the Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia, Canada in search of natural inspiration for their Coast Gravity Park.

DESTINATION #5

BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA

In this episode, we follow the Coastal Crew's Kyle Norbraten, Curtis Robinson, and Dylan Dunkerton as they head to the Chilcotin Mountains of British Columbia in search of natural inspiration for their Coast Gravity Park. First traveling by floatplane, then horses, a hike-a-bike, and a long descent, the Chilcotins proved to be remote and isolated, with many of the trails being carved out from centuries of horse and wildlife use. In other words, it took some hard work to get out there, but once the crew started riding, they quickly realized that they not only had these epic trails all to themselves, but the stunning views, sprawling vistas, and jagged ridgelines also existed for their eyes only. It's mountain biking in its purist form—unplugged, adventurous, and completely outside of your comfort zone.

THE RIDERS

COASTAL CREW

The Coastal Crew is a group of mountain bikers that live on the coast of British Columbia. Hell-bent on elevating real mountain biking, the group consistently creates some of the most captivating mountain bike media out there. You can think of their work as one part lifestyle, two parts passion, and all inspiring, and this carries through to their Coast Gravity Park in BC, as well. At this location, riders will find acres upon acres of gravity-fed trails, all designed by the world's finest builders. Some might call what the Coastal Crew is doing a movement, but we'll just call it a good time on bikes.

THE TRAILS

CHILCOTIN MOUNTAINS

Lying between the Klinaklini River at the north and the Fraser in the south, the Chilcotins are a mostly protected collection of mountain ranges in British Columbia, spanning 9,616 square kilometers. They first became popular for recreation in the early 1930s, and with scarce mining and logging operations in the area, they remain much in the same today. Its remoteness and sheer size, however, account for vast parts of the Chilcotins going unvisited annually. In turn, their sprawling, jagged peaks, lack of crowds, and rich eco-diversity make them an adventurous mountain biker's dream.
