Everything is big, steep and challenging at Eagle Pass. It offers breathtaking views, lofty peaks and a vast riding area well above 2000 meters. In mid-winter, considerable power and advanced skills are required to sled here. First timers to this area should go with someone that has been there before and who is familiar with the area.
Be well prepared as this area is rugged and remote. Last summer we started construction of the chalet for Eagle Pass area. The structure is now completed and looks great. Thanks again to all those who helped out with the planning and construction of this chalet.
*This area is not recommended for novice sledders.*
The access road is groomed up to the gas drop location which is approximately 26km. There are no marked trails beyond the gas drop point.
