Big Mountains! Big Snow!

Queest

Queest (pronounced like quest) is our oldest sledding area and on a clear day this area has some of the best views in British Columbia. Overall, the terrain is a little steeper on Queest than Blue Lake but the area has something for all skill levels. This well established area with up to 35 square kilometers of sledding country with deep powder and exciting hill climbs. There is a meadow area around the chalet and further north there are some inclines that will require a little extra power. Elevation is over 2000 meters allowing for good sledding into the spring. The access trails have wonderful views of the Eagle Valley and both Mara and Shuswap lake. A ride up to the A-frame chalet is worth the time just for the scenery. Extra care is required on Queest when the weather is marginal as there are some cliffs northeast of the Chalet that need to be avoided.
