Welcome to Coq Snow.  Our riding area is just off the Coquihalla Highway, Exit #228 (Britton Creek rest area) between Hope and Merritt B.C.  (Show Map And Directions).  We have great riding areas for Beginners to Expert riders.  We groom over 90 Km of trails, giving easy access to different riding areas. Our main trails to Alpine are very short... Henning Alpine is 4Km from our Main Parking lot, 10-K Alpine is 5Km from our 10-K Parking lot.   We even have groomed trails through the Alpine so beginners can also enjoy the Alpine.  We have lots of areas with Simple Terrain so you can have a fun/safe day even during High avalanche conditions.  We also have two cabins in the Alpine stocked with split firewood.  All the wet West Coast weather dumps as snow on the Coq, so frequent Awesome snow days. There's also accommodations right next to the riding area... Coquihalla Lakes Lodge.  We have our own parking lot, so lots of room for any size rig you might have and very easy access just off the Coquihalla Hwy (4x4 recommended).  We also added a loading dock and a heated changing room in the parking lot area...  how about that.  Check out the Coquihalla Summit for an awesome sledding experience.

MISC INFO

AST-1 COURSE DETAILS 

- two day course is geared towards sledders.  Mornings will mostly be classroom time in our Pipeline Cabin, afternoons are out on the snow.  You don't need to be an experienced rider to take the course.

- you need your own sled and you must have a Beacon, Shovel and Probe (like every sledder should have).

- you will gain knowledge and skills to help you stay out of harm's way using the planning technology available via Avalanche Canada and other resources.

- you will learn to look critically at winter landscape, judging the terrain and snowpack, detect danger zones and safe routes to follow

- you will become fast and accurate rescuers, honing your skills with avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel, getting you prepared for any situation.   This will be physically challenging, as it would be in a real rescue scenario

- $300 per person, $250 for CoqSnow members, Youth/Volunteers $200, $100 discount if you've taken course before.

- Call Gerald @ 604-316-1600 to sign-up
