  • BEACON CHECKERS

    We have one just before Henning Trail Up and one just before Road to 10-K.  Only takes a couple seconds to verify your beacon is on and working… please don’t fly by these important safety checks.


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 60 Km of trails to make it easy and fast to access the Alpine (Henning Alpine 6Km from Parking lot, 10-K Alpine is 15Km in).   We even have groomed trails through the Alpine so beginners can also enjoy the Alpine.  We have some 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 (next course Feb 18-19)

- main instructor is Niko Weis (one of the best around)

- this course is geared towards sledders... both days in the snow (most AST-1 courses only do 1 day in the snow and 1 full day in classroom)

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

- Saturday and Sunday is on Henning Mountain learning how to use your Beacon properly, how to probe and shovel properly, how to read the terrain and avoid avalanche risks, and how to read the snow pack

- there will be some classroom time in our Pipeline cabin

- Henning Mountain has groomed trails with Simple Terrain so beginners won't have a problem with the 2 days on the mountain

- you will be amazed at how much you learn in this course and realize how unprepared you really were with-out it. You miss one week-end of normal riding but you will still be on your sled and in the snow (not stuck in a classroom for days). Cost is $300/person, $250 if you are a member of CoqSnow, $200 for Kids or Volunteers. If you've taken AST-1 course before and want to redo the course as a refresher, we will give you a $100 discount. To sign-up, call Gerald @ 604-316-1600

- Lodging available at Coquihalla Lakes Lodge @ 1-877-978-2096
