Revelstoke: Frisby Ridge

“A definite highlight had to be Frisby Ridge in Revelstoke – the grade of the climbing was comfortable, the scent of the wildflowers was intoxicating in places and the scenery was beyond compare. The mountain views in the distance juxtaposed with the soft meadows in full alpine bloom were extraordinary.” Leanne

We took a swim in this jewel of a lake at 7,000ft. The Frisby Ridge trail is an 11.5km out and back ride. This lake was waiting for us at the turn around point. Unfortunately the number of biting bugs who had already staked claim to the lake was a little overwhelming. Be sure to bring some repellant when you go.

There were a couple good views.

The return trip was a moving rave in the woods. The other face of that sweet climb was a descent that made you dance on the pedals and want to punch the sky a few times when done. After losing the two nails the day before, I switched both brakes to the right hand, and held tight to keep the fingers from shaking, praying the whole time I didn’t have a run-in with something tougher than a couple ferns. Thanks to the Nelson ER and modern pharmaceuticals for keeping me going.
