Both races offer challenging climbs, descents and technicality that you've come to love from all our CMTS races. The 13km course will skirt around Sasamat Lake on the Buntzen Ridge Trail and glimpse Buntzen Lake. The 25km course will continue on to attack the Diez Vistas Ridge before following the newly added Lakeview Trail, and then grazing Buntzen Lake before the final climb back up and over to the finish at Sasamat Lake.
These trails have been local favourites for years and it is our absolute pleasure to bring you formidable routes that will showcase the beautiful lakes and famous views.
A perfect final training race before tackling the Diez Vista 50k on April 8th.
