You can explore the mountain and the valley around it on your ATV. This is the perfect spot for bringing the entire family with all athletic levels because there is something for everyone to do. The Salmon Bake with patio dining and beautiful views is an exciting fringe benefit of this trip.
Gold Bridge Trails
It’s a tiny town, but the trails are remarkable as you’ll see rocky cliffs, sparkling lakes, and snowy mountains. When you’re not riding, you can also visit the abandoned gold mine. Because Gold Bridge is fairly close to Blackcomb Mountain, you could start your trip here and head over to Whistler for double the fun.
