Pyramid Mountain Climb

Scrambling the local backdrop

A lit­tle mis­lead­ing with the word climb, this trip is a mul­ti sport event. Bik­ing the first part is rec­om­mend­ed and you will love the down­hill when you are done with the sum­mit.

Once you are at the old base of the main­te­nance gon­do­la, it is time to ditch the bike and start your sec­ond phase of the sport, hik­ing. From here it should take around 2 to 3 hours to sum­mit Pyra­mid Moun­tain. about 300–400 meters from the sum­mit, there are some scram­bling (light climb­ing) involved.

It is fun to go as a group, but it does slow down trip times. This trip is usu­al­ly done after the snow has melt­ed from the north face. Rec­om­mend the mon­th of July.

    1. I would add anoth­er 2-3hrs hike, approx­i­mate­ly 14km of road. High­ly sug­gest to rent a bike from town. You will love the down­hill after the sum­mit.

    1. You will love the down­hill and save your knees. Have fun!
