Explore Pyramid Mountain

Hiking / Scramble / Biking
The hike is fairly steep and hands on, so it is rated scrambling in my books.

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.

Snow patches in late June

The views are stunning from here on. Spend some time on the summit and explore the area and take in the amazing vistas. You will be able to see the lakes below with birds eye view.

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.

An easy hike to the Ridge is a must for day hiking in the Icefield area.

      The climb is approximately 2-3hrs from the base after the road ends. We used mtn. bikes to ride up the fireroad. The day takes around 8hrs. Hope that helps.

        Can you rent bikes in the place?
