Meet Kat and Scotty

FAVOURITE TRAIL: West Crystal Line and ‘The Beach’.

On days off from her work in service design, Kat loves to ski in West Bragg while pulling Scotty in the pug. Lucky Scotty! In the summer they enjoy walks on West Crystal Line while dad is biking on Braggin’ Rights – Merlin. Scotty is also big on beach time by Bragg Creek. We see new bikes and skis coming soon to Scotty’s wish list.

More and more, folks are seeking out gentle strolls in nature – alone or in small groups. In summer, the ski trails system has much to offer. Consider spending time on the Crystal Lines or Mountain Road. Gentle, quiet, peaceful time.

Here are some options for walks on the Ski Trails System – great for solo, group or family wanderings…
