5 Photos That Will Make you Want to Visit Vernon

Discover BC through the eyes of its locals photographers!  This week, we’re featuring Vernon through the eyes of Dylan Sherrard.   This week we are riding in Vernon with Noah Brousseau! “Vernon is a mountain bike playground. It’s so cool to live here with trails out the back door, Silver Star just up the road, and the lake just around the corner. My summer days spent riding at home are the best. I’m stoked for you to follow along this week.” “It gets so hot around here in the summer. Some iced coffee, a little water melon, and a cruise up to Silver Star sure helps make the air feel cool.

The final few evening laps before the sun sinks into the horizon are guaranteed to be cool, but rarely to be calm. Rider - @kye_melnechuk Trail - Barn Burner at Sun Peaks Resort There is a very distinct moment toward the tail end of August at Sun Peaks when the light and the colours have all softened and Autumn is clearly coming in. Rider - @lyndensandy  Trail - Route 66 at Sun Peaks Resort Cool and breezy in the alpine bloom. Rider - Blaise Trail - Ain’t No Scrubs at Sun Peaks Resort What could possibly be more a more perfect way to manage a hot summer day, than relaxing by the lake? Maybe riding up the mountain to relax at a quiet alpine lake, and then crushing a couple thousand feet of singletrack on your way out? Rider - @sara7rose Trail - Altitude at Sun Peaks Resort It’s all good, it’s all gold. @kye_melnechuk only stops hot-lapping when the light runs out. Rider - @kye_melnechuk Trail - DH at Sun Peaks Resort A cool and foggy morning is a rare sight during the summer months at Sun Peaks. A...

Shred Hard Summer Camp 2017

I dive deep into the dog days of summer. Wild flowers paint the forest, the laps keep coming, and the light seems to last forever. The season is energizing. I do all that I can to share the buzz of the summer with everyone around me. And the absolute pinnacle of sharing begins each morning at Shred Hard Summer Camp.
