Turtle Mtn has long been a favorite for the more advanced rider. Accessed at 7 1/2 km and 9 km off of the Kirkup Trail from the Boulder Parking lot. These are ungroomed and more challenging tree riding trails that will lead into the Alpine. The 7 1/2 km trail goes through Heli Ski Tenure and crosses some ski runs. Stay on the trail until you reach the alpine and do not sled on ski runs. This is a great sunny day ride which takes you back into the Monster Bowl and Copeland Mine area.  The most common way is to go up the 7 1/2 km trail and return on the 9 km trail. This is big open country with some high avalanche risk, so please be aware of conditions and act accordingly.
