Video: Mega Steep Squamish Slabs with Remy Metailler & Lenzerheide Junior World Cup DH Winner Seth Sherlock

Squamish’s hottest lap right now? For me, yes for sure.

You asked for it, so here it is, the trail preview of Sourkraut, to Chossy’s Slabs and Gouranga. Chossy’s and Gouranga have been around for a while, but Sourkraut was opened earlier this year by Rob Krauter, his dog Chossy and Martin Pomerleau. The three built that trail during 7 months and the result is amazing.

Sourkraut is definitely one of the hardest trails in Squamish, but also one of the most beautiful.

Thanks Rob, Martin and Chossy for your hard work and for letting me film on it.

For the trail preview, I followed Junior DH National Champ and Squamish local Seth Sherlock. Seth also won his first World Cup last weekend in Switzerland so he was the perfect fit for this video.

I met Seth in 2013 as he was sponsored by the bike shop Evolution Whistler. He is a talented, humble and well brought up kid. He will go far on his bike and I wish him the best at World Champs next week. Go and wish him good luck on his Instagram: @sethsherlock.

Trail Preview of SourKraut with Seth Sherlock

Sourkraut and Chossy’s Slabs are not on Trailforks. They are considered as “secret trails’. If you know where they are and want to ride it, please stay on the trail and if the first feature is intimating to you, turn around, as the rest of the trail is harder.

If you enjoyed this trail and want to ride it, I advise you to join the Squamish Off Road Cycling Association this way you will be able to support trails like this one!

Thanks a lot to the trail builders for the work!

What trail should I ride next?

Thanks for watching, see you on the trails or on YouTube!

 Sometimes a trail needs a tripple black diamond rating. SK if off the radar ( sort of) so no rating needed. On my bucket list now. Thanks for sharing. Big thanks to Squamish trail builders!!!!

 If you want to keep them secret why did you leave all of the exits in the video?
  • 17 0
 True I normally would not but the builder asked me to show the exit.

 @remymetailler: Also, if you know the area they aren't so hard to find. Whether you should ride them or not has all to do with the features - not whether or not you can find them on Trailforks.

 @DHsender4life: Thanks for your work. Gouranga I'm assuming? I'm working on something for the trails and to give back to the community. Obviously I already do I think a fair amount for the community but I'd like to do more. Regarding the revenues of ads, I will buy you a coffee for the 20$ I madeWink

 @DHsender4life: I can show you what I made on that video. When are you riding next? We could go on a trail ride and chat about it if you want. Send me a PM if you want.
