Ecuador probably isn’t your radar but if you can get past the remoteness, and the cacti that litter the sides of the trail the riding looks pretty amazing! The EVOC crew visited the region a couple of years ago and went in search for the good stuff, it certainly looks like they scored!

“In the last 15 years we have travelled to more than 40 countries. With our mountain bikes or snowboards, in search of the best trails and the most stunning powder runs – for magazines and photo shoots, with professional photographers.

In 2013 we went to Ecuador wandering the back country for new trails. On a height of 4100m we rode perfect shaped downhills, which lead through a huge diversity of landscapes. Near Ibarra our crew realized how painful it is to depart from the trail while passing fields of cacti. The highlight and great final of our journey we experience on Cotopaxi. We started our downhill through dense snowfall and strong wind, which deep-freezed our hands and feet. Just minutes later the weather changed completely and we let our bikes glide down the black, shimmering, vast slope of the volcano, as the sun melted the thin snow layer.”
