The David Thompson Loop is rated as "difficult" because of distance and remoteness rather than its technical skiing demands.
The upper section (S-L-X) consists of a regular series of relatively short climbs and pleasant descents through scenic, mixed forest.
On the flat but picturesque "Old Track" stretch (X-S-W), the trail passes through cuts, and along embankments which traverse lakeside and swamps, offering possible glimpses of evidence (mouldering ties, abandoned telegraph poles) of the vigorous rail and lumber industry of the early 1900s.
