Bike Park 101
An intro clinic tailored for first-time downhill mountain bike park riders looking to get a taste of the park. If you’re comfortable riding a bike on pavement, we’ll have you loving our easy cruising trails and learning areas. In a 2-hour session, our certified instructors will get you up to speed on the proper stance and body position, as well as elementary downhill bike control. You'll get started on the easy trails so you can get a feel for the excitement.
DH Group Lessons
Our roster coaches are on hand to show you techniques, and to ensure you ride the best suited trail sequence that matches the ability of your group. We like to ensure that all our guests will walk away having learnt something new. Whether it's dialing in corners, braking techniques and tactics, line selection, or practicing pressure control and balance on your bike, improving jumping and drops technique, a group lesson is enough to shake off some of the rust, and get you excited about riding downhill.


DH Private Lessons
The ultimate day of learning can be achieved with a private lesson. Whether it's with a group of your best friends, or you want to tackle the world of mountain biking one-on-one, your private coach can tailor a program specifically to meet your learning needs. Our private lessons deliver the highest levels of coaching, personalizing your progression on your bike to maximize your skill development. Coaching you on any trail, through any feature on the mountain, we ensure you'll be riding better and with more confidence.
