Whistler is our home base and, understandably, among our favorite places to ride and teach.
Not only is it wonderful to know an area inside and out, but it's fantastic to have so much to know. Between the world-renowned mountain bike park, technically challenging valley climbs and descents, and the same trails many of us learned on ourselves, Whistler has it dialed.
All of our Whistler camps allow each participant to select their specific riding focus. You can choose to spend all your time in the bike park, decide to check out the trails in the valley, or split your weekend between the two and experience them both.
The Whistler camps serve all rider levels, and all discipline interests, amazingly well. There is fantastic terrain on which to start in the sport, trails designed to develop intermediate technical skills, the ideal set up for learning jumps and drops, and then countless opportunities to develop far beyond the single blacks and the big GLC.
Three of our camps here are women's only, and two are co-ed.
Thanks to our partnership with Whistler Blackcomb, every participant receives one camp-specific bike park ticket at no additional cost. A second ticket, for those wanting to spend both days in the park, can be purchased at camp for just $20.
Whatever your level, whatever your bike, whatever your interest, and whatever you want to learn, you can do it, and put it into immediate practice, here.
