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 friendly entry-level 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, focus on the pedaling oriented 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 standard drops. Four 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 $25 including tax.
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.
On the camp weekend, Garbanzo Bike and Bean is offering participants 15% off bikes, parts and accessories, and service costs. For rentals, please book through Summit Sport.

We are proud to have the Aava Whistler Hotel as our local accommodation sponsor for the eighth year running. The hotel has a great location and amazing facilities, treats mountain bikers like gold, and offers a VIP discount of 30% to Trek Dirt Series participants.
The VIP rate is available on all Whistler camp weekends, as well as four days pre and post, all subject to availability. Many of our camps share dates with large resort-wide events, so definitely book early, as space often sells out.
Should you wish to stay at the Aava at other times, you’ll be entitled to a Trek Dirt Series affiliated discount then too. In this case it will be 10% off their lowest sell rate, provided you book at least seven days in advance.
A two-night minimum stay is always required for all Saturday stays, and for Sunday, July 31st stays as well.
Room options include two queen beds, a queen bed and a sofa bed, or a king bed. The hotel features a dry sauna, hot tub, outdoor heated pool, complimentary locked valet bike storage, and the nicest staff around. It’s located right in the village and less than a five-minute pedal from our host shops.
The Scandinave Spa is an outdoor spa focused on hydrotherapy and massage, and includes eucalyptus steam baths, wood burning Finnish saunas, Nordic waterfalls, hammocks and solariums. It's the epitome of relaxation and rejuvenation, and offers Trek Dirt Series participants 15% off the price of the baths and 15% off the price of massage.
To take advantage of this offer, either download the discount certificate here or pick up a printed copy at camp. The coaching staff goes throughout the season and absolutely loves it.
