4 Days

Course Details

Get ready for a fun four-day summer camp that will catapult your young rider's mountain biking skills to new heights! Our Advanced Youth Mountain Bike Camp is tailor-made for those who have conquered blue trails and are itching for more adventure.

During this camp, your young rider will work closely with our experienced PMBIA Level 2 & 4 certified coaches. We'll focus on mastering essential skills that are the backbone of tackling challenging black trails.

Through a dynamic mix of drills, on-trail coaching, extensive trail riding, and even shuttle assistance, your child will learn and refine their skills, developing trust and confidence so they can master their fear. They'll learn the art of conquering technical terrain, finding the optimal lines, navigating steep descents, and tackling tricky features like raised ladder bridges and rock rolls. These skills are not just about conquering trails; they're about building confidence and safety on challenging terrains.

Our coaches will also help your young rider to refine their brake control and acquire specialized techniques like rear-wheel lifts, bunny hops, track stands, and small jumps. These are the tools that will allow them to navigate black trails with ease and finesse.

Our camp structure is designed to provide a safe, progressive learning environment. Our experienced coaches will offer real-time feedback, ensuring your child's skills are honed to perfection. Sign up today for an unforgettable mountain biking adventure that's all about skill development, confidence building, and, most importantly, having an absolute blast on the bike!

Shannon Martin

Originally from Western Australia, Shannon spent his teenage years on a BMX building jumps through nothing but trial and error (i.e a lot of crashes). After almost 15 years off the bike he finally rented a full suspension mountain bike at Kicking Horse in 2013 and fell back in love with 2 wheels. Living in Banff and Japan made serious mountain biking tough, but the last few years living in Rossland, along with an upgrade to a modern bike, have him craving for more speed and bigger air. Shannon is a professional photographer and videographer and also works Ski Patrol at RED in the winter. In the summer when not working you can probably find him digging at the Rossland dirtjumps (just like when he was a kid).
