Join us for the all-day clinic- gondola access is included with an option for lunch to be provided.  Or choose to join us for the morning-only session, 9am-Noon.  You'll work on

  • positioning, balance, and techniques for climbing and riding downhill, as well as cornering and making tight turns
  • riding through a slalom course
  • riding over rocks, roots, and logs
  • putting your bike into a controlled skid
  • effective braking
  • learning bike safety practices

A look at the day's agenda...

8:30-9:00am  Register at the ticket desk in the Northwoods Lodge. 

9:00am  Kick off your day in our agility park improving your bike handling skills.  Then we'll head to the Ski Bowl to ride the cross-country trails there, applying the new skills learned in the agility park.

Noon  Morning session ends. All-day participants break for lunch- bring your own, or select the option to include lunch and yours will be provided.

12:45pm  Back at it for more riding on either the Ski Bowl trails or some of Gore's cross-country trails in the base area.  Ready for a challenge?  We'll take you and your bike up the gondola from Gore's base area to the summit of Bear Mountain to ride our more advanced downhill terrain, or continue practicing on the Ski Bowl's cross-country trails.

3:30pm  Camp ends- thanks for joining us.  Enjoy your new skill set!

What to bring and wear...

  • Mountain bike:  In good repair, preferably with full suspension.  Front fork suspension is required, and 'hard-tail' (no rear suspension) is acceptable.
  • Helmet!  Everyone must wear a helmet.  Make sure your helmet fits properly, and the chinstrap is snug.
  • Bring plenty of Water stored in a bottle or hydration pack.  You may want to bring Snacks with you for breaks on the mountain.
  • Clothing:  Mountain bike shorts preferred.  Avoid loose pants that may get caught in bike chain.  T-shirt or long sleeved shirt, pending weather.  Light jacket may be needed pending temperatures.  You'll get warm quickly when riding the trails!
  • Footwear:  Biking shoes or supportive trail shoes or sneakers with good tread are recommended.
  • Biking gloves are recommended- padding or gel in key areas of the palm make gripping the handlebars more comfortable and reduce risk of blisters.
