Powder Ridge is not just a great place to learn to ski and board, we’ve got great mountain bike training classes as well! We take our terrain-based learning approach using sculpted areas and step-by-step instructions so everyone can take advantage of our mountain bike trails.
The ABCs of Terrain Based Learning
- Action Stance – We teach students to be balanced on their bikes in an athletic agile position allowing them to respond to terrain changes.
- Braking – Starting from a walk we guide guests through a progression demonstrating how to use disc brakes to control their speed.
- Cornering Correctly – Using small banked turns guests learn to keep their body upright while leaning the bike into the turn.
Developing a solid foundation we can progress from our learning area to our pump track and then up onto the mountain.
Experience the downhill trails. Guests find their comfort zone and expand at a pace that works for them. Most explore the mountain on our beginner trails their first visit.
