Powder Ridge is not just a great place to learn to ski and board, we’ve got great mountain bike lessons as well! We take our terrain-based learning approach, using sculpted areas and step-by-step instructions to teach the fundamentals. Riders learn new skills, build confidence and have fun.
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 riders progress from our learning area to the pump track and then up the mountain.
2021 – New this Season Mountain Bike Camp
Our half-day mountain bike camp is for riders ages 6-14. Starting with the fundamentals riders will progress through our training series and up the mountain to experience the downhill trails. Riders progress at their own pace, most explore the mountain on our beginner trails their first visit.
