The Intro to Downhill lesson package is a great start to your mountain biking journey. This 2-hour long lesson will give you the skills and confidence you need to take on downhill mountain bike trails.

Our knowledgeable bike coaches will show you techniques for braking, body position and cornering.

We offer these lessons for youth (6-14) and adult (15+)

Lesson Overview:

When you meet your coach they will go over the basic mechanics of your bike, how to change gears, use a dropper post etc. They will then guide you through our learning terrain Mooslyvania and Ally’s Alley to practice fundamentals, after which you will head up the lift and explore our green terrain which is a perfect place to expand your skills.

Lessons begin at 10am & 1pm

Please book 24 hours in advance, for bookings within 24 hours please call 207-825-5000 or email

Please note: all participants must know how to ride a bike and be familiar with using hand brakes.


Athletic clothes similar to what you might go on a hike in, closed toe and heel shoes with a stiff sole, crew socks to protect your shins and sunglasses. Bike gloves are helpful and are sold in the rental shop

Yes you can! The package comes with a half day rental that goes from 9am to 1pm or 1pm to 5pm. There is also the option to upgrade to a full day rental.

We require all bikes to have front and rear brakes and Disc brakes are strongly recommended. You will have the most fun on a bike with at least front suspension (hardtail). Our fleet of rentals bikes are a great place to start if you’re unsure if your bike is adequate.

From our experience children and adults learn better in different environments, so to make sure that everyone gets the most out of their lessons we like to keep them separate. If riding together is a make or break for you, we recommend looking into a Family Private.

The intro to downhill package includes a lift ticket & bike rental, so yes you will be able to ride afterwards!
