FAQ’s

What should I wear?

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 definitely helpful and we sell some in the rental shop!

Can I bring my own bike?

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.

Can my child and I do a lesson together?

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.

Can I ride after my lesson?

The intro to downhill package includes a half day lift ticket, so yes you will be able to ride afterwards. If you’re looking to keep riding all day long we would love to upgrade your ticket to a full day!
