    July 2021 Camp Information

    Gradually build your bike skills in partnership with Elevation Outdoors.

    If you have never ridden, or are a beginner/ novice rider and would like to improve your skills this camp is for you! Over 3 sessions you will receive instruction from our PMBI certified instructors to get you rolling for the first time, or clean up your riding and get you feeling more confident on your bike. We will ride the beautiful Knox Mountain trails you will develop your skills to handle the various terrain, from flowy single track to riding bumps and berms. Our instructors will get you started by focusing on the foundations of mountain biking, including body position and balance, braking, and cornering, and then build from there.

    Our goal is to not only have you develop your skills on a mountain bike, but to help you develop confidence in your own abili ties so that you can challenge yourself and push out side your comfort zone to see what you are truly capable of.

Develop your skills on more technical terrain, improve your cornering, and improve your line selection. The trail network at Big White has some amazing trails to help your progression, and the chair lift lets you get great mileage to practice your new skills!

    We will strive to build groups based on skill, but if you can organize a group of 4 5 friends of the same level it can help create a great atmosphere of learning and fun with your friends!

    • For riders 19+ looking to learn to mountain bike in a supportive environment.
    • For the Knox Mountain dates if you need a bike you get 50% off from Kelowna Bike Rentals at the base of Knox Mountain.
