Bring your up-and-coming rippers to join us for a week of riding on the beautiful Kaslo trails. We will challenge them with the features in the park, fine tune their skills with drills and games and take them to the North Shore of Nelson to explore new terrain. The purpose of this course is to focus on building skills in a safe environment, progression onto manmade features in the park, building confidence and both fundamental and more advanced skills. In addition they will have the opportunity to show their talents through teaching the other riders their favourite tricks, learning how to build and maintain trails while gaining appreciation for the work our trail builders do. Finally they will learn how to change a flat tire, basic bike maintenance and trail etiquette.
