For 2021 we will be offering a 1 week long mountain bike focused camp for youth ages 12 – 18. This program is focused on riders that are looking to build on existing skills.  This is a week long bike focused camp that wraps up with a full day of resort riding at Big White on the Friday. 

For first time or novice riders take a look at our Live to Ride program or our other summer camps.

We are running this program August 16 – 20, 2021. 

Send an email to info@elevationoutdoors.ca if you would like to be on the mailing list for the program and we will email when registration opens.

Price: $500 + cost of bike rental/armour rental from Big White if required.

Each day will run from 9:00am – 4:00pm.

Tentative Schedule*: Each day we will bike as much as is safely possible.  We will asses rider safety ongoing each day, and move to non-bike activities when we feel is appropriate.

Monday – Ride at Knox Mountain – skill assessment and evaluation.

Tuesday – Crawford – skill development and riding, afternoon will be other outdoor activities**.

Wednesday – Riding location will be determined based on riders skill level.

Thursday – Rest Day – Campers will spend the day at the Myra Canyon Adventure Park

Friday – Full day of riding at Big White. Transportation to and from Big White is included. If your child requires a rental bike from Big White we highly recommend confirming availability before registering for the camp.

*The schedule may change based on weather and availability at Big White.

**Based on our experience riding all day increases the risk of injury.  We will base the amount of riding on participants performance throughout the day, temperatures and air quality.

With a maximum of 6 spaces available in this camp we will do our best to accommodate skill differences, but may not be able to accept all applicants to provide a quality experience for as many as we can.

  • For riders 12 – 18 looking to learn to mountain bike in a supportive environment.
  • Use of one of our Giant Talon hardtail bikes is provided if needed for in town riding.
  • If providing your own bike for the in town dates it must have front suspension, disk brakes, and be in good working order.  **To use your own bike it will need to pass inspection from our staff on the first day.**

What is included?

  • Instruction from our PMBI certified instructors
  • Bike use from Elevation Outdoors fleet and helmet
  • Lesson and lift tickets for Big White days with a 2 hour lesson from Big White instructors in the morning and guided riding in the afternoon
  • Transportation to and from common meeting point to each days destination.
  • A positive environment to improve your skills in.
  • A whole lot of fun!

***If you are selecting to bring your own bike for the Big White day it must have full suspension and disc brakes as a minimum.  It will also need to pass a safety inspection by one of the Big White team before being used for the day.  By electing to provide your own bike you are also forgoing the full face helmet and armour rental that is included, if you would like to rent this it will be available for $42.00 on site.***
