KIDS PROGRAM 2017
Whether riders are just starting out riding trails and have never been in the Bike Park to riders who are riding all levels of trails, jumping, dropping and shredding all over the valley and park. Coaches will choose trails appropriate to your child’s ability level to help them develop their technique, stamina and skills. Programs will work on developing skills on XC trails and DH skills in the Whistler Bike Park for all levels of riders. Amount of time spent in the Bike Park will depend on ability level with groups that are intermediate and above doing alternate days XC and DH.
