The Training

Learn how to ride like the pro's from ZEPtechniques PMBI Certified Instructors and our "Six Skill System" teaching progression. Our goal is for you to achieve your riding goals... and then exceed them!

The Backcountry Camp training mostly takes place in the famous Whistler Valley Trails, but also includes some riding in the amazing Whistler Bike Park. The climax of the camp is then a two-day, float plane trip to ride the amazing trails in the famous B.C. backcountry area, known as the Chilcotins.

This provides the ultimate mountain bike training experience, instruction and skill progression, while showing you everything Whistler has to offer. Each discipline helps the other - a truly competent rider is one who can do it all, regardless of what or where they're riding; these camps will help you become that rider. Just bring a decent trail bike, helmet and pads... and we'll provide the rest!
