    All Mountain MTB Adult Camp at Big White Mountain Resort

    July 2020 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 two weeks 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.

    Over two evenings in town riding the beautiful Knox Mountain trails you will develop your skills to handle the various terrain, from flowy single track to riding bumps and berms, all building towards a full day of riding at beautiful Big White and experiencing the fun of gravity assisted downhill riding!

    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 abilities so that you can challenge yourself and push outside your comfort zone to see what you are truly capable of.

    With the current events causing disruptions in many places we will do our best to accommodate different skill levels, but may not be able to accept all applicants in order to provide a high quality experience for all attendees.

    We will strive to build groups based on skill, but if you can organize a group of 4-6 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.
    • Use of our bikes will be limited by sizes available for in town dates.
    • If providing your own bike for the in-town dates it must have front suspension, disk brakes, and be in good working order.

    What is included in the Adult Camp?

    • 3 days of lessons – 2 evenings in Kelowna at Knox Mountain and 1 full day at Big White, with an optional extra of 1 more day at Big White for $180.00 (+tax)
    • Instruction from our PMBI certified instructors
    • Bike use from Elevation Outdoors fleet (adult use depending on size available) and helmet
    • Rentals and lift tickets for Big White day and a 2-hour lesson from Big White instructors with guided afternoon riding
    • A whole lot of fun!
