Classes

Evergreen East’s mountain bike skills classes are designed to make you a better rider — whether you’re brand new or have been mountain biking for years. Our certified instructors are dedicated to helping you have fun, ride confidently, and overcome obstacles while advancing to the next level of riding.

 

Our classes offer a low student-to-instructor ratio for personalized feedback and instruction. Each skill is carefully demonstrated and broken down before progressing onto practice and drills. And at the end of the day you can apply all your newly learned skills during a trail ride. We hope to see you in one of our skills classes this year!

 

Evergreen East provides Fundamental, Intermediate, and Freeride skills classes for participants 14-and-up. In addition, we offer a Fundamental Women class lead by female instructors. Classes are located at Camp Sekani unless otherwise noted. Check below to find out more about each class or email us at classes[@]evergreeneast.org.
