KIDS PROGRAM 2020

DFX Park

DFX PARK is for riders of a novice to expert level who want to focus on Downhill riding in the Whistler Bike Park. Groups will ride trails suitable to their speed and ability. Riders will develop and fine tune bike handling skills, riding at safe speeds, working on correct jumping, cornering and dropping technique. Our coaches will work on all areas of skill development needed to tackle trails safely.

Stoke your stoke


Once your child has the basics of downhill mountain biking dialed in from attending our DFX Daily lessons or DFX Club program our highly certified and experience coaches will continue to take their skills to the next level. Whether there are already shredding Aline and Dirt Merchant, want to follow in the footsteps of other ex DFX’ers like Seth Sherlock and Lucas Cruz into DH racing or they are just starting to tackle technical blues and looking to learn to jump we have a group for your young shredder.
