LESSON INFORMATION

Groups will ride all the over the valley experiencing all the trails Whistler has to offer during the Cross Country portion and once riders are ready will move into the Whistler Bike Park to develop their downhill skills.
  • All programs summer (July and August) include a season's pass for the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
  • All programs are season long, no drop-ins available.

WHICH PROGRAM SHOULD I CHOOSE?

CHOOSE MINI SHREDDERS

  • Is your child aged 3, 4 or 5 and haven't started school yet? Are they riding a run bike or a two wheel pedal bike? Are they just starting out and looking to develop mountain bike skills? Does your 3 - 5 year old already shred on the trails? We have groups for run bikers, new 2 wheel riders and those already comfortable on the trails. We have programs in the spring, summer and fall.
The DFX MINI SHREDDER program will help your child learn the skills they need to know to get started on XC trails.
