Downhill Clinic

Learn more about gravity mountain biking from Winter Park Resort’s gravity coaches and some of the best collegiate cycling coaches in the country. We will start with a walking inspection, and then we will take the lifts up with bikes to ride down. The trails we are selecting are technical and will require appropriate bikes with suspension. There will be an additional emphasis on cycling opportunities in college as well! This will also be a great opportunity to sharpen your DH skills or to be introduced for the first time. The clinic is free, but a lift ticket is required. Including walking inspection, we estimate this to be finished by noon. Expect approximately 4 hours total. Please purchase lift tickets in advance.
