Bike Clinics and Programs

Afternoon Beginner Package

Are you new to downhill mountain biking or have limited experience with the sport? Would you like to learn the basic downhill mountain biking skills of stance, braking and cornering? Sign up for our Afternoon Beginner Package led by our professionally trained coaches. You’ll start in our Skills Area before progressing up the mountain. Participants must be 9 years or older. (Also available at regular rates in the morning.)


Men's and Women's Twilight Clinics

The Men’s and Women’s Twilight Clinics will take place on June 20, July 4, July 18, August 1 and August 15, 2018, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m, during this summer’s Wednesday evening Twilight Ride Series. Our mountain bike coaches will share techniques to help you improve your mountain biking skills as well as the knowledge to navigate Deer Valley’s diverse trails. The separate Men’s and Women’s Twilight Clinics each have a maximum of five riders per coach, are for intermediate level riders and above and for those who are at least 14 years of age.


Kids Downhill/Freeride Program

The Kids Downhill/Freeride Program is on Tuesday afternoons from 2 to 5 p.m., June 19 through August 21. This special program is for children who are 9 to 14 years of age and possess intermediate level mountain biking skills and above. With a maximum of five children per mountain bike coach, your child will receive personalized instruction and coaching on downhill and freeride skills, as well as a weekly report card to share their progression with you.

A Punch Card may be purchased for five to 10 sessions and includes a full day, all lifts Gold Pass. The Punch Card offers some great perks and flexibility. Your child can ride earlier in the day and enjoy the trails with their Gold Pass before the program session begins. Another benefit of the Punch Card is that once purchased, if your child would like to attend more sessions, the card may be upgraded to a higher number of sessions and the pricing will be adjusted accordingly. And, after the program ends, your child can take one afternoon Kids Clinic at the same discounted rate as the program rate from August 22 through the end of the season. Please note that session dates need to be selected at time of purchase.
