Course Description:

Experience Level needed: If you are comfortable riding beginner to intermediate single

track trails with some roots and rocks and moderate climbs you are ready to explore.

A flat to moderate single-track trail along with man-made and natural obstacles will be used for training.


What you need to bring: Helmet, Mountain bike in good mechanical order, water,

snacks and weather-appropriate clothing.


What: This ½ day course brings PSIA-AASI Certified Instructors and NSP Patrollers

together to focus on the identification and transference of skills from sport to sport. We'll

explore the symbiosis between sports, emphasizing terrain management strategies and

movements, and the connection to skiing and snowboarding fundamentals. In this

course, participants will focus on less apparent skill exchanges. For instance, visual

acuity - in relation to how we read and anticipate terrain and the corresponding

movements we might make. This is not an intro to mountain biking course; rather, a

course connecting similar movements and concepts between mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding.

 

Why: Mountain Biking on single-track trails offers excellent opportunities to illustrate and

enhance our understanding of movement and performance fundamentals. Mountain

Biking is a sport of dynamic balance, just as it is with skiing and snowboarding. Snow

Sports and Mountain Biking sports both require awareness and management of

surfaces, conditions, and obstacles. Both benefit from skillful anticipation and

application of outside and internal forces, allowing us to safely and confidently move

forward. Similar as these sports are, Mountain Biking brings a more intensive "heads

up," "eyes forward"; experience to the participant while slowing other skill applications

suitably for enhanced body awareness.

 

How: Using various features of single-track trails to facilitate learning. Participants will

explore similarities and differences between skiing, snowboarding, and mountain bike

fundamentals as well as the movements needed to maintain balance, make turns,

handle changing trail conditions, and manage speed.


The clinic will start with a safety and equipment review. There will be two separate rides

with breaks for discussion in between. Each ride will be 2-1/2 to 5 miles in length on

beginner and intermediate single-track trails with some complex but optional features.


Participation in both rides and clinics will be required to obtain credit. Intensity will vary by

participant from moderate to vigorous.


Time: We will meet at the trailhead starting at 8:30 am and be ready to roll with our bikes at

9 am. The clinic will conclude around 1 pm (earlier depending on the groups riding

pace).
