This program provides a variety of benefits to athletes such as exploring new and different trails in Summit County, meeting new friends, staying in shape for skiing and snowboarding, and progressing on a bike over three months time.
The program caters to a variety of abilities including intro level, enduro riding, downhill days at Keystone bike park, and training for the Summit Mountain Challenge bike series throughout the summer.
