NEW DATES! The Dirt Girls DH camp with coach Lorraine Blancher is a go! We're bringing Lorraine up from BC for a two-day camp the weekend of July 5 and 6 July 26th and 27th. Local coach Kate White has also been recruited.
The camp will be for two levels of riders. The "beginner" level will be for strong beginner to intermediate riders who feel comfortable riding the downhills on trails like Southpaw. The second level will be for more advanced riders who comfortably descend trails like Girlfriend and SFD. The cost of the camp will be $350 (CMBC members only). This includes two full days of instruction in Whitehorse and Carcross, plus lunches, snacks and shuttles up the mountains. This price is comparable to weekend camps outside the Yukon but we're bringing the amazing instructors to the Yukon! Big thanks to CMBC member Deanna who brought the idea to the CMBC board and has helped make this event happen.
Note: Full suspension bikes are required. Full face helmets are strongly recommended. Armour is encouraged.
