We will help you develop your ability and confidence to land softly and smoothly to help maintain that flow. We will also provide you with a framework to develop your knowledge of the ‘why to’ not just the ‘how to'. Full Face helmets are mandatory.

Below are some guidelines on the difficulty of our courses, it is designed to ensure you do not book on a course that is too difficult for you.

These are the minimum requirements to ensure that the group functions effectively. If your skills are above the minimum requirement you can still book on and learn a lot from a course. For example you may ride black runs weekly but have a skills gap regarding corners. Carving Corners is an intermediate course and is therefore suitable for you as an advanced rider.
