Do you have solid mountain biking skills?

Have you flirted with descending technical terrain or even entering a DH race?

Then sign up for Evergreen’s Intro to Downhill class—a 4-day clinic designed to hone your skills to tackle new terrain safely. Our instructors have extensive Downhill and Enduro racing experience to help guide your journey to becoming a faster, stronger rider!

Instruction covers passive and active obstacle clearing, riding drops and jumps, and high speed cornering—and plenty more. 

It is then capped off with a day at Steven's Pass with some great lift accessed intense riding. Our instructors for the class have extensive Downhill and Enduro racing experience and will help guide you in your journey to being a faster, stronger rider!

To give you as much experience as possible, classes take place at Duthie Hill, Tiger Mountain, and Stevens Pass Bike Park (where your one-day lift pass included!). To participate riders must meet the following qualifications listed below. Please email Dan Bassett (dan@evergreenmtb.org) if you have questions.
