The fastest way to gain skill and confidence in the Bike Park. You define your goals and your ICP instructor will develop a private teaching session tailored to help you achieve them. Lesson includes instructor and complimentary bike park ticket. For experienced riders, grab a quick 1 hour (or longer) private lesson for a refresher and/or tour of the mountain. We recommend those new to mountain biking sign up for at least a 2 hour lesson to ensure time to get through the basics and hit the trails. We also recommend one on one instruction for younger children.

Meeting Location - Mountain Adventure Center (MAC). Located at the top of Ballhooter Lift across from Junction Restaurant in the Village.

Dress & Rentals:


The MAC rents full-face helmets, chest and arm protectors, knee and shin protectors and these items are included with a bike rental or can be rented separately. Full suspension downhill or freeride bikes are required for all lessons. The MAC is also the main mountain bike retailer and many items listed below are available for purchase at this location.

Gloves - full fingered, flexible. Non-padded palms. Gardening gloves could work well. Unlike road riding gloves, where the point is to pad the palms, DH and FR gloves have thin palms to ensure a good grip on the handlebars, and full fingers to protect the skin from potential impacts.

Pants - the style is baggie shorts or moto pants, but jeans would also work as long as they allow free movement. Many riders like to wear padded cycling shorts under their baggies/motos. Shorts or pants made of thin fabric (i.e., basketball style shorts) don’t hold up well to impact and provide little protection... this also applies to cycling shorts worn without an additional layer on top.

Shirt - jersey or tee shirt. Most people don’t like the feel of body armor next to their skin (it’s plastic and can be uncomfortable), so a tee-shirt or tank top underneath is recommended.

Shoes – Light hiking shoes or boots will work best if you do not have your own downhill or freeride shoes. Skate shoes or running shoes may also work but aren’t usually as sturdy. DH specific shoes are usually “skate” style but are made of sturdy materials and have stiff soles with a fairly tacky surface for gripping the pedals. No sandals.

Socks - whatever works with your shoes. Shin guards can be uncomfortable on the skin, especially just above the ankle... some people wear taller socks for that reason. Socks also tend to get wet (from sweat or the environment), so wicking material is great but not critical.

Eye protection - Glasses or goggles with clear lenses (yellow and light amber can also work well) for actual trail riding. It can be dark in the woods.

Miscellaneous/optional - trail snacks, sun screen, rain jacket, hydration pack/water bottle.
