Midnight Sun Women's Retreat in the Yukon

Boreale Backcountry Mountain Biking

NEW location! Enjoy flowy singletrack, incredible scenery and gourmet meals in this adventurous Yukon mountain bike retreat!

July 12 - 16, 2018

Boréale Biking joins forces with Sweet Skills Mountain Bike Coaching & Tera Meade Training for an inaugural retreat.

Every day is a new adventure! Tera, Emily, and Sylvie can't wait to show you this amazing place!

Carcross and Whitehorse boast a world class trail network that’s been little known until now. Trails range from flowy singletrack to stunning alpine descents and include super fun rock rolls and technical features that you’ll want to session with our Sweet Skills Coaches. Imagine all of this, plus incredible views in every direction.

At the end of each epic day, we’ll relax at the lodge with more amazing scenery and gourmet meals. Daily stretches with Tera Meade are on offer to help you limber up for the next day. Then top it all off with a hot tub and a cool drink.

And if you’re open to the full Yukon experience, you’ll stay up with the midnight sun!

Sweet Skills Yukon Women’s Mountain Bike Retreat suits the intermediate to advanced rider looking to pedal and learn in an inspiring setting with the best coaching. Small group instruction with a maximum of 6 participants to 1 coach.
