ITINERARYIMG 4595

Day 1

Our adventure begins! After a spectacular flight into Whitehorse you’ll be picked up at the airport and dropped off in downtown Whitehorse for a self-guided wander through town. The lodge is a 30 minute drive away and we’ll get the first tour of the lodge at about 4pm. After checking into your rooms and meeting the group we’ll put our bikes together and coaches will be around to help, no worries! Soak in some sweet Yukon views from the deck then enjoy our first dinner together. *Driving to Boreale? We'll meet you there at 4pm :)

Day 2

YUK RT

Every morning starts with a relaxing stretch session with Tera followed by a well stocked breakfast table and endless coffee. Today we head to Carcross for our first day of riding where we’ll be treated to uphill shuttles, lots of coaching tips, and tons of fun riding. Skills for the day may include high speed cornering, descending and braking skills, rock rolls, technical riding and line choice and jumps and drops for the more advanced groups. These trails are so fun you’re not going to want to stop! We save a bit of time for a little wander around the historic town of Carcross and a well-deserved bevy at the local pub or haunted hotel. The shuttle will take us back to the lodge (20 mins) and shortly after we’ll have a bike maintenance session during appies. Soak in the hot tub or just relax in the peaceful setting while another amazing dinner is being made for you!

Day 3IMG 5391

Stretch out yesterday’s riding muscles and fuel yourself up for the day! Today we head into Whitehorse for a classic ride along the Yukon River Trail.  Enjoy some of Whitehorse’s best singletrack along Grey Mountain and break out into some stunning views along the river with lots of photo stops along the way. Lots of pedalling today and less skill sessioning as we wind our way through the trails back into town. After the shuttle back to the lodge, be treated to a foam rolling intro session with Tera or just soak it up in the hot tub… or both! Another amazing round of appies, dinner and desert awaits us.. Then relax in the lodge, hang out by the bonfire, and enjoy the midnight sun or the northern lights (depending on which camp you sign up for)

Day 4

Another stretch session and big breakfast greets you in the morning. Today we hit the alpine on Mt McIntyre! You’ll be blown away by the views, the trails and the whole adventure of the day! After hopping out of the shuttle we pedal up some more and are treated to 360 degree views of beautiful Yukon wilderness! Shred down the trails and stop along the way to session some sweet corners, technical sections, and rock gardens (for more advanced). Option to keep pedalling along the classic flowy Yukon trails or pull the plug early and hit the Brewery. Everyone meets back up at the Brewery then we head back to the lodge to fill ourselves with more delicious food. You will not want to go back home. Tonight’s another fun night and includes prizes for everyone!

Day 5

 TMP3597

The adventure is not done yet! Another early stretch and breakfast with a quick pack of the bags and we’re hoping onto the shuttle for a morning ride at Carcross. Revisit some of your favourite trails or try something new and dial in some skills for the last time. Back at the lodge we have a quick lunch while we pack our bikes and load up the shuttle by about 2pm to head back to the airport. Lots of high fives and hugs, new friends and awesome memories for a lifetime!
