  • More Details

    GEAR NEEDED:

    Bike: Downhill or Enduro in good working order with minimum 150mm+ of travel.  Protective Gear/Attire: The following is mandatory for this clinic; Full face helmet, eye protection, knee pads, elbow pads and full finger gloves.  We highly recommend dressing in appropriate bike clothes for the weather that day, and packing/wearing extra layers just in case.  Participants must also also have a multi-tool to repair anything on their bike as well as tube, tire levers and pump.  *Please ride in shoes/compatible pedals that you normally ride in – this is not the time to be learning a new system. For example learning to ride clipped in or vice versa. Food/Water: Please pack a lunch, lots of snacks and enough water to sustain you through 5 hours on your bike. We will stop for a break.

    LIFT TICKETS:

    Lift tickets to the bike park are not included in the camp price and need to be purchased separately.  Prices are not yet listed by Whistler Bike Park. Participants will be emailed this info once it’s available.

    LODGING:

    Lodging is not provided but can be booked through the SilverStar Central Reservations.

    GROUPS:

    Participants will be grouped together by their ability level.  The questionnaire that you fill out during registration will guide us on where to place you.  We do our best to match similar levels together, but given the nature of the sport there will always be some differences in ability and fitness levels within every group.  These differences can offer a great opportunity to peer learn – the most advanced rider can always benefit  from ‘slowing down and getting back to basics’ and a less experienced rider can progress from riding with more advanced riders in a supportive environment.

    WAIVERS:

    Each guest will be required to sign a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement at time of registration, prior to start of trip. Click here to view and fill in the online waiver at time of booking.  Only one waiver per season needs to be filled out (if you’re doing more than 1 event with us). Participants are required to inform Sweet Skills of any allergies, medical conditions or injuries that might affect their riding or health and any medications taken.

    AGE:

    Minimum required age is 18 for our camps and clinics. Requests can be made on a case-by-case basis. It’s recommended for youth between the ages of 14 and 18 to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Ensure your travel insurance covers you and your equipment and that your current health insurance covers the unforeseen like medical flights and back-country emergency rescue.

Should Sweet Skills need to cancel or reschedule your reservation you will be offered 100% credit toreschedule for another date, or option of a full refund.

    Cancellations due to a 3rd Party/Unforeseen Circumstances:

    Should your booking need to be cancelled due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control, including

    (but not limited to): border closures, cancellations of any sort from Lodges or other 3rd party operators, government-initiated shutdowns due to a pandemic or wildfire, extreme weather which is deemed by Sweet Skills to be a safety issue. Sweet Skills may offer you a 100% credit to reschedule for another date, or give you the option of a full refund minus 10% of the deposit paid.

    Should any necessary changes affect your pre and/or post-tour travel plans, Sweet Skills will not be responsible for additional expenses incurred by guests (non-refundable airline tickets, rental cars, hotel reservations, etc.) Again, we recommend you have purchased your own trip insurance policy.

    ITINERARY CHANGES & Weather:

    Every attempt will be made to adhere to our scheduled itinerary, we do not plan to make changes ahead of time. However, participants acknowledge and willingly accept the possibility of unexpected changes to our route, timings and itinerary. Safety issues, weather and/or any extenuating circumstances beyond our control may contribute to this possibility. Should these changes affect your pre and/or post-tour travel plans, Sweet Skills will not be responsible for additional expenses incurred by guests (non-refundable airline tickets, rental cars, hotel reservations, etc.). No refunds will be given for itinerary changes. We ride rain or shine! Riding in the mountains means we can encounter variable weather at any time and participants must be prepared for this. Weather can also change very last minute, therefore we do not cancel trips with forecasted rain or smoke unless our accommodation and transportation partners are shut down.
