Alien Adventures – Weekend/Spring

Why Aliens?  – because that is what you look like with a full face helmet, goggles, armour and gloves, all of many crazy colours, while flying down the trail with such speed you are unrecognizable…….hence an Unidentified Flying Object!!

Join the Escape Team to explore trails on Saturday mornings.  Go for a ride, practice your skills, build on the skills you already have and gain some new skills.

Skills only get better with practice, so come out with the Escape Team and put a few more kilometers on those tires!!

This program is available for riders between the ages of 5 to 13 years and older.  Those riding in the Demonstration Forest, The Rippers, are at the earlier stages of their skill building (5 to 8 years and older).  Riders, taking to the trails on Fromme, The Shore Shredders, have a skill set which allows them to comfortably ride Bobsled and the trails lower than Bobsled.  The Extreme Riders, also on Fromme, have many years of riding experience and want to continue to add skills to their knowledge base.  The Extreme Riders will explore all trails on Fromme Mountain.
