Explore the Shore

Explore The Shore takes your adventurer on a variety of classic North Shore activities.  Not only will we explore the world famous mountain bike trails of The Shore, but we will also experience the Mountain Ropes Course on Grouse Mountain, kayak in Deep Cove, the Forest Quest program in Lynn Canyon with the Ecology Center and the BC AdventureSmart, Hug a Tree and Survive program.

On Day 1, riders will be divided into groups based on skill.  At Coaches’ discretion, the more advanced skill groups will have the opportunity to ride trails on Fromme, such as Bobsled, Roadside Attraction, Upper Griffen and King of The Shore.  Parents will be notified the day prior if their child’s group will be riding Fromme.
