Extreme Riders – Summer

Extreme Riders - Summer/Kilmer - June  Extreme Riders - Summer July and August

An Escape Adventures Classic!!

Conquer the legendary trails on Fromme and Seymour Mountains.  Shred with the Escape Team Coaches who have grown up riding these trails.  Spend time exploring trails, sessioning TTFs (technical trail features), reading lines, practicing skinnies, ladders, drops, wall rides, and everything else The Shore has to offer.

Trails to be explored range from Bobsled, Floppy Bunny, Expresso, Crinkum’ Crankum, and Seventh Secret on Fromme to the Seymour Mountain trails such as Corkscrew, Asian Adonis, John Deere, Pingu and Pangor.  This is to name only a few – there are so many more!!

All Extreme Riders will be assessed on day 1 and placed into appropriate skill groups.  As the week progresses, and your Extreme Riders’ skills progress, your rider may be moved between skill levels.

 

8-13+ yrs. 1:6

Riders will have the opportunity to give back to their trails by spending time involved in trail maintenance through the NSMBA Youth Stewardship Program.  In 2017, our riders gave 370+ hours of time working on the trails.  Brent Hillier, NSMBA Trail Builder and DNV Permit Holder on Upper & Lower Griffen, provides excellent instruction and guidance.
