Extreme Riders – Summer

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.

To be riding in Extreme Riders, you have to have experience with TTFs, riding steep up and down hills, skinnies, ladders, drops and wall rides.  We will continue to build your skills and confidence in these areas.
