The camp takes place in the famous Whistler Valley Trails, providing the ultimate, diverse training ground with trails for all abilities. Our friendly, fully certified ZEP Coaches, will help develop your riding and confidence to new heights!
We often spend the mornings in the skills park, pump tracks, dirt jumps and easier trails to maximize your skill development and afternoons in the incredible valley trails to apply your new-found skills! Whatever your level, Whistler has the terrain and ZEP has the coaches to guarantee your progression and good times! Just bring your Enduro bike, helmets and pads... and we'll do the rest.
ZEP specializes in personalized, tailored coaching in small groups with no more than 5 to a group. Better yet, find four friends and book a camp to yourselves!
This camp is recommended for physically fit, intermediate riders and beyond. Riding for a week in Whistler is physically and technically demanding.
WHAT TO BRING
A good quality full suspension bike, with hydraulic disc brakes and downhill or enduro tires for grip and puncture protection. We recommend a enduro style bike; one with 5 or more inches of front and rear wheel travel, and with a fairly slack head angle for stability.
Helmets and knee pads are mandatory. Arm and spine protection is recommended, but up to you; also gloves, hydration pack with water, snacks, tools and a spare tube.
Quality, full suspension, rental bikes and helmets are available, from Evolution Bike Shop.
WHY CHOOSE ZEP?
Simply put, mountain bike coaching is what we do. Coaching is our profession. ZEP and our coaches have spent more time developing mountain bike teaching programs, methodology and training mountain bike instructors, than literally any other company in the world, period… Read more...
Indeed, ZEP pioneered and co-founded the PMBIA… the world’s most recognized and largest provider of mountain bike instructor certification courses.
Every camp has its niche, but ZEP’s power is on how much time our coaches have spent training and getting certified as professional, full time coaches. Our coaches don’t teach part time through the summer months. They’re not pro-riders with a casual interest in coaching. The ZEP coaches are career-focused, full time professional coaches, and the difference that makes to your riding and learning experience is significant. The best way to find out is to book a ZEP camp today!
EVERY ZEP CAMP IS TAILORED
Because our coaches have so much more training and experience, it is much easier for them to genuinely tailor each day of the camp, specific to the group and individual needs. While of course each camp has an overall outline, our ZEP coaches make sure each day is customized to provide the best possible outcome. If you guys don’t fancy jumps that day, no worries. If it’s too wet to ride roots that day, too easy! If you guys want to step it up to some double blacks and are ready, let’s go! ZEP camps are therefore the most progressive and customized programs in the industry today.
ZEP’S SKILL-BASED TEACHING
Many coaches still focus too heavily on maneuver or terrain based teaching. While these are still effective coaching tools, Skills-based teaching (which has been around for over 50 years in skiing) is the most effective approach when breaking down riders’ techniques, and teaching on trails.
For example, the ZEP coaches may spend a lot of time developing your Position & Balance, which will help your cornering, jumping, braking and steeps, all in one go!! Skill-based teaching is an incredibly efficient approach to learning and also allows a coach to teach a group with different ability levels the same techniques, while ensuring everyone is still having fun and being personally challenged.
OUR HERITAGE & RESULTS
The feedback we hear every year is, “I wish I had taken a ZEP camp sooner!”. 2021 will be our 15th year training riders in Whistler and we’re looking forward to seeing so many of our return clients for more! ZEP’s average customer experience rating is 9/10.
