KIDS SUMMER SHREDDERS

The ultimate mountain bike coaching program for kids! The ZEP MTB Kids Summer Shred program includes coaching two days per week, from 9am - 3pm. Choose between Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday.

With a maximum of 5 groups in total, ZEP provides an efficient, easy drop-off and pick up location in the village, to save time and hassle for the parents.

Healthy, fresh lunches and afternoon treats are included in the program and provided by Connection Cafe at the Passive Haus!

Coaching will start in the Lost Lake trails, including adventures on the Valley Trail, visits to the pump tracks and riverside skills park. Depending on your child's age and skill, the groups have the options of exploring many trails through out the Whistler Valley. Coaching sessions in the Bike Park can be included, based on group ability, desire and readiness (lift tickets not included).

Safety, fun and learning for the kids is our priority (in that order). Groups take regular rests to ensure physical and mental well-being, and ensure the kids finish each day pumped on their ZEP MTB KIDS Summer Camp!

ZEP Coaches always maximize sessions for safety, risk management and skill progression, so kids can build the skills without the spills.
