Skills Sessions
Skill sessions will mostly take place in a flat zone. The skills introduced to riders will depend on experience and previous training. The skills range from fundamentals, cornering (flat vs berm, slow vs fast), wheel lifts, and technical terrain skills.

Guided Rides
All rides will start from Tahoe XC. Rides will range from 5 to 15 miles depending on experience and fitness. You can expect a 500 to 2000 ft elevation gain. The trails surrounding Tahoe XC are mostly smooth with some rocky, technical terrain. Your coach will pick a ride suitable for your group’s ability and fitness.
