Designed for the intermediate rider looking to improve their cornering skills. We will dive deeper into the physics of cornering and develop better line choice, more aggressive body position and an understanding of a variety of turns. During this session, we will be tackling corners on blue & black trails.
Who is this course for?
You have been biking for a few years and can ride most blue and some black trails in Squamish. You’re familiar with proper body and bike positioning when cornering but you’d like to improve corners for maximum flow on the trail. The ideal candidate has completed our Intermediate 4-pack or equivalent experience.
Bike skills needed: You enjoy riding blue trails in Squamish and can tackle most sections but want to gain confidence and speed on flow trails like Half/Full Nelson and Miki’s Magic.
Endurance needed: You lead an active lifestyle and are comfortable spending 2 hours on your bike, pedalling at a conversational pace uphill.
What will you learn?
- Body positioning for flat and bermed corners

"I'm a rookie at MTB but with a lot of history riding around forests on bikes when younger, so I tend to tackle trails and features with zero knowledge, 100% instinct, so I decided to go get some professional instruction to see how I can up my game. The instructor was great and I really enjoyed the lesson and the chats we had on the climb up. I definitely discovered a few bad habits that I was able to pay attention to and hopefully have now rectified, and the instructor really helped me to understand how to take time to get off the bike and walk features, observing them from many angles before attempting them for the first time, picking a line according to my ability - this has given me a lot of confidence, culminating in me nailing a major rock roll the day after that I would have never tried before. Definitely worth it. Can't recommend enough."
"A perfect way to tire out the kids! We mountain biked one day and the next (we were too tired) we got them dirt jumpers and saw another fantastic side of the Squamish bike community."
