Camps

With us, rookies and youngsters will spend exciting days in the bike park and learn how to mountain bike playfully and efficiently. In our 3-day long day camps we explore the trails according to your skill level. The first few sessions will take place within the Bike Area where you will learn the basics of gravity mountain biking. For our lunch breaks, we stop by a suitable mountain hut which is located close to the bike trails.

Further sessions will then take you to the flowline, the jumpline, or the downhill track. Finally, we conclude the day by watching the videos and photos that have been produced throughout the sessions in the bike school office.

While kids and teenagers are spending an eventful day in the bike park, we recommend that parents themselves should go for a couple of runs in the bike park or explore the diverse leisure facilities offered by the region Schladming-Dachstein.

Groups are divided respectively to the rider´s age and according to our skill levels RiDE. (beginner), eXplore. (intermediate) und PROGRESS. (expert) je nach Alter und Können ein.

Following contents are mediated in accordance to the skill level: cornering-, braking-, accelerating-, safety-, jumping techniques and much more.

Minimum age: 8 years; 8 – 16 year olds; younger/older riders upon inquiry!
Maximum number of participants per group: 8 people
Breaks: The lunch break takes place in one of the huts in the Bike Park Schladming or in the Bike Office at the valley station.

Furthermore, on the trails there are several halts allowing to rest sufficiently. The bike park is located in midst of nature which gives us the chance to occasionally see wildlife with the kids.

Good to know

Does the coaching also take place in bad weather?

Since we are in the outdoor segment with our sport, we have to be able to cope with any weather conditions, according to the well-known saying: “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!”

Coaching therefore takes place in all weathers!

In the event of imminent danger (e.g. thunderstorms), coaching will be interrupted at short notice to ensure the safety of the participants.

How can I determine my driving level in order to book the right course?

Level RiDE.

This is your first time on a mountain bike or you already have some experience on flat terrain (roads, dirt tracks etc.) Single trails or bike parks are new territory for you.

Level eXplore.

Have you already mastered the basic techniques of mountain biking and would like to develop them further and learn something new? You enjoy easy single trails, but struggle as soon as it gets steep, rooty or rocky. You have a little experience on difficult single trails or in bike parks, but would like to become more confident.

Level PROGRESS.

Berms, root jumps, rock gardens, jumplines, technical single trails or the World Cup Downhill make your heart beat faster? With our PROGRESS. Courses we increase your skill level individually and in a structured way.

Which routes are driven in the respective driving level during coaching?

Level RiDE. DOWNHILL

Downhill-oriented course. Start on flat terrain to learn the basic technique. Putting the basic technique into practice in the bike area/mini-bike park (green routes). This is followed by practicing what you have learned on the flowline (blue routes).

Level eXplore. DOWNHILL

Downhill-oriented course. Short repetition of basic technique on flat terrain. Refinement of the technique on the flow trail (blue route). Further implementation of the advanced basic technique on the single trail/rookie trail (red routes).

Level PROGRESS. DOWNHILL

Downhill-oriented course. Short repetition of basic technique on flat terrain. Refinement of the technique or “warm up” on the flow trail (blue route). Further implementation of the advanced basic/jump technique on the single trail/rookie trail (red routes) or in the downhill section or on the jumpline.

Level RiDE. UP-/DOWNHILL

Up- and downhill-oriented e-bike course. Start on flat terrain to learn the basic technique. Putting what you have learned into practice on the uphill trail or applying the basic technique downhill on the Flowline (blue route).

Level eXplore. UP-/DOWNHILL

Implementing what you have learned and refining the basic technique on the uphill trail or applying and refining the basic technique downhill on the flowline (blue route) and on the single trail/rookie trail (red routes).

In group courses, the right level plays a major role in order to achieve a certain homogeneity for the coaching. For private coaching, the level is adjusted individually on site according to previous experience and ability.

What minimum equipment do I need for coaching?
  • A mountain bike suitable for the bike park in maintained condition – fully (front & rear suspension) or hardtail (front suspension only). The hardtail is only conditionally suitable for blue trails!
  • Helmet – half-shell helmet (for green & blue trails) or full-face helmet (mandatory for red & black trails!)
  • Goggles – sports goggles or bike goggles
  • Gloves – full finger gloves recommended!
  • Additional protectors – such as knee and elbow pads – recommended!
  • Clothing suitable for the weather – e.g. weather protection in the form of a rain/wind jacket (possibly a change of clothes)
What if I have forgotten my equipment or it is incomplete?

Missing equipment can be purchased or rented at the Wexl Trails/Bikepark Planai Schladming bike rental shop. Mountain bikes should be reserved well in advance.
