Mountain Biking



That's a wrap for Summer 2021 Mountain Bike Programs! Thanks for an awesome season and see you on the trails next summer! 

Thanks to all of the athletes and families that participated in our Summer Bike programming. 

This summer we had 508 athletes in bike programming, which is close to double our program enrollment from last summer. Collectively, our riders covered around 5,000 miles throughout the 2021 summer. 
 
Mountain Biking Snowmass

At the core of our mountain bike programming is skill development, confidence, risk management and progression inside a team environment.  Whether your athlete leans toward endurance or gravity, the fundamentals of speed control, cornering, body position, jumping/air awareness, climbing, pumping, and line choice all remain the same. Regardless of discipline focus, all groups will ride trails and be expected to pedal. 
 
Trail stewardship, trail building and maintenance, bike maintenance and trail etiquette are all integral to AVSC mountain bike programming. 

All programming will be based out of Crown Mountain Park in El Jebel.  Crown Mountain Park has spent years planning and investing in cycling related infrastructure (dirt jumps, pumptrack, airbag, BMX track, cross-country skills trails).  AVSC Mountain Bike Programs are excited to call Crown Mountain Park home.

Scholarships are available, please contact Meredith Elwell Melwell@teamavsc.org for more information. If you are in need of equipment, you may be able to borrow a bike from AVSC’s fleet – contact Meredith!
