NORTH CREEK, NY- Gore Mountain welcomes downhill mountain bikers to full-day and morning-only camps on Saturday, August 11. Learn to ride with more control, climb efficiently, and descend downhill mountain biking tracks with new skill and confidence. During the morning session 9am-noon, bikers spend time training in Gore's agility park and practicing on Base Area and Ski Bowl cross-country trails. The afternoon session 12:45pm-3:30pm incorporates the thrill of gondola-serviced riding with lots of help for tackling the more advanced downhill terrain. Camps are for beginner and intermediate riders, ages 10 and up. The full-day camp is $55, or $65 with lunch, and the morning-only session is $40.
