Teen Down Hill MTB camp in Morzine

Take your riding to another level, explore the Portes du Soleil area and learn to manage yourself in the mountains with 4 full days of coaching and more from our pro instructors.

4 epic days of riding around the Portes du Soleil to develop your skills and learn the essentials of safety, mechanics and being savvy on the trails.
Our camp’s are specially designed for 12 to 15 year olds, with a maximum of 6 riders per group. And it’s not all jumps and berms (though there are plenty of those) there’s a session with a pro photographer, eyeryone takes home a goodie bag, our friends at Santa Cruz run a special private mechanics session, there’s time for bike chat over lunch which is included and more.
We’ve found that it’s a win win for parents and teenagers alike. The riders have an awesome time and the parents know they’re in safe hands and learning essential skills both on and off the bike to become better and safer riders.

We recognise it’s not always easy to bring your own bike though and can help you organise rental of an excellent bike from our buddies at FB Freeride.

Again, these can also be hired from FB Freeride.
