About the event

Join us in our 1st Sweet Riders/SheShreds Collaboration Clinic. Learning in the beautiful setting of Crowsnest Pass at Pass PowderKeg Ski Hill skill park and trails. Be prepared for two full days in the saddle and work on finding flow, nativgating tight switchbacks and riding with control and stability. Being in the folds of the mountains, smelling the pines, breathing the crisp air, encouraging one another, doing features you thought impossible and shredding some trails is what this weekend is all about. 

Teaching topics are designed with flexibilty around our participants goals - so let us know what you want to work on or what you'd like to improve. Typical topics include: balance, cornering (flat & bermed), roll downs, descending, and getting air when your ready!! This event is open to the public (women and non-binary adults only), and for beginner to strong intermediate riders.

Participants are responsible for the costs of accomodation, transportation and food. From camping to motels and AirBnBs, we can point you to some cozy spots as well as recommend delicious wood fire pizzas and watering holes - we know them well!

Skilled coaches will show you the best trails for the group while providing personalized feedback to improve your experience on your bike!


Pre-weekend we have a welcome package that outlines what to bring, what to wear, weather espected, trail conditions and meet-up locations.  You will have the contacts of the other participants if you choose to organize carpooling and group accomodations. You will recieve the waiver package via email two weeks ahead of the weekend and you are encouraged to read it ahead of signing it and seek medical and/or legal consult, if needed.  The waivers can be found here.

Instructor details:

Certified Professional Mountain Bike Instructors will guide the group, with a maximum instructor to participant ratio of 1:7. Your instructor is familiar with the specified trails and Crowsnest Pass, AB as well as holds Standard First Aid certification and carries the recommended first aid kits and basic tools for mechanical issues. 

What to bring:

1. Well tuned up mountain bike (proper size, dual suspension). If you need something more capable, we can help with a rental, but you will need to be able to transport it. 

2. Pedals - please have flat pedals on your bike. This is safer to learn and helps to build confidence when you can quickly step off your bike. Flats ensure proper foot/pedaling technique, so challenge yourself to try flats a few times prior to the weekend. If you are much more comfortable on clips, then feel free to use them, but do let us know so we can plan accordingly.  

3. Shoes to match your pedals. Flat soled cycling shoes are ideal. Skate shoes are a good second runner up. Runners will do. Please do not wear hiking boots. Closed-toe is required. Clips require shoes with matching cleats. 

4. Weather appropriate clothing - check the weather!

5. Helmet - we only got one brain! If you have a full face helmet this would be recommended, but a regular helmet works great too. Whatever you feel most comfortable with! 

6. Cycling gloves (full-fingered) are recommended 

7. Padded shorts (also known as chamois) are recommended. Since this is a downhill clinic, you may not want to wear these. Personal preference! 

8. Hydration system (water bottles or knapsack with hydration bladder)

9. Snacks - YUM

10. Sunscreen & Bug spray (we stop and session features a lot, this is a must!) 

11. Spare tube that fits your bike

12. Leg/arm pads. Strongly recommended. Other padding is up to you - sometimes this helps our mental game too!  

Our COVID-19 modifications require that all participants (including coaches) self-screen for symptoms prior to attending, wash their hands, disinfect their bikes. Hand sanitizer and disinfectant will be available.
