For Ages 5 to 6 Years Old

Mini Riders

Registration Now Open

Summer 2022

We are pleased to offer our Mini Riders mountain bike program at Crested Butte Mountain Resort again this summer!  
 
Developed for young riders ages five and six years old who can ride a pedal bike and are looking to build a foundation of skills that will transport them enthusiastically and safely into the sport of mountain biking. Under the guidance of our professional coaches, there is no better way for your child to experience the thrill of mountain biking in a supervised and controlled environment. 
 
Our trained coaches will work with these young athletes across all of our skills zones located at the resort. This program is aimed to build foundational skills that will remain with these kids as long as they yearn to bike. 
 
The day will be focused on biking skills and progression, but at this age we keep it all about fun! A variety of activities in the Adventure Park and around the resort will be available to mix it up as interest, weather and fatigue warrants. Whether or not athletes ride the lift to bike in the park will depend on the skill of the athletes as determined by the coaches and staff. It should be expected that sufficient time will be spent in the skills area around the base of the mountain where young athletes can best develop skills and confidence.  
 
We are not offering advanced mountain biking this summer. We will only operate on Green and Blue trails. We will not ride on Black trails or Double Black trails. Even if your child advances in skill level to be able to ride these advanced trails, they will be kept on Blue trails with camp.

A good fitting bike specific helmet, closed toe shoes (sneakers), water bottle or hydration pack, gloves, and eyewear are required. Elbow and knee pads are strongly encouraged. Lift access is included. 
 
Programming will be based out of the CBMR base area.
