Whether you’re taking a gap year, career break, extended holiday, or you’re looking to secure a job for the following summer at Whistler Bike Park, then this is the course for you. Whistler Bike Park has more facilities and trails than any other Mountain Bike Park on the planet and you’ll be pleased to hear this particular course coincides with Crankworx, the world’s biggest Mountain Bike festival! So you’ll undoubtedly be cruising the bike park with a tonne of the world’s best Freestyle, Enduro and Downhill riders. Check out the RESORT TAB (above) for more info on what Whistler has to offer.

Our Whistler Coaches Camp is the most comprehensive Mountain Bike instructing course in the world with the most respected and useful  combination of qualifications offered by any instructor-training course. A large part of this course is focused on gaining the Whistler Bike Park Instructor Development Programme Level 2, an instructing certification geared towards ‘gravity fed riding’ which covers technical skills at all levels, jumps and drops. A smaller component is the CTC Trail Mountain Bike Leader Award, a highly respected and well-known qualification for guiding in the UK and the rest of Europe. Peak Leaders’ 3-week Instructor Academy and 5-week Coaches Camp are so well respected that they are the main source of new Mountain Bike instructors to Whistler Blackcomb every year!

Training will be 5 days a week. During those days we’ll use and abuse everything Whistler has to offer in that time; jumps, drops, alpine, flow and technical trails. You’ll find that sweet spot in a drift, venture into some of our favourite backcountry trails, and hang with new friends when the days are done. What you do on your days off is up to you, but rest assured our course leader will have plenty of activities planned.
