The ultimate Mountain Bike trip. Why ride uphill when you can fly to the top by helicopter and enjoy the ride down? After an introduction mountain bike technique and a gear fitting session with your professional mountain biking guide, you’ll fly to the trailhead to begin an epic descent to the picturesque valley and lake below. Trails and terrain choice can be tailored to beginner, intermediate or advanced riders. Enjoy the spectacular views from both the helicopter and the bike trails.
