Program Overview

CALLING ALL FEMALE RIDERS!! Mt. Washington Alpine Resort is proud to once again team up with Gravity MTB to offer a 2-day lift-accessed “Ladies Only” clinic at Vancouver Island’s mountain bike destination resort!

The clinic will be geared towards ladies who are new to the sport of mountain biking as well as experienced riders who are looking to improve their skills while experiencing the thrill of riding in a bike park. It will focus on our Green and entry-level Blue trails and teach basic skills such as body position, cornering, braking/accelerating, line choice, trail manoeuvres as well as Bike Park etiquette and safety.


The weekend will be made up of professional instruction by PMBIA-certified coaches as well as a Sports Psychology Session on day 1 as well as a Core Strength and Injury Prevention presentation on day 2. Stunning views and and a laid-back atmosphere with like-minded ladies paired with professionally maintained, flowy trails will make for a very memorable weekend.



SATURDAY (day 1) – Welcome & Intro to the Mt. Washington Bike Park!

Our clinic will kick off Saturday morning with check-in and a light breakfast of coffee, tea and pastries in Ted’s Grill between 8:30 am and 9:30 am. After breakfast, we’ll have a quick coach and participant “Meet and Greet” as well as group assignments for the weekend. We’ll then split into pre-assigned groups and head out on the trails for some FUN!!


SUNDAY (day 2) – Mt. Washington!

Breakfast is served once again in Ted’s before heading out on the trails, putting our “Day 1” skills to use. Immediately after another successful day of riding and racing, we’ll regroup in the Eagleview Bistro for refreshments and light hors d’oeuvres as well as some awesome giveaways before saying “See you later!”

Winter 2020-2021 FAQs

Need Help With Alpine Lift Tickets? Please Read!

Q. How can I be guaranteed lift access for the day I want to ski?
A) 
Alpine Tickets are now available to reserve online for the rest of the season and may sell out on holidays and weekends. We will not have full-day tickets to buy here at the resort, and half-days and specialty tickets will only be available at a kiosk if full-days have not already sold out. Reserve your days in advance, online. 6ixPak tickets do not require reservations. This doesn't include pre-arranged tickets such as 2-for-1 Passes from VIB, or non-date specific tickets.   Purchase Your Tickets & Learn More ->

Q. I've booked a day to ski, but I couldn't make it, or need to reschedule for a later date:
A.
If you need to cancel your reserved lift tickets, please call us or fill out a Contact Form to change to a day later in the season, but a specific visit date is required and ticket price must be brought up to that requested current day's rate if different. This can't be done online. Your patience is appreciated in hearing back from our team. 

Q. Buying a New Card and want to Reload for Next Time? Need Tickets for Multiple Days?
A.
You need to have your physical RFID card in-hand to reload tickets. Reserve your day on a new card, and pick up the card the morning you've planned to ski. If buying tickets for multiple days, reserve for one-day first and pick up your new card first. Then once you have the card, go ahead and reload more days online.

Q. Does my lesson or rental include a lift ticket?
A. 
No, you need to purchase your Alpine Lift Ticket separately from lessons and rentals. 

Q. How can I buy tickets for Night Skiing?
A.
Reload or purchase a new card online. Night Ski tickets will also be available at the kiosk, but it is encouraged to buy in advance before you arrive.  

Q. What about discounted tickets such as Student, Military, Buddy Passes, etc.?
A. 
Discounted tickets are only available in-person at a ticket kiosk if full-day tickets have not yet sold out online. We appreciate your understanding.   

Q. What is needed for Tots 6 & under?
A. 
Tots ski free, but please ensure you have tickets arranged for yourself before you arrive on  busy weekends and holidays. Visit a ticket kiosk to get your Tots free ticket/waiver.
