gain skills in order to experience the thrills.
Whether it's skill enhancement or a unique athletic adventure tour, our staff of top-rated** medically trained instructors will customize the outdoor experience to the individual or private group's desires.

The bottom line: you will get to "the fun part" of aerobic adventure sports in the shortest possible time frame, thus maximize your precious time in the mountains.
Mountain biking adventures, our most popular programs, feature a variety of trails ranging from gentle river trails to spectacular rolling jeep roads and Aspen/Snowmass' most exciting singletracks. Quickly improve your handling, downhilling and climbing skills in a private lesson or group clinic from Aspen's original mountain biking instructors or enjoy a private adventure tour, spiced up with some basic skills. Why take another "gravity tour", when you can truly master the skills of mountain biking for a lifetime of adventure and fitness? Adventure Tour Packages-Mountain Biking and Hiking
Road biking instruction is an opportunity to work on efficiency- both body positioning and pedal stroke. You will improve climbing efficiency and become safer and more comfortable on the descents. Learn NEW relaxation and pedaling skills, which will make your rides more efficient, comfortable and enjoyable. More advanced riders will also master drafting and cornering techniques.

If you’re looking for a pure and simple mountain workout, we’ve got just what you want. Experience “the locals’ workout” with a two to three hour power hike, utilizing extendable Nordic hiking poles, or enjoy a slower paced endurance hike. Our instructors will adjust the pacing to your fitness level. The use of poles adds balance, stability and almost twice the calorie burn to your workout. Transportation, basic hiking skills, trekking poles, bottled water and NEW Powerbar TM energy snacks are included. And you don't have to be Scandinavian to enjoy these hikes!
