PRESS RELEASE: ZEP Mountain Bike Camps

ZEP Mountain Bike Camps are excited to announce details for our line up of 2020 mountain bike skills camps! Located in Whistler, our coaching programs take place on some of the best trails in the world, including the famous Whistler Bike Park. With twenty years of coaching experience and some of the industry's top coaches, our camps guarantee to take riders skills, confidence and fun to the next level.


Every camp or session is focused on personalized and professional coaching, which is tailored to individual abilities and needs. With small group sizes (no more than 4 or 5 in a group), campers gain maximum fun and value, while working towards and often exceeding their personal riding goals.

From one-week camps, private coaching, weekend and women’s only camps to weekly programs for locals, there is something for everyone to improve their skills and confidence, and get stoked for more biking!
bigquotesI would like to thank Paul and Ross for another fantastic camp, in the best learning environment that is Whistler. These guys have the ability to get the best out of your riding and giving you the knowledge to improve your riding beyond what you thought you were capable of. Their relaxed and flexible way they teach gives you the confidence to take what you learn and put it in practice anywhere, on any trail, anytime. Sam

ZEP Instructor Training Camp

bigquotesLast summer was, without doubt, one of the best! After 15+yrs of riding I decided it was time to invest; to take myself seriously as a mountain biker and so it meant a lot that ZEP did too... by the end of the season I was literally (and am still) riding beyond my wildest dreams. And for that, I’ll forever be grateful to ZEP. Thank you!Clair

bigquotesMy riding and confidence has improved GREATLY. I rode Fromme and Seymore over the last few days, plus Stage 5 of the EWS course at Whistler yesterday (plus other runs) and had an absolute blast, and put all the lessons into play. Thanks again, and I look forward to future sessions with ZEP!"Rob

bigquotesI've been working with Paul for a couple years but the critical turning point for me was the first day, first lap. I was following Paul and somehow, I swear without looking back, he had already picked out the major tweak in my cornering technique that had been derailing me for years. It's been great to work with a real coach, with such an understanding of the fundamentals that he can recognize a small element like that and then help me to build on it, so quickly.Grant

 Spent 2 days doing private lessons with Zep last summer during my first Whistler trip. I’m still enjoying the permanent gains to my riding and also have been working with one of their coaches local to me on the East Coast. Top notch coaching system. Will benefit anyone at any level.

 Some buddies pooled our money a few years ago for a day lesson with Darren from Endless Bikes. We spent the day in Whistler hitting the bike park, and even though most of us had been riding for almost a decade, we all still rode away with some new tips and tricks, and a ton more confidence. It was well worth it.

 If Whistler opens....... So, who else is waiting until they buy their pass this season?
If there are travel restrictions in place, I can't see Vail opening the hill for financial reasons.

 Given the CDC recommendation for groups under 50 for the next 8 weeks, I’m just hoping my local parks open, never mind a place as busy as Whistler.

 Given that Whistler just closed do we know if the bike park will be open this summer?
