In this Cornering 101 class we will introduce the concepts of angulation, weight distribution, and footwork in the context of shallow slalom corners and deeper sweeping corners. Students will have ample opportunity to practice in a controlled environment before taking their knowledge to the trails. 

Our Advanced Classes are great for building good techniques & habits for specific skills. Each 90 min class will focus on a specific skill or group of skills that will help you ride advanced terrain with confidence. Instruction is provided by Nicole Cyr, a PMBIA-certified and experienced instructor who knows Maine riding well. Sessions are limited to 5 students in order to allow for high-quality instruction and safety.
