Location: Whistler, BC, Canada
Company: Alpine Riding Inc.
In the spring of 2018 Alpine Riding launched in North America, designating Whistler as our home base and headquarters. Last season Alpine Riding ran guided tours in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park on the A-Rides (aka “mountain scooters”) and we are doing it again this year. We were the first non-conventional mountain bike allowed in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
The A-Ride is a safe and innovative way to introduce beginners to mountain biking. It’s a product which can convert A-Riders into mountain bikers by using the A-Ride to safely teach key mountain biking skills while building confidence. By standing in an upright position on the A-Ride, this allows for more stability and an increased range of sight for the rider. Furthermore, each guided tour offers riders education about Whistler’s history and the surrounding views.
Be a part of the Alpine Riding team, help spread the stoke to resort guests from around the world and help people learn #anotherwaytoride.
