7 Hours Daily

Grom Camp has your children covered for week-long programs all summer long. From beginner Bike Park riders through advanced groms, we have crafted a 5-day program to help your child take their riding to the next level. Our approach to Grom Camp is simple – Stay Safe, Have Fun, and SHRED!
Daily flow will include warm up time, coaching, lunch with team, and freeride/re-ride time. We will also incorporate a few afternoons out of the saddle to keep the stoke high and the legs fresh. Examples of off-bike time are SUPing, Capture the Flag, Bike Maintenance Clinics, and Zip Lining.
Minimum Requirement: Bicycles must have 20” diameter wheels or larger, a front suspension fork, knobby tires, front and rear handbrakes, and protective equipment including full-face helmet, knee pads, sunglasses or goggles, and gloves.

A beginner rider has never ridden in a downhill mountain bike park. They will have little to no experience riding a mountain bike on dirt roads or gravel bike paths. Most, if not all, of their riding experience will be on city streets and paved bike paths using a road or urban bike. This rider will have average balance and control on a bike and they can use the hand brakes.
A novice rider will have limited to no experience in a downhill mountain bike park. This rider will be able to ride comfortably at slower speeds on green flow trails and has some experience riding green and easy blue cross country trails. Their balance and control on a bike is good they and can use the hand brakes.
An intermediate rider has some bike park experience on green and easy blue trails. They are comfortable on a mountain bike and technical blue cross country trails with roots, loose rocks and tight single track. This rider will have no experience with jumping or drops but can ride, balance, change gears and brake autonomously.
A strong intermediate rider is comfortable on all green and blue trails in the Telluride/Mountain Village area. They can comfortably ride wide flowing blue trails with rollers and easy jumps. This rider is working towards improving jump, drop and cornering skills to handle the harder trails and flow better. They can ride, balance, change gears and brake without thinking about it at higher speeds and on steeper terrain.
An expert rider is comfortable and proficient on all Black technical and flow trails including all jump and drop options. They are working on gaining experience on double black and pro line trails.
