Beginner Skills Area


Located at the south end of the Happy Valley Adventure Park. The skills park offers a safe and stress-free environment for entry level mountain bikers to gain confidence before heading to the chairlift and entering the main bike park downhill trail network.

The Beginner Skills Park consists of three zones:

Light Green Zone: An introduction into mountain biking with three small features

Green Zone: Introduces the decision-making process while riding, with three features closer together

Dark Green Zone: Introduces the concept of riding up and over features while keeping your tires on the ground.
