All meals are included, guiding and your lift ticket at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.

Trail Time

We will send out survey's to each participant to make sure each rider is experienced to have an enjoyable time and have the most fun here in Crested Butte. Here is a list of skills that are required to ensure your safety and that you will be capable of the trails selected for this retreat:

Intermediate is a wide range, but if you are comfortable on terrain that you have to maneuver the bike, and able to get off the ground with the bike that is an intermediate. If you can get your front wheel up, pump, manual, brake effectively, get air and control the bike, then you will be fine signing up for this retreat.

Meet ASDT MTB Director & Lead guide

Julie Cornelius

Julie lives in Moab, UT and loves mountain biking, nutrition, traveling and being outdoors. She combines her passions by guiding mountain biking and working as a nutrition coach. She loves anything that gets her outdoors but can mostly be found on her mountain bike- shredding local trails, bike packing through the desert or traveling overseas to explore new areas with her bike. In the time that she has been riding bikes, she has seen many women join the sport and the outdoor communities. She is extremely passionate about helping women get into mountain biking and the outdoors. Her favorite rides are taking self proclaimed beginner mountain bikers on a challenging ride and seeing them overcome their fears. She is excited to be a part of the ASDT community and looks forward to helping more women get on bike, into the outdoors, and to also share her passion for nutrition and health.

What should I bring?

After signing up, you will be sent a detailed welcome packet that will have everything you need to know for a great weekend! Packing lists, weather updates, what to expect, and things we should know about you prior to coming to Moab.

How do I know what my riding level is?

Beginner has little to no mountain biking experience; the rider is not comfortable on blue level runs. Blues are steeper, require knowledge of braking, steering and bike handling. If a rider can’t pump, manual, brake without skidding, front wheel lift, corner quickly, or ride technical terrain, the rider is classified as a beginner.

Intermediate is a wide range, but you are comfortable on terrain where you have to maneuver the bike. If you’re able to get off the ground with the bike, consider yourself intermediate. This means getting your front wheel up, pumping, using manual, braking effectively, getting air, and controlling the bike.

Advanced is comfortable with everything listed above and likes to ride steep, loose, and gnarly trails.  

Is bike set up going to be reviewed?

You should already have your bike set up for you, however, if you have a question, we are happy to help!  

Are the coaches certified? 

Yes. Coaches are PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor) certified and are certified in First Aid.

What if there is something I am not comfortable with riding? 

Participation for everything is voluntary. Riders are NOT required to do anything that makes them uncomfortable or is above their skill level. If the coach feels the rider isn't experienced to be on the trail, the coach has the right for the safety of the rider to send them home. Each rider will fill out a survey prior to arrival to assess experience.

Should I bring tools?

If you have a multi-tool, spare tubes, and tire irons, please bring them. Coaches will have tools also.

Should I use flat pedals or clip ins?

Flat pedals are preferred if you have them.
