    As the fastest-growing discipline of cycling, Enduro is all about skills, speed, and fun—it can be as laid back or competitive as each individual rider chooses to make it.

    Gould Enduro Mountain Bike campers will spend two days learning and training on Gould’s Pine Hill trail system, including our pump track, before spending the next two days at Mt Abram Bike Park. At Mt. Abram Bike Park riders will have the opportunity to utilize the lift service to rip miles of purpose-built gravity trails.

    As Enduro grows, more and more mountain bike trails are being designed with lines and features to thoroughly test a rider's complete skillset. At this camp, our USA Cycling certified coaches provide riders with the tools necessary to improve their skills and build confidence on the bike, which will lead to more enjoyable, safer, and more efficient riding.

    Fitness and endurance are required to safely and enjoyably participate in the sport. We ride multiple hours each day of camp, and our coaches address ways to build your fitness during rides.

    Full-face helmets and full-suspension mountain bikes are strongly recommended. A comprehensive Information Packet with a full list of recommended gear to bring will be emailed to all registrants 2 to 3 weeks before camp begins.

  • Gould Les Deux Alps Summer Ski Camp

    Boasting the world’s largest skiable glacier, Les Deux Alpes has 14 summer lifts, including chairlifts, gondolas, funicular, and mostly T-bars. 84 training lanes, a vibrant European youth training scene on the glacier, and a French resort town at the base make this both an athletic and a cultural experience.


    Ski Focus
    Fundamental skills and movement patterns are the foundation of high level skiing and fast racing. Summer camp offers the best opportunity to introduce, develop, and perfect skills and movements without the pressure of race season.

    Is your athlete ready?
    This is an active trip, best suited for athletes born in 2008-2010. Athletes should be ready to be physically challenged each day. We walk to the lifts, each athlete must be ready to carry their own gear on a daily basis. We will take a day off from skiing part way through the camp to promote muscle recovery. Previous experience sleeping away from home is helpful and a valid passport is a must. Athletes must also be prepared to meet
    COVID related entry requirements at the time of travel.
