AfterJam X Ride Camps
Mark it in your diary!... AfterJam take over the 2 Alpes glacier this July for 1 week of pure heaven.
Picture riding the prestigious 2 Alpes freestyle park all morning alongside heaps of pro riders who are there to offer inside tips and know-how to guide you to your park goals. Sunny summer park laps, music playing, atmosphere on point, competitions for those ready to test their new skills, racks of test skis and snowboards to try.
You will be invited to an exclusive park feature build with the shapers crew of 2 Alpes, plus daily après organised, in fact daily events are written into the programme, designed with you at heart.
On top of this, you don't have to do a thing except raise your hand to join the party! - Afterjam and their teams organise the whole trip including your accommodation, a 6 day full glacier lift pass, plus 6 day full bike park lift pass. Visit www.afterjamcollective.com for more details and follow their social channels for regular updates.
Afternoon Mountain Bike Lessons
After a full morning of all that, Ride Camps takes over your afternoon to maintain the hype!
Every afternoon, you can join fellow AfterJam crew in a group mountain bike lesson, designed to introduce you to downhill biking through the bike park of 2 Alpes.
These lessons will run 3pm - 6pm and offered to the AfterJam party for €35 p/p.
Ideal for those who are comfortable riding a bike and would like to experience downhill mountain biking in an alpine resort. We will teach you all about your posture and body positions, your essential bike handling skills, how to corner the berms and complete your first descents through the bike park.
All the green and blue runs of 2 Alpes offer optional side hits, giving you the opportunity to tackle small jumps and drop offs and provide perfect photo backdrops! When you journey down from the glacier into the lower summer resort of 2 Alpes, you'll see the pistes lined with bike trails, the chairlifts carrying bikes, with riders in tees and shorts and all their protective gear.
The resort offers a full line up of difficulty from first time descent green runs, to expert blacks and unmarked trails - just like our winter piste grading. There are 2 skills areas that mimic the types of features you'll find on your descents, with the same difficulty grading. This allows you to practice all handling and body management before setting off downhill, or trying new features you'll find en route.
Craig will take you through these progressions to complete your first bike park descents, get more awesome snaps with your AfterJam buddies and achieve even more out of your week in L2A!
You can for sure repeat as many of these sessions as you like, each time becoming a little more fluid and confident in your bike handling. You'll notice you start to crank the speed of the downhills and gain more confidence to hit a few more features on the descent to add up your air time.
To book these sessions, please contact us with your AfterJam booking confirmation number and we'll get back to you with availability.
Once you are booked onto a AJ X Ride Camps afternoon lesson, we'll help to organise your necessary bike rental which will include your full body protection and helmet.
Reserving as early as possible is key to securing the best rates and availability of bike hire.
