Utah Avalanche Center Snowbasin Resort Freeride Workshop January 26th – 28th 2014

The Utah Avalanche Center, Snowbasin Resort, and Amer Sports are pleased to announce the 2014 Snowbasin Freeride Workshop for competitive athletes, filmmakers, those with competitive or film production aspirations, and those who want to be more confident in exposed backcountry lines.

To ride big lines in uncontrolled terrain & live to ride another day you need to be smart.  In this workshop, accomplished pros will teach you what they have learned about:

·       Critical decision-making in high-stakes environments

·       Assessing snow stability and route viability

·       Active terrain management

·       Effective partner rescue

·       Situation management when things go wrong

·       Lessons learned the hard way

We will focus on big mountain freeride issues, addressing steep, complicated terrain, working with resort resources, assessing unfamiliar terrain, and balancing the desire to bag big dramatic lines with surviving to ride another day.  These principles apply whether you are trying to get a cover shot across the street from a resort, spending a day touring with friends, riding a storm day outside the resort, or dropping a 45 degree line in AK.

This will be presented in 2 days of combined classroom and on-snow practice by pro riders for pro riders, advanced skiers, and anyone who likes to use backcountry terrain aggressively.

Demo Mountain Bikes for Sale

The summer season has passed, the leaves are changing colors and Snowbasin Resort is gearing up for winter.  With that being said we are selling off some of our demo bikes from the summer.  Check out our list of well maintained top end bikes from Rocky Mountain below:

Rocky Mountain Flatline Park Bike

This is your chance to ride a Flatline from Rocky Mountain with a very impressive component list including SRAM X5 front and rear, and GPX Bottom Bracket. Built to be tough in every situation.

Sizes left: 1 Small, 1 Medium & 2 L Price $1500

Rocky Mountain Flatline Park Bike

Rocky Mountain Element 930

This 29” full suspension cross-country bike will guide you through the trails easily. Rocky Mountain based the Element 930 around the frame which is made of FORM 7005 series custom hydro formed alloy with ABC pivots, tapered head tube, and press fit bottom bracket. In order to make the rear end stiffer, they added 12x142mm rear dropouts. The RockShocx Monarch RT custom valved rear shock has rebound/ floodgate adjustments. The shock paired with the straight up geometry allow for maximum pedal efficiency while being plush enough to absorb bigger hits.

Sizes left:  2 L Price $1700

Rocky Mountain Slayer

Rocky Mountain Slayer

This is your all mountain trail destroyer. The Slayer scales steep climbs like a lightweight cross country bicycle. The Slayer’s static seat tube angle is 75° so as the suspension sags you end up in a powerful pedaling position, of approximately 73°. Your weight is in the center of your saddle and over your pedals, for efficient climbing. So, whether it’s pedaling hard up-hill, fast rides down-hill, or just some fun flat XC trail riding this is one bike that handles it all. A fun bike for any situation.

Sizes left: 1 Small 4 Medium & 1 XL Priced between $1500-$1700

Rocky Mountain Slayer

All bikes are sold at a first come first serve basis.
