Drop Off & Pick Up

One family member is allowed at drop off and pick up with the rider.  Both rider and parent/guardian will be required to wear a face mask/covering during drop off.  Location for drop off will be at Two Creeks in Snowmass Village.  


Temperature Checks: All coach and rider body temperatures will be checked upon arrival each day with a touchless forehead thermometer. Any individual who has a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will be prohibited from attending and instructed to leave immediately. 


Illness Symptoms If any riders exhibit any symptoms at home prior to camp, they must not attend camp. All staff and riders with suspected exposures, such as ill household contacts, will be sent home with a recommendation to get tested immediately and adhere to requirements for quarantine. Full refunds will be given for any symptom-related cancellations PRIOR to attending camp. If a rider displays any symptoms including cough, fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or above, chills, body aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat or nausea, parents will be contacted and required to pick up immediately. Children will be isolated with the supervision of one staff member until they are picked up. The aforementioned applies to the coaching staff as well. In the event that any individual has any of these symptoms, parents of all riders will be notified. 


Social Distancing: We will attempt to accommodate required physical distancing of 6 feet as much as possible during mountain bike camp. Siblings or riders from the same family will not be required to socially distance. 


Face Masks/Coverings: Proper face masks or face coverings will be required of all riders and coaches when indoors and six feet of social distancing is not attainable, excluding snack and lunch time. Face coverings will not be provided for campers. 


If any rider, or staff member tests positive for COVID-19 after participating in programs, Roaring Fork Cycling & the Aspen Skiing Company will be notified by Pitkin County Health and Human Services. 


Bikes/Gear Bikes must be in good shape and riding condition. Gears must be shifting properly. Brakes must be working appropriately. Tires should have good tread and be able to hold air pressure. Grips should be secure, not overly worn and ends of the bars plugged. No kickstands are allowed on bikes. 


We recommend having bikes checked over thoroughly by a mechanic at a local shop prior to attending the camp. If you have any questions about the quality or state of your athlete’s bike, feel free to contact us. 

  • Helmets must fit properly, be in good condition and free of any major impacts. 
  • Glasses must be clean and free of major scratches/scuffs that impair vision. 
  • Gloves must fit properly and be bike specific/appropriate. 
  • Shoes must be closed toed and well fitted. 
  • Knee and elbow pads are recommended. 


Food Campers must bring their own nut free snacks and lunch from home. Cycling can be high exertion. We recommend packing additional food so that your athlete can make it through the day feeling strong and on top of their game. Please minimize the size of containers so that food fits easily in a trail pack. 


Hydration A hydration backpack (Camelback or any other brand) can really help with the trail experience and allow your athlete to keep up with their fluid intake. Consider packing an additional bottle for a calorie/electrolyte drink such as Gatorade or Skratch. This is not required, but can be a great treat for the trail. 


Clothing / Protection Cycling specific clothing can make all the difference. A chamois, jersey, cycling shoes, etc., can really help an athlete feel better on the bike. We recommend a breathable, moisture wicking t-shirt, durable shorts and closed toed shoes at minimum. For cooler days, a warm layer will help when riding skills and drills or during any down time. ****All athletes are highly encouraged to carry a rain jacket – even on the clearest, sunniest days, we can be struck by a surprise afternoon rain burst. It is important to be prepared.*** 


Electronics / Toys / Games / Cell Phones Mountain Bike Camp is a bike riding camp/program. If athletes choose to carry a phone, we expect that the phone is used just as that and has a minimal presence during the day. (Phones to be used as cameras are fine.) Cameras are appropriate, but are the sole responsibility of the athlete. We accept no responsibility or liability for your athletes phones or devices. Should a phone or other device become a distraction or nuisance, we will relieve the athlete of the device and return it to the parent/guardian at the end of the day. 


Inclement Weather Colorado is blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year.  Mountain Bike Camp is an outdoor based program. We will continue to be outdoors in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. In the event that severe weather prevents the program from continuing outside, we will relocate to the safest shelter. Alternative activities will include; maintenance sessions, yoga, indoor games, mountain biking films, and biking-themed crafts. As soon as the weather is conducive/safe to return outside, the program will return to biking! 


Late Drop Off / Pick Up We are aware that things can happen. Should you be late to drop off your athlete to the program, we will make every attempt to accommodate you in catching your athlete up to the program. There will be no drop-offs/pick-ups mid-ride. Should your athlete need to be picked up early, it will need to be arranged with the coach at the start of the day. Special pick-ups will not be allowed to have an effect on the integrity or schedule of the program. Late Drop Offs and Early Pickups will be accommodated at the next, most appropriate transition time. 


Refund Policy The last day to make changes or cancel Mountain Bike Camp is by 5:00PM on the Thursday prior to the start of camp. No refunds or transfers will be given inside of this time frame. All cancellations due to COVID-19 related sickness or symptoms will be given a full refund of unused days. If at any time Roaring Fork Cycling Inc. & the Aspen Skiing Company deems the risk of running programs to be too great to both participants and employees, we will cancel programs and offer full refunds for unused days. 


Waivers All Campers must have a “Release Form & Emergency Information” form and “Snowmass Bike Park Waiver” completed prior to the first day of Camp. Please visit and login in to access and submit these.
