Our knowledgeable instructor was concise and thorough in all instructions, verbal as well as demonstrating it. For a total beginner at this sport I appreciated the logical build up of concept upon concept to get us to the point of climbing and descending our first trails – more or less successfully. I feel I’ve gained a lot of basic understanding (with a tad of confidence!) in just a few hours. Now, it’ll be about practising and applying these concepts 🙂 Great intro course!
