Improve Your Mountain Biking Technique


We are very excited to announce that together with Ski Lodge Engelberg and Dario Küffer we are organising a mountain bike skills camp in Engelberg this summer. Engelberg is the perfect playground to enjoy some incredible single tracks but also to enhance your skills and become a better, stronger and a more comfortable mountain biker. We will offer two different camps, depending on the level of your mountain biking: Beginner and advanced.

Beginner Camps

The beginner camps focus mostly on improving your riding technique such as riding position, line choice and of course switch backs. The beginner camps are suitable for bikers who have picked up an interest in the world of mountain biking and are eager to experience more action on the trails. You should have previous experience from riding single tracks and want to improve your skills further.

9 -12 September


Advanced Camps

The advanced camps focus more on perfecting your riding technique in order for you to go faster, master those"endo" turns and perhaps get you ready for your next enduro race. If roots, rocks, drops and tight switchbacks are no match for you even in steep and exposed terrain, the advanced camp is something for you. Please check our skills assessment to get a better understanding of the different skill levels.

Dario Küffer - Swiss MTB Guide & Instructor

Dario is your lead instructor during these camps. He has more or less been mountain biking before he could even walk (slight exaggeration) and been riding and exploring the trails in central Switzerland ever since.

As a Swiss certified MTB instructor he currently lives in Luzern, where he runs a mountain bike guide/instructor company called Trudy Bike. Dario is born and raised in this part of the world and has been a guide for more than 8 years. He knows the central part of Switzerland inside and out. If there is any hidden trail worth riding, Dario will find it.
