ABOUT

May 18th–20th
Start this season off right with a weekend dedicated to learning and fun. Develop essential mountain biking skills that will take your bike park experience to new heights.

The Women’s Gravity Weekend brings together a diverse group of enthusiastic women in a supportive riding environment. Whether you’re new to gravity mountain biking or have been riding for years, this program has something for you!

Morning instruction focuses on core fundamentals and balance. Break old habits and begin to ride with more control and confidence. Riders also have an opportunity to harness new skills related to jumping and taking drops on Highland’s dedicated learning features.  

Practice makes perfect…

The Women’s Gravity Weekend includes park passes and discount rentals for the entire weekend giving participants plenty of time to reinforce new techniques on the terrain of their choosing. Sunday instruction is available for an additional fee.

NEW! This year we have partnered with Driftwood Stables of Northfield, NH to provide a true “Retreat Style” lodging option for WGW participants. Located Just 5 miles from Highland, accommodations include finished Yurts with electricity, showers, warm meals, and access to the facility’s heated outdoor pool and spa!

Driftwood has two different size yurt options,  ones that sleep 8 and ones that sleep 6.  If you have requests for grouping within a yurt please send us an email to camps@highlandmountain.com.
