Retallack caters to intermediate to expert riders who are in good physical condition. You don’t need to be an expert rider, however, our terrain and trails are not for the meek and inexperienced. You should consider yourself an intermediate mountain biker and be proficient with tight corners and steep hills. If you ride on trails more than two times per week and have previously ridden a lift-accessed bike park or trail marked as intermediate to advanced you will be fine. Our guides take it upon themselves to inform you of what to expect on each upcoming section of trail and will offer you coaching and instruction on the best way to negotiate challenging sections. Some sections may be more difficult, but your guide will warn you beforehand.
We will not be asking you to point yourself down super steep, rugged, loose and plunging trails, but some of our trails vary towards the advanced. However, all our trails are well designed, and don’t feature any mandatory drops or bridges. The trails we ride are very diverse, but we try to offer our guests as consistent trail quality and difficulty as possible. We find that riding less difficult trails is actually more fun!
