Wheels – Mountain Biking, BMX & Skateboarding

The Wheels program track focuses on skill development and competency in mountain biking, skateboarding, BMX and mountain boarding.

Ever since man invented the wheel, he opened up a whole new world of moving about the earth. At the Summit, use the latest developments in bike and skateboard technology to elevate the use of the wheel to an art form.

Get up close and personal with the awesome natural setting of the Summit at Low and High Gears on flowy, grin-inducing singletrack. Hey, there’s climbing too, but that’s all part of the experience. It’s no hike in the woods, but that’s not why you signed up right?

The Trax, a buffed-earth playground of speed, flow and flight, is THE place for BMX. Whether beginner or seasoned pro, spending quality time at The Trax will help you build confidence and you’ll be ripping in no time.

Trade in two wheels for four at The Park skateboard paradise and take your skate experience as far as you want. Hone your chops on railings, steps and ramps. Or carve up the bowls and enjoy the sweet feeling of flow.

The Program

This is a seven-day/six night program running Sunday to Saturday. It consists of one day each at our mountain biking trails, skate park and BMX tracks. These activities will focus on improving your skills and level of enjoyment of these action sports.

As a bonus, each member of your crew will also be able to select three additional elective activities at other Summit adventure venues. A half-day service project and a ride on the Big Zip – our 3⁄4 mile zip line – round out your week.

Each night (Monday-Friday), we will open the Scott Summit Center for activities, fun and socializing. The Scout Summit Center incorporates small versions of our adventure sports venues.
