Scheduled Course - Dawn Patrol Days

Dawn Patrol Days

The early bird gets the worm! There's nothing quite as satisfying as seeing the high peaks come to life one by one as the sun gradually illuminates the snow covered ridgelines, knowing you'll soon be riding down the pearly snow, in what may be mistaken as, just a dream. This morning meditation has become a life-giving ritual for some and for others a cold awakening never to be spoken of again. Either way, you'll have to find out for yourself!

Set your alarms and don't you dare hit snooze. The plan is to meet every other Wednesday at 6am – and be done by 9am Hammer out an early morning training session, ride the fresh goods and shoot the breeze alongside your local, friendly UMA Guides.
