Mountain Biking


We are the highest place that anyone can train and stay in Southern Africa with the resort lying at 3050m above sea level, and the trails for training gets up to 3322m above sea level.

AfriSki has remote trails, a cross country course, marathon distance routes, and… the only T- Bar lift in Africa with 5 fun downhill tracks.

There has been a lot of input from top riders around the country, like Tiaan Odendaal on the DH tracks and Armand du Toit on the XC & Enduro trails. Rueben Storbeck is Afriski's resident winter park designer and is currently heading up The Kapoko Park mountain bike trails. Rueben has developed exciting trails with breathtaking views.

XCO – We have a world class cross country track that has been accredited by UCI and we had our first XCO National champs in April 2014 with great success and an awesome course.

Marathon - We have various trails going from the resort towards the escarpment where you will see the most beautiful view ever overlooking the whole of Natal, other one going from the resort to the Katse Dam, you can do a good 60-80km of training everyday on various routes going different directions.

Downhill - We have 3 Downhill MTB tracks and we utilize our ski lift do get you up the mountain while you remain seated on your bike, dragging you behind your seatpost and it only takes 7 minutes to get up there with no damage to your bike, we run the lift every last weekend of the month in the summer.

Enduro – we have an awesome Enduro track of about 5km, it is very popular and an exciting new discipline to the world of mountain biking.

Our aim is to cater to the needs of athletes who wish to increase physical performance through training at high altitude and reaping the benefits thereof and to provide them with everything to make the training up here as enjoyable and beneficial as possible.
