New! Day Camp at Centre Vorlage!


New for 2024 ! Summer bike camps at Centre Vorlage, coming soon.

Center Vorlage, the best mountain where you can learn to mountain bike in the Ottawa-Gatineau region in Wakefield, is super excited to introduce you to our too-cool day camps for summer 2024!

Imagine days full of fun and learning, with a funky bilingual twist. We’ve whipped up a crazy program: one half-day in French, the other in English, so everyone can ride and speak in both languages like pros.

On the week’s menu: learn mountain bike tricks, explore the forest, swim at Lac Philippe, conquer the Lusk caves, paddle board down the river, create crazy artworks, enjoy the VIP chalet, take advantage of the specially adapted chairlift to discover the mountain’s trails, become the king of bike mechanics 101, and much more!

We’ve planned everything to make life easier for parents: daycare for fearless little ones, a quiet corner so parents can work remotely, and even a catering service to satisfy hungry appetites.
Our crazy PMBIA-trained instructors, armed with first-aid superpowers, will watch over your little riders. We want every day to be a perfect mix of adventure, safety and hair-raising memories.

Join us at Centre Vorlage this summer for memorable adventures, laughter and moments that will last a lifetime. We look forward to a summer of fun and mountain biking!

We’re thrilled to share our exciting action plan for upgrading our mountain bike trails, creating an unforgettable experience for all fans of this wonderful sport. In 2024, our team is committed to transforming our existing trails and making your experience even more thrilling!

Highlights of our Action Plan:

  • Rehabilitation of Existing Trails:
    • We’ll revitalize every turn, every jump, to ensure maximum fluidity and unparalleled thrills. Qualified professionals will work to improve trail conditions and safety.


  • Déchainé Trail – A Renewed Experience:
    • The popular Déchainé Trail will be the crown jewel of our improvements. We’ll be making adjustments to maximize downhill enjoyment while preserving the natural environment.


  • Installation of Bike Adapters on the Blue Chairlift:
    • To facilitate access for mountain bike enthusiasts, we will be installing bike adapters on our blue chairlift. Chairlift = more downhill.


  • New Progression Area:
    • Introducing a dedicated area for beginners and intermediate enthusiasts with green and blue trails. Progression modules for jumps and drops will be added to hone your skills.


  • Easy Climb and Complete Cross-Country Circuit:
    • For those who prefer to climb the peaks, we’ll build an easier climb while creating a complete cross-country circuit. Venture into the heights at your own pace.

We understand that the safety of our users is a top priority. Rest assured that our employees have taken first-aid and 102 bike mechanics courses to ensure a safe and rewarding experience.

What’s more, our terrain is covered by an excellent cellular network infrastructure, ensuring smooth communication at all times. To further enhance safety, bike patrollers are on site to respond quickly to any need.

Should the need arise, rest easy knowing that Wakefield Hospital is in the immediate vicinity, ensuring rapid access to medical care should the need arise.

The safety and well-being of all cyclists is of paramount concern to us, and we do everything in our power to ensure safe and exciting adventures at Centre Vorlage.

Enjoy the comfort of our main chalet for a bit of remote work. Electrical outlets and WiFi access are available free of charge. Sit back, relax and connect, while enjoying the picturesque surroundings. That way, you can be the first on the trails, or take a lunchtime ride!

At Centre Vorlage, we want every participant to have the opportunity to experience mountain biking in the best possible conditions. That’s why we offer bike rental services, complete with all the necessary protective equipment.
