Craggy Hills & High-Speed Thrills

Mountain biking in the Tetons.

For those familiar with Jackson Hole and the Tetons, it’s no secret that the area boasts exhilarating trails for mountain bikers of all skill levels. At Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR), there are seemingly endless opportunities to spin down miles of winding trails that flow, roll, bump, and jump through pine forests, wildflower fields, and rocky hills. And all the while, you can soak in sweeping views of mountains and the valley below.

Not into uphill? The downhill ride can begin without a grueling climb. In just five minutes each, the Sweetwater Gondola and Teewinot Chairlift whisk bikers to the top of 14 different downhill trails. From the beginner-friendly Sweet Timothy to expert-level trails like Deer Jump, JHMR’s bike trails give riders a chance to rip through berms over 30 feet wide and sail across tabletop jumps. Mountain-bike masters can even get a challenge on Dirty Harry, a World Cup–level downhill course that carves a steep and perilous path down Jackson Face.

For competitive types, JHMR’s weekly Sunday Funday event gives entrants a chance to win prizes and bragging rights. Using simple app-based tracking, riders can record their downhill vertical feet and laps, which are automatically placed on a live leaderboard. Two winners—one male and one female—score gear and vouchers for bike passes or ski rentals.

After the rush of competition, everyone can enjoy a relaxing Sunday evening with cocktails and live music at JHMR’s Concerts on the Commons, which feature a diverse sampling of musical talent from across the country.

There’s something for every biker at JHMR—and even for those who don’t have a bike at all. JH Sports offers a variety of professionally-tuned rental bikes, including top-of-the-line options from Norco and Scott, as well as any amount of protective gear, including full body armor. Several of JHMR’s trails are also accessible with electric and adaptive bikes.

All JHMR trails are rigorously maintained, and many are brand-new this season. Whatever one’s ability level, from green recruits to salty downhill veterans, a host of exciting trails await those who are ready to explore the mountain-bike scene in the Tetons.
