Grand Targhee Resort Continues Investment in Their Bike Park
(Alta, WY – August 26, 2017) – Over the past five years Grand Targhee Resort has invested over $400,000 into their mountain bike park and related operations. This includes the addition of 11 miles of lift serviced downhill trials and over 10 miles of crosscountry trials. Grand Targhee Resort is dedicated to delivering a bike park that is geared toward all skill levels and abilities.
Grand Targhee Resort is proud to be the 2016 #2 Bike Park in the Northwest by the readers of MTBParks.com. This marks the 4th year in a row for the resort to be ranked in the top 5 parks of the Northwest.
As downhill biking and crosscountry mountain biking becomes more popular, Grand Targhee Resort is working to ensure their bike park and trail system can cater to all levels of bikers. The resort has been dedicated to building beginner and intermediate trails for families and entry level riders. The completion of the Greenhorn Trail system, in 2016 added 4 miles of beginner trails and 2 miles of intermediate trails. This trail system offers convenient access from the base area and is the perfect ride for families with young children or beginner riders. The trails build confidence as they wind through open meadows, aspen groves, and wildflower.
This summer Grand Targhee Resort continues to enhance their bike park experience by opening the Shoshone Chair lift and a beginner trail in the flow park. The resort has seen the need to expand their beginner terrain and offer a product that allows bikers who are new to the sport the trails needed to practice and build confidence. The addition of the Shoshone lift, brings a new beginner downhill trail and access to the intermediate flow trails – Chutes 7 Ladders and Otter Slide. The resort has also purchased new bike trays for both the Shoshone and Dreamcatcher lifts. The Shoshone lift and new Bring it on Home Trail opened for operations on Saturday, August 26, 2017. The lift will operate Fridays – Sundays through September 17, 2017 for bike haul ticket and bike park passholders.
Bike haul lift tickets are $40 for adults and $30 for juniors. If you decide to upgrade to a season pass, your park lift ticket will be credited to the purchase of your bike park pass. Bike park season passes come with great perks: 10% off Grand Targhee Bike School sessions, 5% off food and beverage, 20% off summer lodging, 10% off Teton Mountain Outfitters purchases, and 5% off the purchase of a new bike.
Now through closing day the resort is offering 20% off lodging, but if you book closing weekend, you’ll receive an additional 10% off lodging.
