Ladies All-Ride Mountain Bike Camp

Grand Targhee Bike Clinic Liv Allride 1024x320 1

 

Grand Targhee Resort has spectacular single-track trails near the resort and miles of lift-access downhill trails winding through wildflower meadows with epic views in every direction. Established as the first downhill mountain bike destination in the Tetons, the Grand Targhee Bike Park offers downhill trails for newer to more advanced mountain bike riders; gentle, banked cruisers and exciting, rock-strewn downhill runs with teachable features all the way down.  During the summer months when the West is sweltering, Grand Targhee and the Tetons might just be the most extraordinary, cool-temperature riding in the lower 48!

This camp is hosted at Grand Targhee Resort where we will work on perfecting skills using large grassy areas, mountain bike specific skills zones, and some cross-country style trails nearby.

Camp Notes:

This is an “all-mountain” focused camp with chairlift access to the middle and top of the mountain. This camp is taught in the bike park using the chairlifts to access the trails. Climbing techniques will be covered and there are nearby cross-country trails to practice climbing technical features, but all groups will eventually use the chairlift to work on downhill bike handling skills.

The mid mountain trails are fairly smooth with lots of corners, some fun wall-rides and nothing too steep. The top of the mountain has some steeper sections, loose rocks and long, winding downhill trails that will have you grinning from ear to ear. Groups work their way down the mountain stopping when necessary to work through technical sections. More advanced groups might be introduced to larger drops (2ft+) and small jumps depending on skill level and goals. Also be mindful that the elevation at Grand Targhee Resort is 7,408ft at the base and 9,862 at the top.

*Note: If you are a very advanced rider who has specific goals like “bigger jumps and drops” we suggest taking a private lesson with one of our coaches at a location that caters to bigger jumps and drops. Email info@gritclinics.com for more info.

Also please note electronic pedal-assist bikes are NOT allowed on trails at Targhee.

Helmet Requirements

This camp will have lift-access riding for riders and full-face helmets are highly recommended if you are interested in more advanced skills in the bike park like higher speed downhill riding. If you bring a full-face with you, also bring your open-face helmet for morning skills and drills. We will have a limited number of full-face helmets to demo but please plan to bring your own, borrow one from a friend or rent one from the resort if  you would like to guarantee proper fit and use of a full-face helmet for the entire weekend. Downhill helmets are best paired with goggles so bring those too if possible.

To rent a full face helmet, please make sure to contact Habitat right away as they have a limited inventory. Call them at 208.354.7669.
