Summer Camp Mountain Bike Program

Grab your helmet, water bottle, and bike, and join us for another summer of shredding dirt on Targhee’s legendary single-track trails!  We’re excited to offer Mountain Biking 3 days a week, coached by Grand Targhee’s skilled and enthusiastic instructors.  The program is designed for both new and experienced riders alike and will focus on safety, fundamental skills and progression, trail stewardship, fun and adventure.  Little ones new to the sport will love the adventure of trail riding while more experienced riders will enjoy taking it to the next level!

Campers will be grouped by ability so that instruction is differentiated to better meet their needs. We will offer a Level 1 and a Level 2 ride each day with appropriate skill progression presented relative to experience.
