Jackson Hole Mountain Bike Park launches June 18

Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 2, 2011 11:04 am

Last summer Jackson Hole Mountain Resort gathered a slue of top-notch trail builders working along with the masterminds at Gravity Logic who are the world’s premiere trail sculptors, to build a new kind of Bike Park. Take a look at their construction video below.

Now all the hard work is completed and with the support of The North Face, Jackson Hole is opening The Jackson Hole Mountain Bike Park on June 18. It’ll be open for the season until September 5 from 9AM-6PM, and 9AM-5PM on the weekends in September. It is adjacent to Grand Teton National Park where the pine and aspen forests are lush and wondrous. Guests may also access the Park via the Teewinot high-speed quad lift.

The building team smoothed out trail beds and buffed the rocky terrain so either the most advanced or beginning bikers can feel challenged and comfortable. “We wanted to build a playground for riders at every stage of the game. We have a lot of experience riding powder in the winter, so we wanted to create a similar mountain bike experience that was effortless and fluid,” said The Park and Pipe Supervisor, Ranyon D’Arge. “On most of the beginner and intermediate trails you hardly need to pedal or brake, you just flow. It’s the ultimate downhill ride.

So get your gear and get ready to be there when it opens this June 18! Experience the Park now and then on July 9 come and celebrate mountain biking in Teton Village at the ‘Free for All’ Bike Launch Party sponsored by Red Bull.
