Attention all hikers, runners, outdoor enthusiasts! Recreating in Teton Village just got a little bit sweeter. Our ever-growing trail system in conjunction with Teton Village Sports is inviting you out to enjoy some time in Mother Nature. That’s right, the Trail Starts Here Challenge has returned. Hike or run in Teton Village this summer from June 15th – September 1st, log your miles via Strava and get entered to win raffle prizes or even a Grand Pass for Winter 19/20 at JHMR. There are a few small rules or general guidelines to participate in the challenge, but the main goal is to bring our trails to life here at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. With temperatures increasing daily and more of our trail system becoming accessible this is a great opportunity to enjoy moments among nature in our backyard.

Got a favorite ski run? I bet it could be your favorite running or hiking trail too! Perhaps you’re looking to get more information about trail conditions or need a pair of trail shoes? Two birds, one stone at Teton Village Sports. Looking for a running group or partner? We’ve got those too, as this summer we’ll offer our first group trail runs on Saturday mornings at 9 am. Need something to train for or trying to climb the big one? Check out the Rendezvous Mountain Hill Climb in August.
Perhaps the best part about running or hiking in Teton Village is that one can enjoy so many different variations of the trail system. Ride the Aerial Tram and enjoy an entirely different system of trails in the Alpine running all the way to Marion Lake or to Granite Canyon in Grand Teton National Park. Take the Bridger Gondola and run the new Casper Ridge Loop overlooking GTNP, or link up the upper mountain trail system via the beautiful Cirque Trail. Ride Teewinot as a foot passenger and the list of opportunities is endless! The trails are at your disposal and they are anxiously awaiting your arrival. Remember to always be prepared. Water, proper footwear and clothing, maps, and bear spray are recommended.
We’ll see you on the trails! Feel free to reach out to Teton Village Sports with questions regarding the promotion.
