Snow Biking at Grand Targhee Resort

Winter biking is rapidly gaining traction and riders in the Greater Teton Region are a major part of the movement. Grand Targhee Resort recognized this, and became the first ski resort in the United States to embrace and endorse fat bikes onto its nordic trail system.

Building upon momentum from the 2012 event, Grand Targhee celebrates its second Fat Bike Race. With divisions ranging from 15k (1 lap on the nordic track) to 45k (3 laps on the nordic track). Snow bike demos will be available before and after the race.
