The Jackson Hole Downhill
Satisfy your need for speed in Jackson Hole’s annual downhill ski and snowboard race.
Hosted by Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club (JHSC) since 1982, The Jackson Hole Downhill is one of the few open, non-sanctioned community downhill races.
Every year ski and snowboarding enthusiasts gather to race in this exhilarating competition. With three viewing spots, spectators can choose their preferred location to marvel at the skilled skiers and snowboarders as they race downhill during the community and pro events.
When & Where:
The Jackson Hole Downhill will be held from Friday, March 10, 2023 - Sunday, March 12, 2023 at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Competitors and spectators can access the race venue by taking the Sweetwater Gondola to South Pass Traverse to Teton Lift for the Crags-to-Moran racecourse. On the edge of Grand Teton National Park, this multi-day event is surrounded by beautiful landscapes.
Where to Stay:
Book a stay at the Town Square Inns hotels to enjoy free shuttle service to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort throughout the event. With convenient access to shops and restaurants in downtown Jackson Hole and each hotel offering a wide range of amenities, Town Square Inns has options to meet every guest's style and budget.
IKON Pass and Mountain Collective pass holders may reserve a ticket in advance. Racers without an IKON Pass or Mountain Collective pass can go to the ticket office the day of the event for 30% off daily tickets and multi-day passes.
Skiers and snowboarders ages 12 and up, as well as current and former World Cup racers, are invited to compete in up to three of the six categories. All competitors are racing down the mountain in an attempt to achieve the fastest completion time.
The Jackson Hole Downhill concludes with an exhilarating, high-stakes Pro Race. On Sunday spectators are invited to watch as the teams race through the course. Each five-person team is led by a “Champion” who carefully selects every member of the team.
