Jackson Hole Downhill

March 10-12, 2023; Jackson Hole Mountain Resort

The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club (JHSC) has been hosting one of the few (if not the last!) open, non-sanctioned community downhill races since 1982. In 2020 the JHSC, in collaboration with Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, redesigned the entire event to be a high-powered, high-caliber event celebrating the sport and community of alpine racing in Jackson Hole and beyond. 

The FCExcavation Jackson Hole Downhill is hosted on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s Crags-to-Moran racecourse off Teton Lift. The course runs just outside the boundary of Grand Teton National Park and boasts epic views. The Downhill hosts skiers and snowboarders ages 12 and up as well as current and former World Cup racers. Competitors can compete in up to three of the following categories: Pro, Am, Junior, Snowboard, Telemark, and “Fat & Baggy,” where a racer’s clothes must flap in the wind and their skis must be at least 86mm underfoot.
