Sun Valley is home to all-time big mountain riding in the spectacular high country of the Sawtooth Mountains. On this trip, you'll rip endless miles of gorgeous high-alpine singletrack, with a world-class mountain town home base. 
Sun Valley, Idaho sits at the foot of the Sawtooth Mountains, one of the most scenic mountain ranges in the United States. The landscape and views alone are worth a visit to Sun Valley, but we tend to focus on the abundance of singletrack in the area. With over 400 miles of trails, all interconnected and close to town, it’s the perfect destination for this guided mountain bike trip package. In order to find the goods, we've partnered with the great Chasing Epic Mountain Bike Adventures to offer you the most and best riding possible.

Between Sun Valley and north to Galena Pass, you’ll find big mountain riding with huge views, long climbs, and long descents that will have you grinning from ear to ear. The topography lends itself to some amazing high-country riding, with long drainages, huge mountain ridges, and plenty of forests and flowers to keep things tip-top. To the west of town is the true backcountry experience, where we’ll show you epic descents with not a soul in sight. Partnering with local guides on this Sun Valley Mountain bike trip, you'll be shown these epic rides that would be tough to find on your own. Then we'll head south of town towards Hailey, where we'll ride some lower elevation rides, which are right up there with the best and offer some of the most fun 15-20 mile loops we’ve ridden anywhere.

    Welcome to Sun Valley! Chances are, you've never ridden at an elevation above 8,000 feet so we're going to help acclimatize those legs and lungs this afternoon with a ride off Galena Pass. Expect some of the flowiest trails around with views to make your friends jealous; later this evening, we'll head down to a group dinner and re-energize for the next three days of big rides. Ride: 15 miles, 2,000 feet climbing.

    This morning we'll hop into a shuttle to head north of town for an epic ride! The views from the mountain ridges north of town are truly epic, and the riding is there to match. We'll combine some of the locals' favorites that include huge descents, and finish the ride by cruising along the river right back into town. Today's ride will be about 24 miles with 3,500 feet of climbing, but with the shuttle we'll get almost 6,000 feet of descent!
  • 3
    Another shuttle this morning, but this time we're heading behind the ski area to get even further into the backcountry. Today's ride combines some of the more "out there" routes that you would never find on your own, which is why we only work with the best local guides! Expect a couple of huge descents which take us over 5 miles down the most beautiful creek drainage you've ever seen... ending with a soak in the hot springs and a cold post-ride beer! Ride: 20+ miles, 3,000 feet climbing.
  • 4
    We don't take it easy on the last day, which means we'll head south of town to do a big loop on the Greenhorn Imperial trail system. These trails might be relatively close to town, but you still get that backcountry feel when you top out above 8,000 feet and can't see another soul in sight. This is the perfect way to end the trip: 15 miles, 1,800 feet climbing.

We won't be focusing on the hardest trails but instead the best trails. There will be man-made bridges; some you will ride and others you might walk. The beauty of the trip is that you will get to ride with born and bred locals and most days you have the option to add on some trails.

  • When and how do I meet up with the group?
    Chasing Epic will send out an itinerary about a week prior to your arrival with more information on where and when to meet as a group on Day One. For our 4-day trips, we like to leave plenty of time for a good first-day ride, so plan on meeting around 1:00pm. If you need hotel recommendations for the night before, you can email Chasing Epic directly. For departure plans, expect to be finished with the trip by 2:00pm on the last day. We’ll still hammer out a good ride that day, so you’ll be tired!
  • I am gluten-free / vegetarian / halal/kosher… will there be food options available for me?
    For all dietary restrictions, please let Chasing Epic know prior to the trip and they will accommodate you. We also recommend that you bring snacks, especially for full-day rides.
  • Is there a maximum number of customers on each trip?

  • Is there a minimum age required for the trip?
    For liability reasons if you’re traveling alone, all customers must be at least 18 years old. If you’re coming on a trip with your parent or legal guardian, then you have to be 15 years old.
  • What kind of accommodations will we be staying in?
    We understand the need for clean, comfortable lodging after a long ride and we love the idea of community. Therefore, a majority of the time we’ll be staying in very nice condos or townhomes, with one designated as the central gathering place for meals, hanging out, and apres-activities. In some locations that’s not possible, so we’ll stay in spacious hotel rooms and will have a large community space for meals and post-ride activities.
  • Which meals are included?
    All breakfasts and dinners are included in your trip: from dinner on the first night to breakfast on the last day. We will either go out to dinner/breakfast as a group, or we will have the meal catered at the house or condo.

For our full day rides (typically days 2 & 3), we recommend packing in the calories with the energy bars, gels, and mixes. Please plan ahead if you want something other than a basic sandwich or wrap.
  • What kind of demo bikes are available? Is everyone guaranteed a bike?
    Yes, we have high-end demo bikes included with each one of our booked Chasing Epic trips. And not just any demo bikes: we carry some of the most fun, cutting-edge bikes on the market today. We have both 29″ and 27.5″ bikes along with mid-travel and long-travel; basically something to suit any type of rider, for any type of riding. All of our bikes have carbon frames and very high-level build groups. As you know, it’s hard to carry the exact quantity of sizes and models to fit every customer on every trip, so there will be limited availability accordingly. To guarantee you get the bike you want, be sure to book early and correspond with us immediately to reserve your bike.
  • I want to bring my own bike. Will I get a discount?
    We understand that some of our customers, want to ride their own bikes instead of our incredible demos. Not a problem! For customers not utilizing our demo fleet, we offer a small discount on the price of your trip: $150 off our 4-day trip price. To take advantage of this discount, please note at time of booking and Customer Care will add the discount to your order. Additionally, if you’re flying into the trip destination and need to ship your bike, let Chasing Epic know as soon as possible and they’ll help you with those logistics.
