As every traveler can tell you, the best way to see a place is with a local.
As Jackson Hole locals can tell you, the best way to see Jackson Hole is to get outside.
From October 8-12, during the 2014 SHIFT Festival, visitors will have an opportunity to do both.
“Whether it’s a mountain bike ride on the trails of Snow King, fishing on Flat Creek or a run on the trail systems around town, our Outside SHIFT program allows guides, locals and participants to ‘network’ while immersed in the natural splendor of Jackson Hole,” says SHIFT Director Christian Beckwith.
The program, which may be found on here, provides links to guide services for rock climbs, fishing trips, and wildlife safaris, among other outings. Providers are offering special discounts for SHIFT participants during the festival dates.
Even yogis can get in on the action, with discounted pricing at the Valley’s best yoga studio.
Free excursions are also part of the mix: local non-profits will be hosting guided walks, runs and biking excursions for festival participants throughout the week.
“Our world-class trails, rivers and mountains make Jackson Hole a bucket-list kind of place,” says Beckwith. “What better way to see them than with a local?”
