Summer Adventure Days
Every summer TAS hosts outings throughout the summer that are open to people with all abilities. Outings include cycling, fishing, mountain biking, paddling, yoga and more. The Adventure Days schedule is released annually in May and the season ends in Mid-September. Here is 2018’s final schedule, please join us!
Let’s get summer started with our two favorite things: biking and grilling out! Meet us at our office in Teton Village where we will sharpen our skills with a bike obstacle course. Ride your own bike or try out one of ours. Socialize with other adaptive athletes, volunteers, staff, family and friends while we grill up a tasty lunch. Then let’s get cruising with a group ride on the bike paths along the village road.
