Kelly Canyon Ski Resort welcomes fat biking, snowshoeing, and nordic cross country enthusiasts to its expanding trail system known as the SHRED TRAILS! The Shred Trails are currently 12 miles of groomed uphill-downhill terrain including beautiful forest seclusion and spectacular vistas that can be accessed starting at the lodge or by riding Lift 4 to the top of the mountain. Bike racks will haul your fat bike to the top if snow conditions are adequate to accommodate a trail base that is firm enough for fat bikes. It usually takes a couple of weeks after opening before bike trails are firm enough to ride. Please inquire at the ticket office for information regarding lift-accessed bike trails.

Kelly Canyon charges a facility fee of $10 per person per day (ages 12 and under are free if accompanied by a paying adult) for a biking/snowshoeing/XC nordic pass entitling the holder to park in the private parking areas owned by the Resort, use of the lodge facilities, and access to the trails within the permit area of the Resort. The only legal parking and lodge facilities in the vicinity are located on private land owned by the Resort. Using Lift 4 requires the purchase of a regular lift ticket for full-day or half-day use. Single lift ride tickets may be purchased for $10 each.
Kelly Canyon also has Fat Boy bikes made by Specialized that rent for $16 per hour, $30 for a half day, and $42 for a full day. Or bring your own fat-tire bike (tires must be at least 3.7 inches wide).
Additional trails are planned for future winter and summer seasons. So stay tuned!
Have a great time as you "SHRED THE CANYON".
At the opening of the winter season, Kelly Canyon Ski Resort is providing parking on Resort private property at no charge at the far west end of the lower parking lot to biking, hiking, cross country skiing, and snowshoe recreationists who only want to access the national forest on the road between the Resort and the Y Junction, and who will not be using any other Resort facilities or trails. The Forest Service does not allow pets on the road between the resort and the Y Junction or within the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area. The Resort does not allow pets in the parking areas or the private property of the Resort or anywhere within the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area. Parking is at your own risk. The recreationists must cooperatively comply with the policies in the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area and on Resort private property. No trailers, oversized vehicles, or motorized recreational vehicles are allowed in the parking area or anywhere else within the Resort Special Use Permit Ski Area. The parking and access to national forest are cooperative efforts between the Resort, Jefferson County, and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.
