ACCOMPLICE Movie Premiere | September 5 & 6

Join us September 5 and 6 for a backyard premiere of the latest film from Teton Gravity Research: ACCOMPLICE. “It’s a moment time-stamped in our brains. Maybe it was a birthday gift. Or perhaps you saved paycheck after paycheck to finally purchase one. However you met your first bicycle, it was the pedal strokes that came afterward that hooked you onto something intangible. Adventure. Connection. Freedom. From the producers of UnReal and the director of Where The Trail Ends comes Accomplice, an homage to all the crazy adventures and crazier comrades that result from our finest sidekick. On the surface, Accomplice takes you to mind blowing locations across the globe with the world’s top riders. But beyond that, Teton Gravity Research’s latest film celebrates how the bicycle is more than just a mode of transportation – it’s a vehicle for the human spirit.” -TGR Tickets are $10 and can be…

Brodown Showdown Virtual Jam

The Brodown Showdown is going virtual for 2020! Our annual mountain-wide jump jam has been reimagined this year so that everyone can get rowdy from a safe distance. We want to see your best sessions from Tombstone, Sherwood, and the Slopestyle course, but this time….on the world wide web. Post your video submissions on Instagram using the event-specific submission hashtags and tag @highland_mtn. Submissions are open until the first weekend in September, giving you plenty of time to get dialed in. All videos must be fifteen seconds or shorter. (If they’re any longer, the goldfish we hired to do the judging won’t watch them.) Add #brodownshowdown2020 to spread the stoke. All submissions will be judged on overall impression, taking into account style, execution, trick completion, difficulty of trick, and video creativity. Our judges will award first, second, and third place titles in each event. Winners will be announced on Monday,…

Winter Woolly 2020 Recap

If we could control the Winter Woolly conditions every year, we would choose to repeat 2020 until the end of time. For once the weather was entirely on our side, with a week of wet snowfall followed by a deep freeze just in time for the event. Trails were firm, fast, and fresh. The morning of Winter Woolly itself started out cold, but temperatures warmed up comfortably throughout the day. With plenty of sunshine and no wind, you could avoid catching a significant chill even on the chairlift. Clif kicked off the day with a free breakfast bar that spotlighted their energy granola, and kept everyone in the backyard well-fed with the incomparable warm Clif bars. (A warm Clif bar by the fire at Highland on a perfect fat biking day? Sign all of us up.) In the evening, the pub filled up with everyone from Highland regulars to Northfield…
