The Trick Pit?
Our minds (and hearts) are set on helping create a safe yet exciting place for athletes to excel and improve their bag of tricks. The Trick Pit is being designed and developed to provide BMX riders, skateboarders, skiers, snowboarders and other extreme sports athletes with the resources necessary to acquire the education, skills, and confidence to throw their moves on things a little harder than foam.
We are striving to build and provide a top-notch and safe action sports training facility, which serves as a catalyst to make you much better at your sport! Meet the trickepreneurs who are behind The Trick Pit.
Tucked up in the high mountain valley, surrounded by the Grand Tetons, the Big Hole Mountain Range and the unbeatable Grand Targhee Resort, lays Teton Valley, ID. The area and great community that we have grown up in and become attached to.
Currently, the primary focus of The Trick Pit team is to find a good building to put our equipment. Once we have a building we can officially open to the public and start giving back to the community and surrounding areas by providing people with an incredible resource to come, hang out in a safe environment, practice their tricks in a safe manner, and connect with one another through their similar passions. Our requirements for a building as basic: cement floors, high ceilings and open areas and no smaller than 5,000 SF. If you know of any buildings that might serve as a great Trick Pit home PLEASE contact us and let us know about it – we really appreciate it!
Who Can Come to The Trick Pit?
ANYONE AND EVERYONE! No previous experience is required, only interest. If you are under the age of 18 you are going to want to bring your parents for the first time because we require everyone to fill out a liability form (and you need your parents signature if you are under 18). All people are welcome regardless of race, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or what kind of board you ride so we’re looking forward to seeing you at The Trick Pit!
