Jans Summer Events and More 2015

Mountain recreation is our thing – has been for the last 30 years. Whether we are fishing a blue ribbon trout stream, hiking in the remote wilderness of the Uinta mountains, or riding some of the 400 miles of IMBA Gold-rated single track in Park City, we love to be outside. That’s why we plan a slew of free summer events for locals and visitors alike. We want you to get outside with us. Check out what we’ve got going on for summer 2015, and come enjoy some time in the mountains.

Mountain Biking with jans.com Mountain Biking Events

We love to ride mountain bikes; it’s as simple as that. If the trails are open, we’re riding! To help us share our passion for two wheels and dirt trails, we’ve been hosting group mountain bike rides and events for over 20 years.

JANS SUPER DEMO

We like to kick things off with a bang, and the summer mountain bike season is no different. We’ll be hosting our 2nd annual “SUPER DEMO” at Park City Mountain Resort on Saturday, June 20th, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Come put on a two-wheeled grin, and test the best from brands like Trek, SCOTT, Rocky Mountain, Specialized and SRAM. Club Ride will be on site, showing and selling their latest wares, in case you are looking for a new kit. Still need more? How about 50% off lift tickets for attending the demo from our friends at Park City Mountain Resort.

Where: Park City Mountain Resort, 1300 Lowell Avenue, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Saturday, June 20th, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

TEAM SUGAR TUESDAY NIGHT RIDES

Maybe you bought a new bike after the demo, maybe not. Either way, it’s time to ride. Join our friends at White Pine Touring every Tuesday for their Team Sugar Tuesday Night women’s-only mountain bike rides, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., every Tuesday in June, July, and August. Groups are broken down by ability level so everyone can enjoy their ride.

Where: White Pine Touring, 1790 Bonanza Drive, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Tuesdays, June – August, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

THURSDAY NIGHT RIDES

It’s much more fun when we all play together. With that spirit in mind, our friends at White Pine Touring have been hosting their Thursday Night Rides, a weekly coed group mountain bike ride, for years. Rides run every Thursday from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. in June, July, and August, and are broken down by ability level – just like the Team Sugar Rides on Tuesdays. Make sure you at least make it out for the last Thursday Night Ride of each month, when our partners at Red Bicycle Breadworks will be grilling FREE post-ride pizzas. There’ll also be plenty of frosty beverages available.

Where: White Pine Touring, 1790 Bonanza Drive, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Thursdays, June – August, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Road Biking with jans.com Road Biking Events

With 400 miles of IMBA Gold-rated single track in Park City, it’s easy to forget about all of the great road riding to be had. There’s just as much, and even more, smooth pavement as there is buff singletrack, so you can still get your road bike fix. Hill climbs, quiet mountain roads, easy cruises – you choose, and there is a road bike ride for you in Park City.

WEDNESDAY WOMEN’S ROAD RIDES

Each Wednesday at Jans, we host our Wednesday Women’s Road Ride. Talented ladies from our buying team, accounting, and more lead this hour-and-a-half ride around Park City. They make sure to keep it casual, fun, and friendly for locals and visitors alike. Rides leave Jans Park Avenue at 6:00 p.m. every Wednesday – June through August. Bring some water, a snack, and a smile for a fun road ride every Wednesday night.

Where: Jans, 1600 Park Avenue, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Wednesdays, June – August, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Fly Fishing with jans.com Fly Fishing Events

We’ve had a passion for fly fishing for as long as our doors at Jans have been open, and even before that. There is something special about the sound and solitude of the river, and the prospect that a fish might rise. Fly fishing is an art as much as it is a science, and like any scientific or artistic pursuit, it takes practice and patience.

MONDAY NIGHT CASTING CLINICS

We start at each week at Jans with our free Monday night casting clinics at the ponds at Deer Valley’s Snow Park. If fly fishing is an art, this is where you will learn your brush strokes. Jans’ fishing guides and buyers lead these clinics every Monday from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. starting on Memorial Day and ending on Labor Day. Come cast with us. We’ll help you find your rhythm before you head to the river.

Where: Snow Park Ponds, Deer Valley Resort
When: Mondays, Memorial Day – Labor Day, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.

MEN’S AND WOMEN’S FLY FISHING SCHOOLS

So you’ve got your cast feeling solid, or maybe you want more than just casting instruction; either way, we’ve got you covered. We offer two-day fly fishing schools for both men and women. Each session includes our Monday Night Casting Clinic plus a day on the river where we’ll talk entomology (bugs), water, casting, knots, and more. Men’s classes are every Monday and Tuesday in June. Women’s classes are every Monday and Tuesday in July. If the casting clinics help you learn your brush strokes, our Fly Fishing Schools help you paint your first full picture – hopefully with a big fat brown or rainbow trout in it!

Where: Jans, 1600 Park Avenue, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Mondays and Tuesdays in June (men) and July (women); 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 pm. on Monday and 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday

Trail Running with jans.com Trail Running Events

Don’t like to ride? Not into fishing? How about we go for a run? Like we said, we love to recreate and we’ll do it however we can. Trail running is a great way to get some exercise and see all the beauty that Park City Trails have to offer. We may not run like Forrest, but we enjoy our time on the trail just as much as the next person.

MONDAY NIGHT RUNS

It’s incredible the change one person can bring. Enter White Pine Touring Programs Director and Monday Night Run leader, Patrick Coffey. Patrick loves to run, whether it’s a 20+ mile crusher or just a quick loop with friends. Join Patrick at White Pine Touring every Monday from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., June through August, for a casual two-hour trail run. Locals and guests alike are welcome to join in this weekly adventure on the trails of Park City.

Where: White Pine Touring, 1790 Bonanza Drive, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Mondays, June – August, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

RUNNING DEMO DAY

Maybe you already run the trails of Park City like a boss, or maybe you would like to see what everyone has been talking about. Whatever end of the running spectrum you’re on, White Pine Touring’s Running Demo Day is a great way to find your next pair of shoes, mingle with our staff, and meet some new running partners. Try a new pair of kicks from Hoka, La Sportiva, Salomon, or Altra to see what works best for your feet and style. You can also join a group run, and get ready for a summer of adventure!

Where: White Pine Touring, 1790 Bonanza Drive, Park City, UT, 84060
When: Saturday, June 27th, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

As you can tell by now, we love to play in the mountains. Join us for an event when you are visiting the area, or hit them all if you’re a local. We’re ready to share the best of Park City with you, and are looking forward to seeing you on the trail, river, mountain – or in the store this summer!
