    I thought that Squaw used to open its lifts to DHers back in the day. What happened?
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    I thought Squaw was recent, and doesn't Kirkwood do MTB DH lifts in the summer?

    Squaw Valley, has some nice fire roads - if that is what you are looking for....

    Kirkwood, lifts bikes too, but they lift to tame trails.

    No obsticles, no technicals...zzzzzzzzzz.

    Kirkwood is goin to be the only "local" option unless yer callin Mammoth local -
    Reno and Tahoe have some really fun and nasty trails but the key word is : lift serviced
    and i dont think we're goin to find too much of this round here .
    someone needs to step up and propose somthin . so many trail nazis and tree lovers up the hill that its really gonna be hard to sneak the "good" stuff past em .
    i tried at Sugar Bowl a couple years ago but was met with hostility and discrimination-
    I sense the FEAR... the fear of what you don't understand-
