    Which park? Utah, Idaho, Wyoming?

    Got a car and a day to ride mid July in the middle of a moto trip. I love riding dh so want to get in a day on the mtb as well. If you had a choice which park should I go to? Utah bike park? or Jackson hole maybe?

    Been to whistler some but never heard much about any of the other parks. Are there any good ones? where would you go? Can ride so I dont want to waste time at a family friendly hill type wussy park. need a rental too

    thanks

    If you are in Utah you'd either want to go to Deer Valley or Canyons. Deer Valley will have your old school technical, rock garden type trails. Where Canyons will have your jump lines and flow trails. I wouldn't classify either resort as a destination resort and will pale in comparison to Whistler. However, while in Park City there are some other trails by empire pass that you can shuttle using the free bus system. Plus you can check out Road to Arcylon and Trailside bike park. Brian Head is a fun resort also, but if I were picking a resort to ride in Utah it would be Deer Valley.

    Jackson Hole bike park isn't all that great, but there are trails around Teton Pass that might be up your alley. The only downside is that you will need to shuttle those trails or hitch a ride. Maybe someone from the area would have better knowledge on the best way to ride those trails. Not my video, but the video shows some of the trails

    Yeah, Deer Valley or Canyons. But like Digital Soul said, nothing will compare to Whistler. Not even close. But still very fun. But the non-lift access areas around the resorts is incredibly good.
