    Some ski hills have downhill courses. Boyne in Northern Michigan and Cannonsburg in Grand Rapids Michigan come to mind. Horn's Hill near Newark, Ohio has a few DH trails.

    Looks like Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort in Galena offers mountain biking of some type. No idea if it is DH on their ski runs or XC type trails.

    like they already stated and then you got the big places like 7 Springs in PA aand Snowshoe in WV. I'm from ohio and there's Horn's Hill aaaand Mohican DH which aren't that big, but eh.

    7 Springs big? ok so i have never been there but according to Sicklines.com they only have 450 vert, not somthing i would call big. but w/ taht said the video and pics i hae seen of that place make it looks just freaking sick.

    other places:
    Spirit Mtn - Duluth
    Red Wing- MN
    Farmdale- Peoria
    Chadwick- MO
    Devils Den- AR
    Marquette- MI
    many other places in Michigan
    if you reall want somthing fun go to Windrock in TN


    PS: do not waste your money at Chestnut
