    Any Oregon Downhill Resorts

    Greetings,
    Just moved here from Colorado and was wondering if Oregon has any downhill biking resorts? I did a quick search but didn't find anything.

    Not really resorts, but you can ride at Skibowl or Willamette Pass.

    But then again, we've got you waaaaay beat on fine microbrews

    Well, I not sure about the microbrews with New Belgium and Odell from my home town...

    Well I don't care about the "resort" part. Are lifts and downhill trails?

    Is Willamette Pass closed? Don't see any open trails on their website.

    New Belgium = laughter in these parts.

    Sorry, can't answer your questions. I've never been to either one.

    But welcome to our fine neck of the woods.

    You can push or ride up to the top of Blackrock or you can shuttle Post Canyon. No "real" lift served MTBing in these parts. Ski bowl kind of fits the bill but is most underwhelming. BR and Post Canyon are WELL WORTH the effort.

    Not sure if Willamette is open this year, I went a few times last year. Its nice because they have a gondola in the summer you just hop inside with your bike. Nothing special about the trails. steep moon dust.
