    I'm in the same boat as you. Picking up a new (to me) big-travel bike tomorrow and will be looking for some more gravity-oriented riding. I haven't ridden them yet, but places to look into, that i'm aware of are:
    Black Rock (google black rock falls city oregon)
    Post Canyon - near Hood River
    Willamette Pass - lift access
    SkiBowl - lift access

    I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones i've heard of. There's also a downhill trail or two near Cline Butte, between Redmond and Sisters, but I don't know if it'd be worth traveling to, i think it's just the best thing for locals without them having to travel. If that makes sense.

    You have Ashland Just south of you, which offers some good DH, and I am sure there is some stuff around grants pass too. Oh then there is Jacksonville which looks pretty sweet. I'm not from down there but as far as I know your living in a good spot for biking in Oregon.
    There is a work day every sunday at jacksonville, it would be your best bet at meeting some other bikers and to find out where all the good rides are. here is the link.

    if you were only able to do alice in wonderland you seriously missed about 15 miles of awesomeness, and thats only the super d course. there are lots of trails in ashland once you are able to get to the top. Google the ashland spring thaw and go have a blast!

    go to the top of the ski lift look over the edge of the fire access road and dive in! all you have to do is head down hill and youll eventually end up in ashland. you cant miss it haha.
