    Maaybe something in the White Mountain Rec area. Other than that, Ester dome may be your best bet.

    Gravity Logic just finished a set of downhill trails on Birch Hill, on Fort Wainwright. The trail is still posted as closed, but I know some people who have already ridden the trail and say that it is quite good. The lift is supposed to be retro-fitted to carry bikes for next summer.

    I recently moved to Fairbanks and am looking for some people to ride with, mostly all mountain/DH. I have checked out both Birch Hill and Ester Dome, there must be more riding then this. Anyone willing to show me around? Thanks.

    No, my wife is doing a postdoc there and I am along for the ride, so to speak. We moved here from BC about a week ago.

    We have lots of x-country, but not a lot of dedicated all mountain/downhill. Birch Hill is the only area I know of.

    Birch Hill should be great for next year, I just hope that they stop using birch and popular for their wooden structures. It will not last. The two trails done by gravity logic are great, more of the same is needed.

    As for dedicated DH, there are a lot of options at Ester Dome, it has the grade, we just need to put in some work. Anyone for some fall trail building?
