    Where to downhill/Freeride?

    OK, my wife and I are coming to Alaska this summer to visit her uncle and I need to know where to ride? They live in Chugiak and I know nothing about Alaska, so if anyone can let me know where the best places to DH/Freeride are I'd appreciate it.

    Plus, I'll need to know where to rent a bike since I have no plans to ship mine.

    Thanks

    Yeah, what is the word???

    I spent a week in Whistler last summer, and I can't believe we don't have ground broken on something like that up here. They tried a few years ago, but had some trouble getting off the ground I think. (Japanese owners might not have been the biggest downhillers.) Alyeska has potential for some incredible stuff. As far as in town dude coming in this summer, it's hike a bike if you want some real downhill. Dome, Wolverine Peak, Near Point, Peak 2/3, ball park. Don't tell anyone I told you that, no riding on a few of those.

    i hear ya... i have been asking myself the same thing for years... we have almost the same type of mountain terrain that Whistler/Black Comb has, but... it's puzzling... but your right, it's hike it and bike it... don't forget about shuttle runs. even hilltop would be a fun place to setup and ride... Whistler/Black Comb is a mtb meca...
