    Best summer mtb dh vacation destinations

    I have 3 days in early June to take off. Can anyone recommend a good mtb resort or destination? I would like to get out of the heat so that takes Moab off the list. Whistler is a bit far for only having 3 days off. I wouldn't mind a downhill resort so I can ride all day. Perhaps Parkcity or Keystone, CO, or Northstar? I have been to Whistler twice, is there any place that compares?

    Does anyone else have any trips planned for the summer?

    Colorado. Winter Park, Keystone, and Sol Vista can all be done over the three days.

    Angel Fire NM

    Angel Fire is close and easy on the budget.

    Another angel fire vote plenty to keep you busy for more than three days IMO but a bit further than CO.

    I went to Brianhead Ut about 12 years ago. I had just bought my first full susp bike, except it was still a XC bike. I still had fun, just didnt get the full effect.

    There's so many awesome options..

    Sunrise is close and gnarly (4hrs)
    Pajarito I hear is the hidden gem...will know more this weekend (8hrs)
    Angle Fire is awesome and building a ton (10hrs)
    Mammoth is always king of the mountain (8hrs+)
    Telluride has a free Bike Park (8hrs)
    Tahoe is my paradise (14hrs)
    Colorado has 4 parks with in an hour and a half of each other. Vail, Winter Park, Sol Vista, Keystone and the free Frisco Bike Park (14hrs)
    Park City Has Deer Valley and the much improved Canyons and the Trailside bike park (10hrs)

    Decisions, decisions for those that want to venture out a bit.
    We're doing Angle Fire June 29-July 1 and the Mammoth July 5-8...

    I think Winter Park and Colorado area stuff is going to be closest to Whistler. But I'm pretty sure nothing compares yet...
