    Comprehensive list of Lift Accessible MTB parks in North America

    I have been toying with the idea of taking a month and trying to ride all the lift accessible mountain bike parks in NA. Whether that happens or not, I could not find a comprehensive list anywhere, so I decided to make one.

    Please correct any errors, and update any Bike Parks I missed, and the correct locations they can be found.

    Thanks for the help. Here is the list so far:

    EDIT: I am going to list by region, and also with a star system. Whistler is ***** and everything else is based on that (doesn't mean there are not other 5-star resorts out there. It's an imperfect system, but its a start)

    EDIT2: also going to put lift ticket price and number of runs...bear with me.

    So, please put the STAR ranking of the resorts we have listed here, I will go with the consensus.

    I think you may need more than a month to do such a task. Maybe take a whole summer off to do it, especially if you plan on driving all of it.

    Pomerelle in Albion, Idaho, also Sundance in Provo, Ut. Grand Targee in Driggs, Idaho just across the border from Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I also believe that Bogus Basin in McCall, ID also runs their lifts. Rumor has it that Tamarack(?) outside Boise, ID has gone bankrupt.
    Yes, I want some cheezy poofs...!

    Some input/corrections:

    -Plattekill is in Roxbury, NY(Delaware Co.) not the town of Platekill, NY(Ulster Co.).
    -Jiminy Peak is $26.00 Day
    -Re-opened this summer: West Mountain in Queensbury, NY

    you mention 4800 feet for whistler? not for biking, its about 3300 for biking.
    i know this is a lift-assist thread, but there are so many great trails that are not in the park.
    i'm in whistler now and the valley(off park) has some great trails, not all beat to hell like the park!
