    Idaho,Utah freeriding road trip suggestions, please

    Any must do's on this July road trip? Chairlift or pedaling ok. We like medium drops, jumps, wood, and singletrack. I was thinking Moab, Sun Valley area trails, Tamarack, Brianhead. Any other must do parks or trails? Thanks for your suggestions!

    I'd steer clear of Moab in July, unless you start your rides at 6:00am, and finish by 10:00am. Very hot. Don't forget to hit Deer Valley for lift assisted riding.

    I don't remember being allowed to have bikes (other than on paved paths & roads) inside Zion. Maybe I'm wrong.

    Plenty o places outside of Zion.........Gooseberry Mesa is a definate must ride......Brian Head is also one of my favorites.

    There's lots of stuff up in Wasatch Forest (N. Utah).

    I hear Silver Mountain Resort in Kellog, ID has trails and lift assist now.

    Anywhere in Utah in July that isn't above 7000 feet is going to be about 100 degrees. Don't go to Virgin in July.

    In Idaho I would hit SunValley, the Stanley, then McCall, then head North. For buffed trails go to SunValley. For an epic trail ride FisherCreek north of SunValley near Stanley. Then for freeride stuff hit Tamarack, they're just starting out, but they're cutting trails and building stunts every summer www.tamarackidaho.com. Then for lift served trails, no stunts though, hit Brundage ski resort near McCall. Then head North.
    In northern Idaho try Schweitzer and Silverking, but I'm not sure what kind of trails or stunts they have up there.

    If your talking CO then don't miss Silverton MT. Great riding, on and off resort, and the 20 feet of snow might be melted by then! All double black.

    It's about 4 hours. 2 to GJ and another 2, maybe more to Silverton. I'd move there if it wasn't so remote. Take some O2, the lift is 10,400 ft. to 12,300. It says on there site that Viagra help with altitude! hahah Light headed and horny!

    Yeah, I think a boner would get in the way of any serious hucking and jibbing.........Ha.....I wonder if somebody makes armor for that type of situation.

    Forget Utah in the summer, go to Canada and then hit Utah in the fall when you won't sweat your balls off, eh?
    That will be 60 buck, thanks.
