    Lift served riding in CO in September

    Trying to plan a trip in September, mostly XC but would like to do some lift served DH towards then end when we are tired. It seems every mountain stops spinning the lifts on September first.

    Is there any lift served riding between Fruita and Denver in mid to late September?

    Beaver Creek says it will be open 4 weekends in September.
    Looks like Vail will be open the first 2 weekends in September.

    Beaver Creek has a couple AM trails and a sketchy closed DH trail if you can find it.
    Vail has a few DH trails and is fun for a day. They actually did some work on the trails last summer and improved some sections and added some small stunts.

    Keystone and Winter Park both close on Sep. 1st.

    You need to come earlier man, we have short DH seasons in CO.

    Let's put it this way.... I complain all the time about not getting up to whistler ever season, but then i take a step back and realize how freaking ridiculously awesome keystone bike park is, and how close it is to where i live, and how lucky I am to be riding for them....

    Keystone is the bee's knees, ducks nuts, cat's meow. or simply gnartastic.
