    If you come to BC in july you can ride the grand opening of Cypress Mountain and ride whistler before and during crankworx. Also you can hit evrything else on the northshore for free if your on a budget!
    Just my 2 cents!
    where are you from?

    Ive heard great things about snowshoe. Mt. Snow is pretty good, anywhere in BC, and theres some great trails in the Pacific northwest. I would rather go to BC than SoCal.

    you could go over to the east, even though it would'tn be half as good as the b.c. whistler area, but you could stop at CPX in joliet on your way to Rays indoor freeride park, they're both really fun, but i would rather go to whistler, but if you've been to whistler and b.c. many times you could try somethin new.

    Snowshoe, WV is a kewl place, but for any of you that have lived or ridden out West, it will seem like a tiny sled riding park.

    It's a long trip from CO to WV just to be disappointed.

    You're better off staying out West.

    That's true, I probably should have mentioned that I love extreme hot weather. I'd move to some place that warm in a heart beat if I had the chance

    2nd Bootleg

    Can get cheap round trip packages, and enjoy the great nightlife if your old enough.
    Bootleg's runs are somewhat short but technical as hell. Check out the site www.bootlegcanyon.com snakeback is to Diva is ill.
    Will def. want to shuttle though the walk to the top is around 50 minutes, and ride about thirty on a heavy bike.


    Good luck,

    Ditto. From June through mid September its too hot be there past 9 am in the morning.

    Plus LOTS of rattlers out that time of year on that side of the valley.

    About a year ago on a local trail I came around this turn pretty hot, and about 20 feet in front of me I saw a rattler stretched out in the sun across the trail. I couldn't stop in time, so instead of plowing over it I bunny hopped it. My friend behind me said it was the coolest thing he had ever seen...
