    What is your favorite lift park(besides Whistler or Trestle)?

    Trying to figure out what my next bike park visit will be.

    Went to Grand Targhee last weekend. Loved it.

    Just looking for suggestions. Especially ones with small lines.

    Thanks.

    Angel Fire. Trestles only advantage to me is proximity.

    Dont limit yourself to one park if you are prepared to travel.

    NZ has fantastic riding within a short travel distance of each other.
    Rotorua redwoods. Sensational loamy forrest
    Wairoa gorge is awesome you like tech enduro riding.
    Queenstown bike park and sorrounding trails. Corrotown is one of my favourite rides of all time!

    About 8 years ago now i did a couple weeks in the french alps. A different bike park every day. It was like a semi guided tour. That was the stuff of legends. It can only be better now.

    New Zealand is #1 on bucket list to MTB and hike. Alps are probably second. Its going to have to wait atleast a year though.

    Just added Whitefish to the list. I havent been to Montana yet. I just moved out west.
    Targhee has been one of my favorites so far.

    I've only been to about 4 different parks. But of those I really liked Whiteface. Happened to be closest to where I live also. To bad they've closed it to mtb this year. It was an extremely challenging mountain. To give you and idea of the challenge, doing more than seven full runs (off the gondola) in one day was a lot, and rarely done by most people I ran into. The guys who had the contract to run the place were great - had a real "mom and pop" type feel. Wow, do I miss that place. And right across the road was a great swimming hole with cliff jumps and waterfalls. My son and I spent a lot of time there.

    I remember having fun at Deer Valley, although I only spent a couple of hours there as I was passing through on my way to Colorado.

    Deer Valley is my home park. Pretty big park with lots of trails. Also has some pretty heavy breaking bumps on some trails right now. Good park though.
    Sundance i went to first time yesterday. Good park for a family that really has never done lift service before. Mostly Green and light blue trails.

    Sun Peaks is on the list if I head to BC. The BC list of rides is really long. I really want to ride the North Shore.

    I need to get to Revy very soon for Fifty Six Twenty. Will be going for sure in August. Maybe more for the non-DH crowd though, and not much else there in terms of lift assisted access.
