    no place has it because they use the lifts for ski season.....closest place would probably be Bootleg Canyon with shuttle service...maybe in the future a lift

    vailocity (Eric Carter's project in vail lake) will probably be open year round with shuttles given socal weather. too bad it's hotter n crap out there in the summer, but that's what mammoth is for.

    Also rumors of a potential lift if the park really takes off, but that's a long shot.

    If they did open up a lift at Vail Lake, they'd definitely have me there 10 days a month!

    yeah definitely. sure, it's an hour from me, but it's still closer than big bear or mammoth. Might give me a reason to invest in a full DH rig too.

    Vail lake is going to be SICK. I was there today working on the DH trail for the upcoming race. I'm telling you that the place is going to be awesome! A DH bike park in So Cal! YEAH!
