    Could use some trail advice in Southern Idaho

    I will be riding in SW ID in a couple days with the college buds. Having never really explored the area, we are looking to the locals to help guide us on some trails so we can skip the pase, junky, janky, and weak trails that plague all of our states.

    Here's our set-up: we will ride from near the 4th of July to the following weekend. Three dudes in total, all on six inch travel all mtn bikes. So to tour to a new spot each day is cool, but we would like a mix of gnarly, techy downhill and freeride AND some serious all-day epics in pristine backcountry.

    Any help you folks can throw our way would be much appreciated. Hell, we don't even know of good camp spots or hotsprings.

    Adam, it would be helpful if you gave a little more info.
    Where are you coming from?
    Do you have a current plan for base of operations? As in, are you staying in Boise, McCall, Marsing, other?
    Do you have transportation for yourself andf bikes? Extra vehicle for shuttles?

    Let us know asap and we can better serve your request for info.

    Ah yes, details. We are coming from the scorched wastelands to the south. UT and AZ. Three dudes, two soobs, three hard hittin but still epic-capable bikes. Coolers, beer, all that.
    We are going to focus on riding in the Ketchum area. The Sawtooths and moviestars are what we want to rip up.
    Is Sunvalley doing lift served biking? If it is, is it like Whistler or like a boost on vert for the morning? On the other foot, we'd love to do the classic all-day scenic flowy epics as well.
    Is Stanley a better spot to base out of?
    Thanks in advance, Adam

    SV and Stanley trails are exactly like what you saw in Roam. Flowy and fast and unless you ride up the lifts, you have to earn the turns... You'll be fine on AM rigs if that is what you ride in UT or AZ.
    Whenever I haul a$$ I have to take two trips.
