    DH parks within 3 hours of Boise?

    Can we get a thread going that lists some DH parks? I'm a recent transplant from CO, and I'm trying to plan some weekend trips. If you've been to a park, can you leave some info? Thanks in advance.

    park name?
    hours from Boise?
    is a DH bike necessary, or trail bike suffice?
    camping nearby?

    Wow, no replies?! Here's my list-
    Brundage Mtn has lift served trails in the summer. They've been doing it for a long time and try to freshen up the trails, but overall they're not cutting edge. Still fun. Trail bike is fine. 2.5 hr Drive
    Tamarack will have lift service this year. Newer trails, but they're a bit overgrown and need some work. A trail bike is fine, but there are a few spots where a Dh would be nice. 2.0 hr Drive
    Jug Mtn Ranch runs shuttles instead of a lift. The trails are new and the emphasis is on flow. Super fun for All Mtn/trail bikes. A DH isn't necessary. 2.0 hr Drive.
    Not sure what Bogus Basins status is, but I know they're expanding the summer riding.
    I'm pretty sure that's it within 3 hours.
    Sun Valley is bit further than 3 hours and if you really want to use your DH bike, then have to head Park City or north to Silver Mountain. Silver has probably the best and biggest park in the state.
