    New question here. Mtn Biking Areas - Lift access recommendations???

    Hello,

    I am taking a road trip with a few buddies. They are not experienced bikers but I wanted to stop at a ski resort and do some lift access rides. I like to ride the technical blacks but they will not be up for anything harder than a blue.

    We will be driving from Denver to Jackson to Yellowstone to Missoula to Glacier National Park then back home.

    Anyone have any recommendations for good lift accessed trails for my buddies that I could shoot off on a hard one here and there?

    Thanks,

    John

    Thanks for the info on Silver Mountain. Does anyone know how that would compare to Jackson Hole's mtn biking?

    Keep in mind, the best situation would be an area that has blacks right next to greens and blues so we can ride somewhat together.... if possible.

    try big sky

    I would recommend tamarack if you were driving closer to Boise, but I have heard good things about Big Sky even though I have not hit it yet...

    Big Sky is great, but I don't think it's what you're looking for. Your options for riding at Big Sky are 2:
    1) blacks and double blacks
    2) greens (cat track/fire road)
    They're not that near to each other. If you come back w/o beginners, or you're OK w/ riding the fire roads with them, then Big Sky is awesome. There's just not much 'middle ground' at Big Sky from a trail perspective.
