I recently showed my dad the side of mt. biking that he thought was just riding off of rocks and riding at break-neck speeds (which we do). And he ended up renting a kona stinky from our local resort ( Silver Mtn) and railed with us (he is actually a really good rider.) He agreed that a trip to canada or any other big resort to ride smoother and more varied terrain would be sweet . so i am asking what is the best riding closest to our north idaho home( Coeur D' Alene? he said that canada is a total possibility and that about 6 to 8 hours is about as far as we could go drive time so whats the best riding aposed to our local FR/DH spots( Silver, Mt. Spokane, Beacon, Schweitzer)?
