    Downhill lift service bike parks?

    Did a quick Google search and couldn't find much. The discussion of moving has come up and Asheville area is in consideration. How far is the nearest lift served bike park from there? Is snow shoe the closest?

    Beech is about 2hrs away not that exciting though compared to ss
    Sugar has 1 fun run and a horrible lift about the same distance....
    I hear rumors of one in Asheville area though

    Beech is getting better every year considering it's only few years old. Snowshoe is really good and Bryce Mtn is basically all machine built trails and good for a few days a year. Those 2 are about 6 hrs from Asheville.

    Like to here more of the rumors of a park in Ashevile?

    Lots of shuttle options in that area and some of the best singletrack nationwide.

    Cool good info. I'm all about the climbs don't get me wrong. Just like a good lift session o. The big bike once or twice a month. Mountain creek bike park has me spoiled. Beech sounds promising. This whole relocation thing is still just an idea at this point. Thanks for the feed back.

    Don't think you'll regret that move. If I could live anywhere in the southeast, that would be it. More single track than you'll be able to ride in 3 years. Snowshoe is the closest think to Mtn Creek but like I said Beech will continue to get better.
    I make the trek up there 3-4 times a year from south Florida. Love the areas surrounding Asheville. So much more outdoor stuff to do, that doesn't involve cycling also.

    Like said above, Beech is getting better and better. It's good for a couple of day trips each season, would get a little monotonous for a weekend. Snowshoe is long weekend (3-4 days) worthy, a couple times a year, IMO. That place is the tits.

    Also like mentioned, get a small crew together and out of Asheville, you can shuttle numerous trails that are just as rowdy (the "raw" version, opposed to the groomed with wooden stunt version) as you'll find at a bike park.
