WOW - downhill is the brown! Rent a downhill bike and get ready to exceed all your expectations. I loved the easy stunts of the Homeward Bound straightaway and the short black side-trails that were more technical but still low-risk. That first swoopy, rutted area really shows you what those bikes are made for - started just bunny hopping the rough stuff and confidence went up fast.

Love the stunt names and trails being posted.. like 'Mr. Toad's wild ride' and 'Thin Lizzy' so you could remember them as you talk on the lift. Bring gloves, knee pads, consider a full-face .. if you fall you are either going fast or on a steep pitch so you'll probably roll a bit.

Customer Service

Follow Homeward Bound and go ahead and check out the stunts rather than avoid them.. after a couple laps you'll be doing them all (though I never rode thin lizzy). Then just ride any trail skiiers left of the lift - they are all good. I found the blue's were great and the blacks went surprisingly well - but stayed off Fireswamp and the other double blacks. Love the serpentines like Bermy and the steep ones skiers right of the lifts .. and you can scout out the lines as you go.

Haven't gone down this posted trail. I can say Fire swamp and the other DH kicks ass. there are many gnarly drop offs and hellish roots.. really rutted out at the top though, be careful for idiots who dont know what to do and screw up the trail. also try theh DH trail in Snowmass Aspen. its called Banzai, thats a sponsored course, so its much tougher

Very fun, but very difficult. A good place to learn how to deal with drop offs and braking ruts. Wear your safety equipment.

This trail is very fast and technical, big drop offs, well worth the drive to get there. You can ride it like five times in one day with the free buses also.

Excellent for anyone wanting to test out their full suspension bike or skill for that matter. A small fee buys you a lift pass and all the rides to the top you can handle. The mountain just about has it all. Wide, narrow, fast, technical, trees etc. etc..
It's also great if you think riding the tram is for wimps. Climbing to the top is a pretty good workout.

Customer Service

As many as you can get in during the day.

I have a season's pass here, and of course, I live about 10 minutes away. I bring two bikes, my freeride and my hardtail. You take a lift from about 8000 feet up to 10000 feet, so it's a good drop. The downhill course has a number of really technical trails, some of which require bike handling that a freeride type of bike can't do. On those trails, I use my hardtail. Other trails, you can point your bike basically downhill and get some good speed going. The only thing I hate about this place is the idiots who bring their Huffy's, etc. and realize that there are no beginner trails. You don't know how many times I've come around a corner, and there is a family group (and Mormon familes are huge) standing around and chatting. It ticks me off. Otherwise, it's great.

Customer Service

Try the Tour de Suds, especially if you have a good climbing bike. Freeriders will be challenged.

Sundance. It's not far away, slight less technical, but a better cardio workout.

There's a reason that this is a regular stop on the NCS tour year after year. Deer Valley is a beautiful place and the this is NOT the only trail they have. They actually have a lift up higher than the national course that gives access to a well-maintained system of about 30 trails. All for $7. Anyway, the NCS downhill is incredible. Not super fast, but lost of corners and drops, a couple kick 'em ups (jumps for those not in the know), and a rock garden that still gets me nervous even though I practically lived up there the month before nationals this year.

Customer Service

Pro/Expert Course but only if you're good enough:)

In Park City? Yeah right. In Salt Lake, look no further than Bonneville Shoreline for about 1.5 hours of singletrack.

I wanted to update my review of last year. First, the trail is beautiful still. The environment, aspens, pines, alpine meadows, is gorgeous.

The snow has now all melted (actually it's been quite dry here), and I've been on the trail three times over the past two weeks. It's still very technical, with a couple of uphill sections with lots of twisties. Those of you from the flatlands are going to be challenged because of the thin air and technical riding.

I have a new Merlin Echo, and I think it's the perfect bike for the trail. It handles the uphills, downhills and technical singletrack very well.

At any rate, I think a nice hardtail or one of the newer lighter full suspension bikes work best.

Although I am new to the mtbing community, words cannot explain how much fun riding at Deer Valley is. There are trails for all skill levels and they go from soft-soil rooty wooded areas to rocky streep switchbacks. If you live in this area Deer Valley is a must visit.

Customer Service

I didn't encounter a bad route.

Be sure to bring a lunch with you because you will not want to lose any time here.

Customer Service

I cannot recommend one route. They are all fantastic. My friends and I make it up there a few times a year. It is tradition. If you like fast, technical downhill in a beautiful setting, this is for you.
