I live on the side of a mountain, well its not a "Mountain" but its a large hill with many downhill trails that are plenty long. So i basically do the majority of my riding on a mountain. That must be rough living 18 hours away from a good riding spot.

Yep me too. No snow in Tahoe yet so still riding alot of my DH stuff.
Lucky. Not that I'm protesting this awesome snow (been snowing all day here) and going snowboarding, but I haven't ridden my M3 since like September. I think it's secretly going to plot to kill me so that it can find someone else who rides it more. :(

Yeah, me and Sombrio live in the Peoria area. We ride Farmdale Reservoir. I live 5min drive or 15 min ride from it.

He lives in Peoria. Hehe.

Yeah, I can't imaging learning DH on Whistler or something. I could probably handle it. Nah, I'd die.


Oh well.

I live in North Vancouver where there's 3 mountains less than 30 minutes ride away. Then there's Whistler which is about 1 hour by car. Not too bad...

I agree with Sombrio again. I found that most of my backyard is PURE CLAY.

Now I have two gaps back there.

I Do I Do

Living here in the GREAT Pacific Northwest I have mountains right outside my door with some great shuttle dh trails as little as 20min away. And in any direction I look there is great riding within driving distance such as Post Canyon up the Gorge and Falls City, Willamette Pass and even Whistler is within driving distance...... That and the fact that we always have low elavation stuff that stays ridable all year.. and great big mountain snow for ski'ing and snow boarding not to mention SKI- BIKING
How perfect is that ?
