Mammoth Lakes, California
Ride: Mammoth Bike Park
Standout feature: Off the Top trail, which enjoys panoramic views of the mountains and lakes below
Stay
The Mammoth Lakes Basin, enveloped by the Inyo National Forest, is home to a family of crystal clear lakes including the famous Mono Lake. The namesake of this Eastern Sierra town, Mammoth Mountain, is aptly titled for the vast area of terrain which—when it’s not being skied on in the winter—offers cross country cruisers, steep downhills, a lift-serviced discovery trail for beginners, and an iconic pipeline. Stay in one of the many condos available in the centrally located Village, Juniper Springs Lodge, and more.

Standout feature: Banana Peel Pro Line Trail, a controlled-access section with amazing technical features for experienced riders
Stay
Winter Park is a quintessential mountain town in Colorado, just 45 minutes from Denver, that brings life to the saying “come for the winter and stay for the summer”. Warm months bring a lush green landscape and a complex trail system easily accessed by the large family homes in the upscale Rendezvous community in which you will be staying. Trestle Bike Park, just a 5 minute drive from the homes, is a well-designed yet demanding park not for the faint of heart, if you’re looking for a challenge.
