Regular readers may remember that I visited the Big Bear, California area during my summer 2012 road trip, and that I wrote a detailed article on Snow Summit Mountain Resort.
Of all the ski resorts in the United States, Snow Summit has one of the most storied histories in downhill mountain biking lore, but also one of the most controversial. In my article from last summer, I detailed the controversial history surrounding Snow Summit’s rapid fall from one of the top downhill racing stops in the states to not allowing downhill mountain biking on their property at all.
Full disclosure: out of everywhere I have ridden my bike, Crested Butte tops the list as my all-time favorite location. I’ve ridden all over the United States, and while there are many places I still want to visit inside our nation’s borders as well as abroad, Crested Butte is currently my favorite place in the world.
