Old school plank man...............but with the shape of my knees, this might be the year to get on the board. A-Basin is sweet for sure, and local knowledge should provide some wicked B/C goodness. We'll be in Colo in late Jan. for Beaver Creek with Amy's accountant geek friends.

let me know when we are hitting the dirt....I got one of those things too! I prefer the MX, but trails would probably be fun too!

<---yet to try any "real" trail riding...mx is too much fun...

and for those looking for an out of state adventure, I plan on hitting Lake Tahoe somtime mid February.

That's the only thing that has kept me from getting a dirtbike....figured I would ride one day and my back would spasm up and I wouldn't be able to walk for a couple of weeks!

yep, it will. that is brutal if ur puttin the hammer down !!!

i used to use trail riding in the national forest as another cross-training tool for endurance roadracing. id go out in the middle of summer in the hottest part of the day and go ride 50-60 miles non-stop. made that 1hr 20min long stint on the 954 seem like nuthin

$5 each visit or $25 for a 1 year pass. i used to buy the annual pass because id hit it up ALOT ! it was well worth the measly price tag of $25.

i'm goin snowboarding in december, but it'll be in california.

as for the trail ride...anything with 2 wheels and knobbies, or street tires with a rider with big , is more than welcome to come.

i've been a pavement guy during my 2wheel career, so this is new to me.
