dude you can ride at all the ski resorts, go freeride the foothills if you live in the plains, the ski resorts would be best, whitefish, big sky, snowbowl, teton pass ski resort theres a bunch of places to freeride and i bet some resorts have bike trails/parks mine does.

be carefull
ski resorts allready know about us we have been beating on their doors since the mid 90s
most ski resorts allready have a mountainboarder clause in their statements

here in colorado we have been allowed at certain resorts to ride their hills others are still highly restricted
some require brakes and others wont let you ride the lift its all depending on the specific resort

i know here one resort has one of the nations biggest and best bike parks but we where banned from there and all intrawest ski resort (ranging from colorado to the east coast to west coast and into canada) due to some riders riding in the mud days before one of their biggest events

what im saying is keep it safe and dont ruin it for the rest of us
actually go talk to some one and make sure its cool

with all the new kids showing up and thinking they are allowed to ride anything anytime .. we are being banned from more and more sick spots by that day

- keep this sport cool and chill ask dont poach

agreed, I can't ride the ski resorts by me (I've asked) and there are laws against mnt.boarding in national parks and forests, I guess some states are stricter than others on the enforcement though. Ohio is one that enforces it.

I mean you can physicly ride them. I know that ski resorts in montana let you ride mountain bike trails on the slopes etc lift access or not. whenever i ski a ski resort i poach every closed area i can that's skiable (JHAF).

Anyway when i said every ski resort i was referring to MONTANA, chances are if they allow mountain bikers and hikers theyre going to allow mountain boarders. Ive biked in yellowstone into montana and riden in whitefish never stopped to ask if they allowed mountain boards but i think they do.

Chances are if they allow MtBikes and hikers they may not allow you
we have the same type of thing here and most other states do to
they are responsible for the land and what happens on it and they dont have to let you do anything

you gap looks good, keep that landing very rounded off in case you land a bit short. always take into account the dirt conditions to make sure you have the speed to gap it. muddy dirt can make for a not fun landing. sick table btw! and sorry to hear about the board, ive been there all too many times.

the first photo is looking back at the 2 jumps i have built (i have more stuff covering tops of pallets) [color="Yellow"]2nd [/color]is looking up the main run in. 3rd is at the top of the main run in looking at this kinda flat spot before the main run in. i wanna build a drop in off of that half finished tree house. but there isnt to much room for jumps i may just poach into the neighbors forrest. 4th is looking down from the alternate route which has a little jump that you land in the useless berm and then you hit the first small gap then the big step down. the last photo is after the last jump im kind of invisioning some rollers to a spine transfer we'll see though. oh and the big beast on the side is what i haul all of my dirt with, and a small glimpse of the dig hole haha. hope you guys can give a fellow builder some ideas....:D
