Snow Country's Best Mountain Resort Bike Parks:Throughout the summer, many ski areas turn their resorts, hills and chair lifts into bike parks, offering up miles of downhill riding for all levels of mountain bikers.These bike parks create long, steep, bumpy rides found on the typical trail in most mountain biking parks.Riders can scream straight downhill, like an alpine racer, while negotiating twists and turns, rocks and stumps on the way.For the more mellow bikers, parks cut long, slow-swinging novice runs, similar to the green runs of the winter.Some of the parks recommended by Snow Country include:Angel Fire, Crested Butte , Winter Park , Whistler, Northstar, Deer ValleyandSunday River .
