Best Seasonal Insurance

Using chairlifts for mountain bike riding

Editors' Picks

There is nothing easy about the ski industry. Praying for snow takes on a whole new significance when your entire yearly income depends on a favorable weather forecast. And, let's face it, global warming has made things a whole lot more, well, unpredictable. So, what's a ski area to do? Turn those lifts on in the summer and shuttle mountain bikers, hikers and sightseers to the top of the hill. Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area has intermittent service, while Brundage Mountain Resort has embraced the trend wholeheartedly. Some resorts have even invested in major mountain bike park infrastructure to help fill the income gap. We say, why the hell not? We like flying downhill any way we can, be it on snow or single track.
