Anybody DH Mountain Bike?

Just wondering if anybody here mountain bikes (downhill, freeride)? If so where are the best places to ride (besides Whistler)?

Nothing finer than climbing for a couple of hours up switchbacks and barreling down the otherside at 50mph.

Nothing finer than barreling up the mountain at 50mph in my Taco, then barreling down as fast as possible on my DH rig.

I just bought a specialized hard rock last year and love it. All of our ski resorts no longer offer MBing in the summer. I just find my own mountain and make my own trails.

That's fun too but I would rather get my addreneline reward after the climbing than have to climb after the rush.

Oh I don't climb...I hardly pedal at all, LOL. Pedalling a 45lbs bike, with 9inches of suspension travel up a hill is near impossible.

Might as well get a motor for it too.
I like being 53 and still having a max heartrate over 200 while making those younger than me suffer a little.
