Winter Park and everyplace else I have looked into has no lifts running during the week after labor day, although Keystone went to mid Sept.
Trying to climb at altitude in my current crappy condition won't be much fun.
Thanks anyways!
Hopefully I'll get back out there next summer for a more MTB specific trip.
Telluride should work out well, there's shops and stuff right off the gondola to keep the wife occupied for a coupla hours near as I can tell.

Had the fortune of skiing there a long while ago (~1991). Incredible skiing, scenery, and the town is ultra-cool. Skiing the back bowls is surreal.

Todd you beat me to it. I also suggest checking out Winter Park. It is also one of the major resorts closer to Denver.

To-hell-u-ride is a great place if you have a $4mil trust fund. Awesome scenery there, be sure to check out the waterfalls at the far end of town. I would love to ski there some time.

Colorado has so many great trails. Check out the Fruita/Grand Junction area. If you go to CB you could also try riding at Hartman's Rocks in Gunnison. The Black Canyon is a great natural wonder to the west of Gunnison.

No Goal, Wide Right, I'll just go ride my bike

There are way too many to name, but people often overlook Winter Park!

So many trails (many lift) to choose from. The town celebrates mtn biking!

You will have to report back. Telluride is the one place that I have been trying to get to, it is just off the beaten path from everything else out there. Such a cool town with a ton of history!!

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
