    Lift serviced riding in western NC?

    I live in the Triad area, and I'm looking for places to ride with ski lift service within day trip range. I know Sugar Mountain is one option. How about Beech or Hawksnest? Are there any others? And how do they rate comparatively? I'd prefer technical singletrack to wide open grassy slope schussing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Many areas in my neck of the woods, but none offer the lift you requested. Some of the best trails in the US are right here, but unfortunately you only have 2 choices: 1) commute using 2 vehicles to get to the top, 2) get up the old fashioned way, pedal.

    Pisgah Forest, DuPont Forest, Bent Creek, N. Mills River, Turkey Pen. All of these areas are superb.

    I know it's long for a day trip but Snowshoe, West Va. has a van shuttle system that's good. Plus they have lots of single track. I've never been (I truly enjoy climbing) but have a friend in Hickory that does it on a regular basis and can't say enough about it. I'm going to break down and go in June. Info should be on their website.

    On another note, where's a good place to ride in Greensboro? I've a friend in Durham and we want to meet in the middle and ride. I've done Hobby Park & Salem Lake (are those trails open?) but Gnsb is more in the middle.

    Thanks!
