Caution:  This is just a big fat huge plug for Northstar, and I'm not even getting paid...but if a Northstar person reads this, I except free lift tickets in return for an even better plug!

Northstar has some great mountain biking!!  You put your bike on the ski lift and then ride down the mountain.  The real people (very PC huh?) will skip the lift and just ride up.  Its a 2600 ft climb, I've done it on a unicycle so you can definitely do it on a bike!  There are usually two lifts open, but I encourage you to ride up from the second lift to the peak.  Its pretty steep at the end but its a cool view.  There is riding here for everyone, from easy fireroad to nasty single track.  Ticket prices were around $20 bucks this year, so its not too bad.  This ride is a must for all you serious riders!

The picture of me on the top of trail listing page was taken at Northstar.  Pictures.
