National Geographic named four Colorado towns to its list of the country’s best mountain biking spots this year, and with this fest, Winter Park is clearly angling to increase that number to five. The weekend includes instruction from pros such as Olympian Ann Trombley and five-time national mountain biking champion Alison Powers. Try the family-friendly ecological ride along the Fraser River Trail or learn some basics at the fest’s two skills camps. You can also skip riding altogether in favor of spectating: The stunts-heavy Colorado Freeride Festival is happening just up the road at the resort.
