Summary:
WOW - downhill is the brown! Rent a downhill bike and get ready to exceed all your expectations. I loved the easy stunts of the Homeward Bound straightaway and the short black side-trails that were more technical but still low-risk. That first swoopy, rutted area really shows you what those bikes are made for - started just bunny hopping the rough stuff and confidence went up fast.

Love the stunt names and trails being posted.. like 'Mr. Toad's wild ride' and 'Thin Lizzy' so you could remember them as you talk on the lift. Bring gloves, knee pads, consider a full-face .. if you fall you are either going fast or on a steep pitch so you'll probably roll a bit.

Recommended Route:
Follow Homeward Bound and go ahead and check out the stunts rather than avoid them.. after a couple laps you'll be doing them all (though I never rode thin lizzy). Then just ride any trail skiiers left of the lift - they are all good. I found the blue's were great and the blacks went surprisingly well - but stayed off Fireswamp and the other double blacks. Love the serpentines like Bermy and the steep ones skiers right of the lifts .. and you can scout out the lines as you go.

Summary:
Haven't gone down this posted trail. I can say Fire swamp and the other DH kicks ass. there are many gnarly drop offs and hellish roots.. really rutted out at the top though, be careful for idiots who dont know what to do and screw up the trail. also try theh DH trail in Snowmass Aspen. its called Banzai, thats a sponsored course, so its much tougher

Recommended Route:
ride from top to bottom as fast as possible

Summary:
Deer valley is such a good ride for the whole day! I love the naildriver trail it is very fast. But I am really into DH so the only way to go is fireswamp. It is very technical thats probably why there are no sighns around leading you to it. Just follow the DH riders and have a blast!

Recommended Route:
For an all out fun fast ride take Naildriver or little more tech go twist and shout. For really tech fireswamp or thievs forest.

Summary:
I thought that I once knew how to ride a bike. then I rode twist and shout and then the DEVO. I learned quickly that there was much to learn but by the end of the day I had it down. now I can go any where and not be very challenged by things because it made me a way better rider. The only thing left for me is BC and all the stunts.

Recommended Route:
follow the road signs

Summary:
Even though it says the NCS Dh course(which is very fun and wicked to race on also) but Devo Downhill tests your skills and lets you know that you can ride a dh course on a hardtail and show up the 8" travel guys and have a blast doin it. I could beat some downhillers on this trail on my hardtail.

Recommended Route:
The new trail, #20 Devo Downhill!!! If I am a dual slalom rider on a hardtail, than anybody on a full suspension can do it. Be prepeared to crash

Other recommended trails in the same area:
#17 and #6 but week after ridin #20.
