mountain biking

OLD: Beyond The Green

Features

This summer, think outside the tee box. Here are five places where you can keep your family happy-and get in your golf game, too.

Summer Resorts 2003: Winter Park, Colorado

Features

When biking boomed in the 1980s, locals looked at the vast network of logging roads that crisscross the Fraser Valley and saw the backbone of a premier trail system.

Big Biking: Breckenridge-Loveland Pass, Colo.

Features

Summer brings the mountains to life, and the best seat in the house is the one on your bike.

Summer Resorts 2001- Northern Rockies, Big Mountain, Mont.

Features

A Big Mountain summer covers so much territory it helps to survey it over a slice of fresh huckleberry pie from the Summit House on top of the ski area. Stellar views include the surrounding tumult of mountains and their wide array of horseback riding.

Big Biking: Evans Notch, Maine/N.H.

Features

Warm-weather funhogs know western Maine for its hiking and mountain biking. Northwest of Bethel, the Appalachian Trail crosses the Mahoosuc Mountains, a stretch hikers describe as the most grueling segment of the entire 2,000-mile route.

Summer Resorts 2001- Northeast, Sugarloaf, Maine

Features

Western Maine's lakes and mountains have been attracting "sports"-as locals used to call the summer rusticators from Boston and New York-since long before Sugarloaf's ski trails were cut.

Summer Resorts 2001- Southern Rockies, Winter Park, Colo.

Features

Visiting Winter Park only in the winter is like looking at the world with one eye closed: You're missing half the picture. Colorado's most laid-back major ski resort is even more homespun in summer. And that's how the locals like it.

Summer Resorts 2001- Northeast, Stowe, Vt.

Features

Take away the ski area, the shops, the splendid spas and restaurants of Stowe, and what's left would be a pleasure in itself. A quaint Vermont village to stroll, streams to picnic beside, mountains to hike and endless dirt roads to meander.

Summer Resorts 2001- Northeast, The Balsams, N.H.

Features

Tucked in a remote northern corner of New Hampshire's White Mountains, the Balsams is a throwback to the luxury and gentility of the family summer getaways of the Fifties.
