OverviewThe Western Slope can have different geographical dimensions depending who you ask, but generally it refers to the western side of the Rockies in Colorado, draining to the Pacific. Mountain biking stretches old, old roots here, as locales like Crested Butte, Durango, and Fruita have rich histories of riding.
The character of the land takes on many forms as peaks over 14,000 ft. dwindle down westward through different geologies and ecosystems to desert river canyons. The mountain biking is as varied as anywhere on the planet.
