While many ski towns and ski resorts are laying low, quietly waiting for another winter, plenty of others are turning the volume all the way up with all sorts of kickass music festivals this summer. These 10 are amongst the very best.

450 miles of singletrack await you just outside the door of Sun Valley’s Coyote yurt. Having the yurt as a base camp, rather than touring between yurts, makes this trip friendly for groups with a variety of skill levels; kids and the less intense bikers can take a day off or cruise the easy trails for a few hours while the fanatics can stay out all day. And with a guide to lead you, every mile can be tailored to your specific ability level and interests. The yurt itself features stunning views of Boulder and Pioneer Mountains, which are best enjoyed while sipping a cold beverage on the sundeck after a grueling day on the trail. -       $230 per person per day (includes guide, yurt rental, food and transport) -       Yurt Capacity: 12 -       See svtrek.com for more info
