Tline and Canaan Valley both allow mountain biking and run their lifts for riders. Mountain biking at Tline used to be great, now is marginal - thanks to limited trail maintenance and extensive trail damage from horses and 2 annual ATV races. Haven't ridden the ski area part of Canaan Valley yet - though the mountain biking across 32 in the main park area is sweet.

Snowshoe is the place in Mid-Atlantic for lift-served mountain biking. They cater to it, and have invested a good amount of dollars in developing trails - DH, free-ride, and XC. They also have a number of summer biking programs, instruction, rentals, and races/events.

Diablo Freeride park is located at Mountain Creek Ski area in Vernon NJ. This place is also supposed to be awesome - right up there with Snowshoe.

Wisp offers lift-served, and has recently started investing more in developing summer mountain biking - I recall they opened a free-ride park last season.

Whitetail used to - doesn't any more.

I believe Seven Springs has decent lift-served mountain biking.

Several others do too, but Snowshoe and Diablo set the bar way high for everyone else.

7S does have lift service for MTBs. Last season it was mostly XC and not much down hill stuff maybe 2-3 trails. I heard they are building more trails this season but haven't been up to check.
