Hi, im 19 and im a freshman at a cmmunity college by me. I live in s/e michigan and ride at alpine valley. I've only been to brighton once and i thought it was tiny. I went to boyne once and i liked the powder but the pipe had either tiny rails or rediculously huge jumps and a giant pipe. I've been riding for 10 years and have been getting better in the park the last few years. I ride a 156 burton custom with triad bindings. I wear all oakley gear because i used to work there and got stupid deals on it. I love oakley goggles and glasses. I ride about 6 days a week and am an instructor at alpine.
