yeah i've been meaning to stop by Don Thomas and pick up one of those White Gold Cards.

I do mostly midweek evenings locally for a few reasons:
- Discounted lift tickets with the Shell program (hopefully they do that again)
- Much less crowded - no waiting for jumps, rails, lifts, etc.
- on weekends I like to not be in Metro-Detroit if I can avoid it

With that White Gold card, what I'm banking on is that Shell runs that ski free promo again this year. I'll use those vouchers for mid-week riding, and use the WGC for weekends (which are more expensive and the shell program no good on weekends anyways).

Otherwise, yeah I can always be persuaded to ride weekends, mornings are better & less crowded usually.
