Can't make Thursday PM but I should be good to go on Friday.

Jesse you may want to go somewhere other than PK. I was there on Friday evening and they only had 2 boxes set up. One was on snowbird and it was one of those wider, butter boxes about 3' wide but you had to hike it b/c they weren't spinning that chairlift. They had the rope running in Pinery park but only one medium-sized flat box there maybe 12' long (not the really long 20-footer). The lineup was insane like 30 kids waiting to hit it and the lip was rutted out pretty bad although the landing was good. It was just too crowded to be much fun. There were a few little side hits where they usually have that hip set up on the right side of Pinery and a small jump at the top which was basically un-hittable because the landing was right where all the kids line up to hit the one box. Lame. They need to figure out a better layout for that shit.

MTH is advertising 4 or 5 different features in the small park though.

Where I'm riding this year:

Pine Knob - 13
Mt. Holly - 2
Treetops - 2
A-Basin - 2
Mt. Bohemia - 3
Mt. Brighton - 1
Caberfae - 2
Crystal Mountain - 1
