Pine Knob wasn't too bad today! (...granted, I've got limited experience to draw on.) Snow was pretty soft most of the day! But not too
wet or slushy! Nowhere near as bad as I thought it might be!
At one point I decided to try taking a few runs over the rollers that the big jumps are built on. Not the jumps themselves but the mounds for the landing transitions. Wanted to see if I could get the feel for setting up the lines, going over and down. Wasn't looking to try and get air, just manage to hit them with enough speed to maybe get a little ("little"

Loved how empty the runs were most of the day though! Non stop down & back up, down & back up!!! No dodging Toddlers either!!!
