Inaugural soft opening at Hawk Island Snowpark in Lansing today. They did everyone a solid and didn't charge for lift tickets.
Only had a couple features out and the tow wasn't set up yet but it was still a damn good time and it gave us an idea of how killer this will be next season when weather is better.
The snow was glacieresque, not sure what that was all about but once I got used to it it wasn't so bad. I stuck to 50/50s on the flat box. If I had more time I would have graduated to boardslides. Maybe. hah
Talked to one of the guys that set up the features, he said they're buring in 2-3 feet of snow so there's a solid base after all the blowing they've been doing so it should be open for a few days at least. Maybe more if weather cooperates.
We gave them some ideas on additional features and where to put them, they're still learning so there's room for improvement.
oh and my kick ass wife nailed her first boxes today. hawt.
