I was surprised last winter how much I retained from my first spring boarding. It seemed I was even much better than I was when the 2011 season ended! (..I went up to Boyne a LOT between Feb & Mar that first end of season!)

Hope that holds true for this season as well!

oh wow. I don't know why but it just feels like this is going to be a good winter.

Hope your right about that!
I think misfit is out of business or going out of business. they are talking about changing facilities to a smaller place or places) but all that's just talk for now. Check their FB the last few posts have been pretty ominous and from what I hear inside they basically went way overboard on the Fenton location and it came back to bite them.

But yeah, the tramp is fun but you can't use your board on it, and the pit would be fun if you wanted to get upside down so it's too "advanced" for most rides or skiers (IMO that didn't help their business situation but probably would not have been enough to save them).
