Glad everyone's making it out for their first turns! I rode a few hours at MTH again yesterday morning with Mikein248 for a few laps too.

Slush was fun but it was painfully obvious that they don't have enough of it. They were literally filling in brown spots by hand, with shovels of snow from a few feet away LOL. We definitely need more snow or cold temps before we'll see either of PK/AV/MTH/Brighton open again, but it's looking like they *might* have a window to make some snow later in the week and hopefully back open by Saturday morning.

@Chomps Boyne got some natural snow and they blew a ton of it, that stuff should stick around for a while so they'll have terrain open it will just be a question of whether it's slush, snow, or ice

Yes we're off to a rough start but it's still very early. Hopefully temps return to a normal range soon and we can get on with winter as it's supposed to be.
