Yah we were there from like 1030 until just after 2. Wife's first time back on a board since before we had our daughter, she didn't get out at all last winter but fortunately she did *really* good, no edge catches, no hard slams just a few washouts and she had a great time so that's a win in my book.

Even the beginner park wasn't super crowded yesterday did a few laps there before I spent most of the second half of our day in the Timberline park. That park is ON POINT right now. Huge combo box feature like a flat-up-flat-down-flat that they made from sticking to boxes together, a wide diameter pipe feature that I'd never seen there before, two rails up top (shotgun & single barrel), the large down box up top, large flat box, a few flat bars with gaps, up-flat and another flat at the bottom with a stepup jump but the rad feature was their enormous rainbow rail perched on top of a massive hip. Kids were filming there most of the day so I kept out of their way.

I might try and skate out of work early on wednesday and check out Alpine Valley for a few hours in the early afternoon, before this warm front moves in and wrecks everything.
