You should. I don't know where my travels will take me. Wife will be in FL that weekend and I think Mike & I might head out to NY or PA for a quick overnight or two. If not, then I'll push for a day at Boyne.

Yeah you were there late at night, that beginner park gets wrecked from all the kiddies, unfortunately, and nobody takes the initiative to rake it or shovel more snow in the landings. Typically the Timberline park is in much better shape although some of the easier features in that park can get a little rutted, as well.

I hear holly has about 12 features up right now counting the 2 jumps, I think. Currently no boxes (all undergoing maintenance) but my sources tell me they should have some ready by Saturday.
