If Granite was closer than 4 hours from Chicago I would definitely be there every weeekend, Devilshead doesnt compare.
Saturday night I worked the bottom of Comet from 3:30-CL. Believe me, I felt how cold it was. At least you get some warmth from riding. The crowds really died down once the cold snap moved in. Hill looked like a skating rink at the end of the nighit from the high winds polishing it. Groomers were there until after 3am trying to get things back to manageable.
Luckily I had the top of Comet on Sunday night so I stayed warm. Boring as hell in a shack though.
