Cool, we're hitting Blue on Wed during the day. Hopefully, it'll be the same!

Haven't been to Louis yet this season, but maybe on Sunday. Went twice last year & snow was so much better than at Blue.

Also, I think Burton's gonna be at Glen Eden on March 6th doing free demos. Definitely checking that out!

Default Burton demos at Glen Eden

The event is for women only, but not sure if the boards available for demo are also women only.

hmmm... interesting. unfortunately, that is one day that i won't be able to make it out... lately, i've been going with some noobs and lending them my wife's old gear... would be nice for some of them i'm sure to try out new stuff. oh well, if they want to go they can get on it themsleves!

so has anyone been out on the "new" snow that we recieved? really sucks that its already trying to go away... but it was nice to actually see snow accumulating at least once this year.

Went to Blue for the day today. They got 8cm overnight & it was snowing while we were there...awesome conditions!

Fresh snow = courage

Tried a few small jumps, including the one in the "baby" park at the bottom of Happy Valley. Also loving the new 410 bypass...we can make the trip in under 2 hours now!

I'm in Mississauga, so we take Hwy 410 through Brampton. It used to end at Sandalwood Pkwy, where we would hang a left to get to Hwy 10, which pretty much goes straight to Collingwood. They've recently extended the 410, so it meets up with Hwy 10 further north. It shaves a good 10-15 min off the trip!

With 20+mm of rain forecast over the next 5 or so days for SW Ontario, we'll be lucky to be able to ride until the end of March break, in my humble opinion. Here's hoping Collingwood stays dry.
