This is a fairly unusual October. Now I am hearing mixed reports. Snow in a few days to no snow for the next 7-10 days. From my perspective, I would prefer the former. Fingers are crossed for a November to remember. It has been awhile so it feels like this could be the season for one.

Yeah, we've had some snow in the far northwestern UP, and they even have some rain/snow mix forecast for the Detroit area later this week. Lots of cold supposed to hang around thru the end of the month too.

It'd be nice if this wound up being my first season where I could start riding in Nov. instead of a miserably covered, blown snow start around the 1st or 2nd week of Dec. as has been the case around here!

So, If you keep getting the kinds of 3-9, 10-12 in. storms you've been getting, without the usual warm up, I presume that would make for a less extreme, hazardous avalanche prone late season like the one you were worried about earlier? I know there are a host of other variables that could change things for the worse later, but the scenarios for early storm problems you were all concerned about at the start of Oct? That sounded like a real bitch!

Fingers crossed here as well for a favorable prediction out west! (....who knows, this might be the season I get to head that way for the vacation!)

Drive west and feel free to crash here. Get some real riding in.

After looking at the park plans for Brighton and Afton, my kid is pumped to ride them....

If you haven't already, you should PM DaveZ about the park upgrades at Brighton. Not being a park rider, I haven't kept up on what and when those improvements are scheduled to be ready. I know Dave's blogged about it on his web site so he can probably tell you a lot more.

EVERYBODY, save the gray haired two tippers, is amped about Afton's new park. Just that CGI they released made a lot of kids defect from Troll.

Im glad it's warm enough to skate. No pass, not ready for snowy sidewalks.

There have been some dumpy octobers since I lived here. During the season 05/06 it dumped over a foot in October and it dumped good that season. Last season there was nothing at this point in the season. When i worked at the basin years ago it was dumpy early and then stopped.

I will have a pass soon, gettin it this week. Yay pass!

My boyfriend does not like it when people are mean to girls. Dudes that pick on chicks are pussies. Pcik on some dudes that live in Summit, you won't. I have no idea what you look like and never cared to look. I will look now. I have been in Breck a lot lately.

Is that a threat at me? I'm more surprised someone would date you. But once again thank you for telling us all about you.

nope, just saying that pussies fuck with girls. Real men fuck girls good, like my boyfriend. He has no idea who you are. I don't have any idea what you look like cause I don't give a fuck about you. Your a douche, I can tell how you talk to people here.

THis dude shoved me in Breck and my boyfriend was pissed. He wants to punch him. I don't want him to go to jail. No threats here, just saying my boyfriend is more of a man than you. He is good lookin.
