@SMDSkata i know Holly is supposed to do a rail jam tomorrow RomeSDS is hosting it but I didn't hear that they were trying to open. I figured they'd just to a parking lot rail if they didn't have snow.

I just checked their site looks like they're trying to open tomorrow weather permitting. Temps seem about right and the ground finally froze last night so that helps, but the wind is being a bitch today it's hard to run the guns when it's as windy as it is today.

@Jay29 Brighton probably isn't worth going to but I might go anyways.

@Everyone - if Holly is open tomorrow I'd much rather go to Holly it fits my schedule better actually.

There will be no park, there will probably be like 2 runs open, and it will be man made dust on icy icy mud. But it will be snowboarding

PM me to exchange cell phone # if anyone is thinking about going either to Holly tomorrow or possibly Brighton on Sunday.

I'll be at Holly sometime around 3:30...PK is open to but the only decent run open is Phase I.

Does Dave still have the same Cell #?

It wasn't bad. 3 runs, 1 chair. Met up with Dave and Jay and brought a friend. Spent the night regaining my skill from last year and dialing in butters. I'm getting somewhat good at balancing on the tail...

Now its time to go party. The friend I bought appreciated me driving him so much, he insisted on buying me a 10$ cigar. I'll drive him everytime...

If you ever can't drive your buddy, I'll drive him for the same fee

Yeah only three runs. There was a small park setup leftover from the Rome pre jib earlier in the day but it was a zoo so many people waiting in line for like 2 features we didn't bother with it. Snow was better than I expected but still 100% man made.

Holly may be open tomorrow but I don't think it's a definite. I'd be surprised if they're open during the week temps are headed back up near 50 but no cause for concern, cooling off again mid-week it should be cold enough Wednesday-Friday to make more snow for next weekend.
