haha, yeah.

I'm 45 min from Brighton, an hour and fifteen from Holly and about two and a half hours from Caberfae.

Those are the only places I've been so far.

You guys are lucky to have so many hills (for what they are) within an hour or less. I'm looking forward to Hawk Island though. At 10 mins from my house and $7 tickets it will be perfect for after work shred.

Lansing is what about an hour from Mt. Holly? That's not too bad of a drive.
Somebody sounds jaded...

But in all seriousness, he really is missing out on our smiley faces. Smiley faces to have a pitcher with during mid-shred lunch.

just booked a trip to Blue Mtn with a friend for December 22-23! anybody else interested lemme kno. we got a hotel and lift ticket combo for one night, two days. im stoked! i did this same thing two years ago and it was sick. december's usually a great month for that lake effect snow machine over there. another plus is that the week before Christmas is actually pretty slow compared to the crowds after the holidays!

Blue Mountain is like 15 hours from where you'll be at school.

Searchmont is right across the Soo border you can make it there in 5-6 hours.

Since some of you dudes are from the Lansing area, I'm hoping you'll be watching the Carrier Classic tonight and cheering on the Spartans.

GO GREEN!
