Mt. Brighton promises to be open next weekend. Just saying. That means Pine Knob, Mt. Holly, Alpine Valley can't be far behind - any or all of them might also open on Saturday.
On a related note Leo & I went out to Misfit Lab in Fenton yesterday to get a sneak peek and check out the progress Shaun has been making there. The place looks sick, and because it is inside an old auto dealer's repair facility, they have these enormous bay doors that they will be able to open so for some events they will actually use real snow on top of the powderpak.
Here is the jib side, a wide dropin on two different slopes, faux windlip/roller features will supplement several rails, boxes/cannons, etc. Behind the dropin area for this side is the drop-in to the foam pit and the trampoline section.
