Never been there. It's hard to drive four hours when Cab and Crystal are 2.5'ish.

Leo I think Jon T and I are going to Alpine on Saturday morning.

Sabato, Seems like Nub's should be closer than 4hrs from you but maybe not. Two years ago Boardaddicktd and I drove up there on April 2 and it was 81 degrees. Still had a good time and I'd love to go back. Did you see they made #3 best park in the midwest according to TWSnow this year?

I didn't, that's awesome though. We're lucky to have some great places here in the State.


Nubs Nob is just under four hours away though. I might be able to cut it by some swift driving

Would you say it's better than Crystal or Cab and worth the longer drive?

Everyone pushed back their openings because it didn't get as cold as forecast...

Brighton looks like maybe a 3pm Saturday.

PK was scheduled to open today but that has been postponed. Looks like it will be cold enough tonight for them to blow. Same goes for Mt. Holly and Alpine valley both were talking about saturday opener... still a possibility I guess.

I've only been there once, and like I said conditions at 81 degrees were veeeeery far from ideal but it was still pretty fun and I'd love to see what their park looks like. It is quite a bit bigger (vert) than Crystal, coming in about 500' so it is comparable to Boyne in that regard. Not sure what it compares in terms of acreage, but Crystal has a good amount of terrain, they are probably comparable. All the places in MI, it's hard to say one is definitively "better" than the others, so I'd say it's definitely worth going there at least once to see if you like it.

I remember you guys talking about that summer weather snowboarding trip. Were you guys wearing shorts? haha

And to think I felt fancy riding in a hoodie on mash potato day in March at Holly last spring.

If I can score a deal to Nub's I'd not be opposed to checking it out.

Tofu you guys should be getting some snow soon, right?

Plenty of places on the west side like Cannonsburg, Swiss Valley, etc., depending on where you are.

Yeah man I wore my snow pants for about 3 runs then we went back to the car and changed in to boardshorts and t-shirts. Crazy.
