Can't make Thursday PM but I should be good to go on Friday.

Jesse you may want to go somewhere other than PK. I was there on Friday evening and they only had 2 boxes set up. One was on snowbird and it was one of those wider, butter boxes about 3' wide but you had to hike it b/c they weren't spinning that chairlift. They had the rope running in Pinery park but only one medium-sized flat box there maybe 12' long (not the really long 20-footer). The lineup was insane like 30 kids waiting to hit it and the lip was rutted out pretty bad although the landing was good. It was just too crowded to be much fun. There were a few little side hits where they usually have that hip set up on the right side of Pinery and a small jump at the top which was basically un-hittable because the landing was right where all the kids line up to hit the one box. Lame. They need to figure out a better layout for that shit.

MTH is advertising 4 or 5 different features in the small park though.

So Mt Holly tomorrow AM. Who's all going? And Dave, what time are you going? Trying to figure out if I need to mount my bindings on my Proto first. I'll be going right after PT so probably be there around 9:30

I am going for sure Leo, can't promise to be there by 930 though... on vacation and I will be sleeping in a little bit but I will be there by 1030 or so with that Blank deck for you.

@Jesse - I had a bunch of vacation that I hadn't used up yet and had to take this whole week off.

I'm confused on pricing for tomorrow. Leo is going to be there at 9:30 or something but the rates page says 10-5:30 is $32 but then it says Holiday Rates are in effect.

Anyone know how much it really is?

Holiday rates mean holiday hours in effect, open at 9 instead of 10, all-area day pass $39.

LOL...

$39 is steep but at this time of year and with the season we've had so far I'll pay just about anything to get on the snow. It is interesting though, I got a 4-hr pass at Cab for $37 but a full-day pass was only $45 and Cab is 2x the "mountain" that Holly/PK/Alpine is.

SkiFree deals start up on Jan. 4 so that makes mid-week riding a bit more affordable at most of these places. Looking forward to that and hopefully a few more road trips in January & February and maybe something in very early March.
