snow was super soft last night (as to be expected). the tow rope line was gettin pretty worn by the end (grass pokin thru). and someone needs to teach these damn kids spacing out there!! kept shuttin down the tow rope cuz everyone was on top of each other. i think they had the same setup from when u went dave. fyi, don't do the up/flat fun box at the end unless you wanna go thru a "grand canyon" bomb out! the others weren't too bad. nothing too exciting but i had a pretty good night. have fun! hopefully the rain stays away for you guys. looks like its coming late afternoon

Yesterday it said it was going to hit 37 up here, now that's 29. I'm worried about tomorrow at 33, but there's snow in the forecast as well so it might stay cold enough to leave most of it on the ground. At least maybe I'll get to board in 2012 D:

MTH wasn't awful today. The snow was actually pretty good but it was definitely spring-like conditions. Soft, but fast slushy stuff. They had a few park features set up, mailbox rail, up-flat wide butter box, shotgun rail was kinda sketchy approach, corrugated pipe and a mild flat down box. Most of the mountain was open, but there were some brown spots/grass showing just about everywhere. The rain wasn't bad, mostly it was just mist for a few hours, but it did start to rain pretty heavily right when we were leaving at 430. The rest of this weekend looks like shit with rain & 40-degree high temperature what's left of the snow will be soft and slow probably.

The forecast moving beyond the weekend looks a bit more favorable with a really cold spell in the works so hopefully they can get some more snow blown on these slopes.

I don't think I'll be riding midweek this week, heading up to Treetops in Gaylord this coming weekend for a few.
