So I have been sitting in my chair thinking about how pissed I am with some of the local resorts and their "condition reports". I travel up to Michigan to do most of my boarding but I thought of an idea I assume everyone could benefit from. My idea is to create a website that allows everyday boarders like us to report the true conditions of different ski areas and resorts. I'm tired of the "we have 20in of groomed snow!" when in reality they barely have 3in. Some people have to travel and without knowing the actually conditions its a waste of gas. With this website we could post pics and share the truth about the conditions or the ski areas as a whole. What does everyone think? Should I create this website?!

Vote for my tshirt design this week! Help me win 2 Grand!

There's an app that does this:

OnTheSnow App Transforms Snow Report

I do like the idea. A website could also work but there are some issues that I'm not sure how to tackle that would make it or break it as a concept. Shoot me a private msg here or email me off site and we can chat about it?

Or we can all pitch in, get loans, and open our own resort. Very complicated with multiple hands, but end game is to at least break even and ride whenever we want.

Far fetched, I know. A guy can dream. The website is a good idea though because between everyone, one of us is always riding.

When (not if) I hit the lotto, I'm definitely buying at least one large chunk of land that includes some vertical, and I'll have some type of lift put in (even if its only a tow rope).

Mt. Holly charges $39 for a day? I'll let you guys use it for $37.99. Just kidding.



By the way... I still check this thread (obviously, if I'm posting this now) but I "liked" NS on facebook and noticed that they will be at Cannonsburg Ski Area on Saturday for a demo and some other stuff.

Thought you murder-mitten people would be interested in that tid bit of info.

People might also be interested in this camp at Bittersweet, January 19-21. Evenings Thurs & Friday, day on Saturday. I think it is a 3-day affair so I will not be able to attend...

I just won't be going to the ski areas that refuse to participate. I'd rather drive the extra hour, get the better deal AND the better hill up north.

I'm sure they don't want my discounted money anyways, they're counting on all you local riders to support them.

I hate you.

Did you want me to bring in your lens and the blank to work this week? I'm at the office all week besides Friday obviously.
