You guys aren't missing anything. Solid ice under thin dust. The approach to the features are rutted out blocks of ice. Not even gonna attempt to jump haha.

dammit. That just figures.


@Leo;

Up north is where I really would have wanted to go for the day. Everyone up there is running mad deals.

Continued convo from twitter;

Gotta post it here so family and coworkers aren't all up in my biz.


Dubstep.

The closest way I can describe how dubstep makes me feel is this;

You know when you're banging a chick and sometimes you just can't cross the peak and bust one? It's like you're so damned close but it just ain't happening?

That's dubstep to me. You hear the potential for a badass bassline or beat and it never comes. It never peaks. You never get the satisfying payoff. It's frustrating listening to dubstep.

That's actually how I'd describe most of the songs in whatever genre Nickleback falls into.

Forgot to ask how much a lift ticket at c'burg is this year. I want to get my girlfriend out on the bunny hill so we can both learn some more of the basics.

I kill the bunny hill!

Cburg participates in ski free deals with shell, no blackout dates or times. So it'll be around 35-40 total for the two of you I would guess.

Broke this week and can't be going to a fancy resort but when it snows anywhere can become a playground. Beats sitting at home on the couch, hey?

Finally got to hit the 8 inches of beautiful powder that hit the other day. Rode at just a small hill nearby, but did pretty damn good considering the extended break I unfortunately had to sit through. Will go again tomorrow and have classes until late Monday, but may try to hit it again Tuesday When I get to leave at 11

I'll be at Mt. Holly tomorrow (Sunday) for the day session. Black pants, brick red jacket, black helmet. I ride a Donek (soft boots, though). I'm not much of a park rider, so I'll be all over the hill. I'll be there with my son, who's 5 and on skis.

Say hi if you see me.
