Would you believe that coat is Columbia?

I got my wife this Salomon Lotus last year on closeout for about $125 or so, it'll be her first time riding on it. I really like the NS boards if my wife would ride more than 4-5 days a winter I could justify the $$$ but as it is she only rides a few times each year.

Frazho is between 10-11 mile rd. I think City Airport is 6 or 7 mile.

Yes! Frazho is 10 1/2 mile rd. Gratiot and Harper run perpendicular to it.

I'm down to do mini park sessions if there's good snow on the ground. At this park is it a hill or something or do you bungee? What sort of features are there or do you have to bring your own?

Switched my cartels over to my new board. Comparison of new vs old:





Now new with the cartels (tan color does not match banana magic colors haha):




Leo - I also got those bonfire spectral pants in and I really like them. Once I had my boots on they looked good. You definitely won't mistake them for slim fit but they aren't super gangster baggy, especially when you have your boots on.

Also - the banana magic is actually SOFTER than the old ride board, which was unexpected. From reading online I was thinking the magic would be like a 2x4.

hit up mt holly last nite. conds were pretty damn good. they had a few features open in the terrain park, a flat step down wide rail, an up down rail and a couple culvert features. i think i already bruised my ribs on the rail hah! my new board was sticky as a muther fucker the first time on and i went over my board! alrady put sum cuts into the new boards edges. damn they weren't kidding-this K2 is super soft! found sum small jumps and hits around the rest of the mtn at the edges of the main runs to throw sum small airs. overall, i think i like the new stick! stayed till they closed at 11 last night. wasnt too busy but the hi-speed was crowded as usual. as always, first sesh out made me sore as hell so it'll prob be a good wk b4 im back in!
