weather looks like kind of a bummer. It might snow, but it might also rain. At least it will not be cold. Except for sunday when the low is a mere 10 degrees. That will make for icy icy icy...

Friday sounds like a good day to huck park jumps for the first time in 2 years. Got KTFO a few years back and haven't really hit a park jump since then. But if it's 40 degrees and wintry mix outside I might just have to go for it.

Well you'll just have to be a little careful, that is Unless you want to be he guy people end up talking about for a while... Haha. I think you'll be fine. Just stay away from the last jump on the left, that's the one that wrecks a lot of people.

most recent weather reports look good. Tomorrow will be a mixed bag with some rain/wintry mix early little to no accumulation but turning to snow late with 2-4" and Saturday additional 3-6".

Forecast is fairly across the northern half of LP, Shanty getting slightly more (8.3") than the West side over at Crystal (6.9") but either way it looks like we'll be getting some freshie-fresh.

I might just have to go both Friday and Saturday too I mean -that much fresh snow is just too much to pass up!

Snow in March, especially early in March, is pretty common up around those parts, but this winter any snow is a welcome surprise

Saturday should be a great day on the marked trails if the snow totals add up like they are forecasting. Sunday will be the best day for glades/tree riding.

You know, I guess I could possibly go sunday... It would just have to be till like 4. I'm leaving from my house at like 6pm to begin the trip to florida! Haha me and my 3 siblings are driving down. So I hope there's still snow when I get back!

Hitting up O Park for my first time tomorrow, I'm pretty stoked about it. My friend texted me saying they're getting a foot of pow right now, I checked the weather and have no idea what he's seeing. Should still be a great day.

I just bought a vanity plate;



Can't wait to get it, lol
