Snow started about 15 min. Ago. Still above freezing, but its starting to come down heavy.
Nubs was OK. Snow was a little slow in spots but not bad.

Made my first tennative trips into the trees today. It was a mixed bag as far as how well I did. Fun tho. Scary too!!

If video any good, will post some later.

Gonna eat something now 'n' then hit highland for nite boarding.

Snow was def slow today, resulted in knuckling a smaller kicker with a larger gap more times than I care to admit. It was good enough for me to attempt Boyne's BIG jumps on the far left. Never stuck the landing but cleared the jumps everytime, landed and stupidly washed out before I could call it a landing.

Had I more time I'm confident I would have stuck it.

From what I can tell from the snow on my rental car, the Harbor Springs area definitely got the 12 to 15 inches they predicted!!! Today should be AWSOME!!!

it was absolute carnage this morning at Crystal Mountain. Power went out at our condo last night around bed time. SOmetime during the night the whole resort lost power and when we woke up this morning they did not know if/when the power would return. There were trees down everywhere and several cars destroyed/impaled by fallen trees. I think a lot of people left because they were without power.

Lifts finally started spinning around 1015am, but we got hit with a health dose of "Sierra Cement" it's deep, but it's heavy as shit:

That thick wet powder is something else. If you ollie down hard off that stuff, it pushes back just as hard and launches you even farther.
