nice vid! where were u at Crystal? it didn't look like either of the terrain parks that i'm familiar with.

i went to PK last night. the pinery park was pretty much garbage. the one box they have at the bottom is cocked to the right (snow must be melting underneath of it) and it wants to throw u off mid-box. i can only imagine it will be getting worse this week and they prolly won't bother fixing it. timberline was legit tho. they've even added a few new features...barrel bonk, street rail and a couple new boxes. wasn't my best night out but i did lock on to that shot gun rail at top. what are your plans? u still goin to c-burg this wknd?

I'm going to Cali on Thursday. Bear Mt trip is tentative now. The wives do not want to go. Bro-in-law told all of them that him and I will just go then. So we'll see. I'm sure once he sees the board I'm giving him in person he'll be super excited.

Thing about those powder landings is they don't last long this one was good for about 4 or 5 hits, probably didn't help that Brad faceplanted in to it once or twice. After that it was bare dirt landing. No bueno.

That was the park that is right below the Clipper high speed quad chair. They also had a small jump line set up from the 2-seater chair with 10- and 15-foot tables that was pretty fun. I didn't hit any of those until yesterday morning, wish I would've spent more time on that line.

Still doing something this weekend, I've got more boards to review so I need to get out at least one more time. Cannonsburg might be the spot. Most likely Saturday.

That's when you move snow back to the landing yourself
