I'm hoping to get some runs at a jump line at Highlands this Saturday. I didn't notice any the first time I was there last month but I assume they must have some big jumps if Boyne Mtn had them.

The snow should be soft and forgiving. Perfect time to huck myself over a few.

Hit the day shesh at PK today. Started off great, then about 2pm, the snow turn to slush. Made for a good day of butters and carves, but the park was just to slow. No speed to clear any kickers or to get up on boxes.

At that rate, it'd be amazing to see them last a week unless it gets cold.

yeah it is defo too warm today at 60F. They would be wise to close for the rest of the week, preserve what little base they hae left. This weekend it is only daytime highs in the low 40s and overnight lows a touch below freezing. That would make for two tolerable days. If they're lucky I'd say repeat that and shoot for one more weekend 3/17 & 3/18. The can do it, but it just depends if enough people are willing to show up & ski/ride.

Ahhh yeah dude we're toast. Cannonsburg on Saturday. Next week is all in 50s/60s there is no way any of these hills make it past Sunday.

I wish they might so that I could ride C-burg this week and maybe one more day at Holly/PK next week, but it just ain't in the cards this year.

Friday actually looks like march, high of only 36, low of 20. But if I want to go to the Burg on Saturday I don't think I can ride Friday. I could ride Friday,but then I probably couldn't ride on Saturday. Not sure which is a better choice... Cannonsburg looks OK as long as we get there first thing in the morning like 9 or 930am.

I think my last day last season was around March 12th'ish so I guess it could have been worse with this dreadful winter.

I'm looking at this weekend at Boyne and we'll see what happens the following Friday. That is most likely my last chance of the season.

So I posted my victories in the past so why not post my failures.

Me eating a knuckle sandwich. I suppose the video is 40 seconds too long, sorry. At the 38 sec mark I don't hit that feature because I'm trying to get speed to hit the jump but man that gap was long and I never did clear it.



I don't know what the bigger fail in this next video is, my glade riding or the way I formatted the video. Good lord. Anyways, this was my first attempt. I was sooooo tired when I finally got out of the woods. I felt all 250 pounds at the end of this. Next season when I do this again I'll be around 220. I gotta..
