Ditto. They are both equally as good as each other in my opinion. Mark is hilarious in TITA, just watched it again the other day. I've watched both more then I can count I believe.

I saw AOF right when it first came out, Microsoft Live had it for rent on Xbox.

I'll look into TITA though.

i keep checking the extended forecast it is hard to believe but this winter looks like it is going to be off to a worse start than last year.

God I hope Not!! The WC just gave a 2-3 in. forecast for the Boyne area & western UP. Hope that's just the start of it!

I'm making a point not to track or pay too much attention because as we all know, a watched pot never boils.

I'm just trying to occupy myself a day at a time and hopefully there will be a day soon when I can take a spontaneous trip somewhere.

I know. I'm itching to ride. Probably going to make a trip over Thanksgiving weekend if any of Hunter/Holimont/SevenSprings/etc. in NY or PA has enough snow to be open.

Yeah, I am too. I think something that's helped me is that we're planning a 4 night 5 day, 5 resort trip during Christmas break and it's kinda tiding me over a little.

Boyne Highlands
Nubs (or Highlands again)
Boyne Mountain
Shanty Creek
Crystal Mountain

Between December 26-30.

I think I have the wee one during thanksgiving weekend so I gave up on thinking about riding then.

I haven't been to any of those, but we're going to try somewhere in Michigan after Christmas too. What is the best place?

"Best" for What??? Gotta let us kno what U R into,.. What's your skill level etc. Different folks will prefer different resorts for different reasons!

I'm a second season NooB, but I've been progressing fairly well. At least for "basic" riding, carving, switch riding etc. Not yet into park tricks or getting air. (...although gettin' air is one of my goals this season.)

Keeping that in mind,..
I really like the first three spots, in descending order of preference;
Boyne Highlands
Boyne Mnt.
Nub's

Crystal would be my fourth pick, and haven't been to the others,.. So...

Also,.. as a NooB. I've haven't yet ridden any really "EPIC" snow or resorts. (...another of my goals this season!!!) So if you are say an experienced rider,.. My picks may totally SUCK for you and what your looking for!

Give with a few more details, and the folks here will be happy to opinion the hell outta you!!!
