Boynes officially called their season opener for Friday December 1.

Look for others to follow suit I'm sure Cab will be opening this weekend.

Rumors have it that Mt. Brighton (blech) could open by TOMORROW and that Mt. Holly (yay) could open by Wednesday.

In any case it looks like we'll be sliding this weekend.

So,.. seriously! What spots are you guys planning to hit up with the openings this week? Who's heading north & where? Who's gonna stick around & ride the locals and make do with their sparse man made coverage?

I REALLY would like to head to Boyne this weekend. Don't know for sure if I will. Looks like I'll get my Birthday trip in for sure though! I was seriously worried they wouldn't get open in time this year!! Definitely STOKED about that. I plan to head up Thurs. night Dec. 6th after work. That way I can make first chair Fri. morning and get 2 1/2 days of riding!!!

Breaking Weather News: Heard just now on the WC,.. the Mi town of Wakefield?? has seen 2 ft !! of Lake Effect!! (WTF is Wakefield??? & do they have any hills???)

I'm definitely heading north this weekend. I'm not sure where yet though. I'm going to continue to monitor conditions up there and see who's going to have the most terrain open and head that way.

Right now I'm guessing it will be Highlands but that really depends on how much is open everywhere.

Tree Tops -- Free skiing

Not sure who would be interested but here is an an email I received from a buddy yesterday

I don't know if anyone is interested in skiing yet (or at all!), but I couldn't resist because we got a great deal for skiing for FREE for Dec 14-16 weekend. If you want to drive to Treetops they said that it is snowing and they are also making snow now. Skiing is free Friday, Saturday, and Sunday if you stay there. The rooms are only $79 a night, you have to call them and ask for this rate. The total price for the 2 nights with 3 days of skiing and taxes and fees was $195.00. I think we spent about that much skiing at Mt. Holly and Pine Knob for just 1 day with no accomodations. Information for the free ski weekend is located here TreeTops Resort :: Free Ski Weekend

The room I booked is at "The Inn", not at the nicer "Lodge", but we stayed there last season and it is a typical ski type place, and has a decently sized indoor pool and big hot tub with an arcade and wifi. I suppose if there is a heat wave and there is no snow, it will instead be a swimming and hotel weekend. The rooms have a mini-fridge and they are located right at the top of the ski hills, no shuttle needed. It is family oriented and a good place for kids to ski because all of the lifts dump back off at the area of the Inn.

If you want to save even more money and are willing to put in the effort there is someone selling a $100 gift certificate for $60 or best offer on craigslist.
