Holy mother of god, I am so sore.

Man that first run of the day yesterday was sketchy but I quickly found my footing again and we had a great time doing ollies over snow clumps and looking for little things to hit.

Holly had 3 real runs going yesterday (they count the bunny hills to add up to 5 open runs). One of those runs had a corrugated tube, shotgun rail and like Dave said, that super low box. At the end of the run people were riding up the wall and jibbing a picnic table on the deck outside of the cafeteria.

I didn't end up hitting the box because I asked someone if it were there when I first got there and they said no, just listing the other features. So I never bothered going over there until the very end when I was already worn out.

Good times though. I hope they can hold their base over this warm stretch.

If I can get off work early enough, might try to hit Pine Knob tonight.

Anybody been to PK since they opened Wed.? How good/bad was it? AV was SOLID ice wed. nite. Figured PK probably was too, but if it doesn't piss rain today, a little warm up might make for somewhat better snow (ice) conditions for riding. By tomorrow, this crappy weather may have their base completely trashed. I don't want to ride in mud!

The snow at Holly was a soft and sticky/slushy early in the day and stiffened up as the sun went down. I imagine PK would be the same.

Yeah, what I figured. With the cold Mon. thru Wed. it was a lot colder all week during the day, and got well below freezing before I got to AV. So no softening at all. Stayed good & hard! Not enough people riding the blue run to cut it up either. LOTS of hard patches for the board to wash out on.

Green run was a little better. More people riding it and chopping' up that ice.

I think PK should have reasonably ridable conditions tonight. A little stiffening after dusk would prob be good! Can't imagine tomorrow would be worth the trip tho! Not supposed to get below freezing at all tonight!

I saw that.



And I nixed my plans to go up north since I was counting on rideable snow tomorrow. Oh well I'll play it by ear if they open I'll at least check it and probably be disappointed...

Dude!! That blows! If I make it out there tonight, I'll definitely be staying till close, so I'll post what conditions were like when I left. Might make predicting tomorrows early conditions more productive for ya!

Kinda bummed. I'm heading up to Boyne Highlands this weekend but they're only open until 4:30p today, Saturday and Sunday.

I should be happy to ride at all but what the hell am I going to do up there after 4:30p?

Now I'm considering just staying for Saturday and coming home at close. Boo.
