Do they still sell the msia gold card? Give you one lift ticket to about 20 or so hills in michigan.
Yes they do... also includes a few free tune-ups. It's a good bargain for sure

Obviously no guarantees, but they can open on as little as 3 days, if conditions are right.

Damn, even Hawk Island is blowing now.



I still have to buy my pass there. Maybe if I wasn't buying spontaneous trips to Colorado..

I'm doing Highlands Saturday and Sunday.

If Holly or PK open by Thursday I'll probably get out there too.

I think MTH was blowing last night, I checked in around 9 and their crew was on standby waiting for temps to hit that elusive 28F.

What are the chances Hawk might open this weekend? Doesn't quite look cold enough the remainder of this week to blow any substantial amount of snow but then again it's a small hill they may be able to cover it pretty quickly. But possible rain on saturday...

I'm going to be in the Lansing area for holiday part on Saturday, possibly riding at Cab or Crystal on Sunday, but if not then I'll probably hit MTH.

I just don't see it. I was shocked to see they were blowing. Maybe it was a test of the lines or something but I really don't see them opening this week/weekend.

This is what they did so far;

I'm sitting in a loading dock down in Findley OH. It's tryin' hard 2 snow down here.

I sure was hoping that optimal cold would hold all week up @ Highlands, but WC 10 day has Petoski's low temps in 30's after 2nite & rain forecasted 4 Sat. Really want to go up again for a quick ovrniter, but I sure don't want 2 spend more money on another weekend of crappy to marginal conditions!!

DAMN THIS WEATHER!!!!

Winter just doesn't want to get going yet, even up there. Crazy that this coming weekend last year was when we had our forum meetup at Crystal.

Maybe I'll take a look closer to the end of the week and see if there's a better option than Highlands.
