I was at PK yesterday morning. Didn't do a full writeup on Timbo but they had added some features since the last time I was there which was Saturday. New features were c-box and I think what is referred to as a bike rack rail, even though it does not resemble a bike rack at all.

It's pretty close to where it was last season. That rainbow rail with the hip is insane, if you're good enough (which I am not) I saw some kids boosting that hip and tail-tapping the top of the rainbow out and off the other side. Pretty rad. but you can also hit the hip as it's own feature.

I'll probably play hooky from work again next week one day and get out there when the slopes are empty.

If there's snow left. 61 tomorrow.
Yeah, I don't have the balls right now for the rainbow rail. I saw some video of a guy flying off a rainbow rail and it scared me shitless.
Bike rack rail as in the one after the C-Box? I like that one - it's really smooth.
My favorite feature right now is the right-most flat box at the bottom. You can either ride it as a normal box, or stay on the edge of the box and use it as a hip.

Confirmed,.. Holly's open 9 am. (guess with the weather they didn't get their pm session open last night)

Sabatoa, I've got the over mitt protectors. I'll bring them in case you haven't turned up your crap gloves for the tow rope. See y'all out there!

Oh yes, I'm bringing the GP. Hoping someone will help me out with a follow along or two. I'd like to use it to get some critique on my riding, compare my progression etc. (...not to mention proving I'm not just a creepy "Old" dude, but I can ride also!!) Then I can be the "Steezy Creepy Ol' Dude!"

Might have to change my user name after,.. How does "Suzy Creep Steeze" sound!!!

All hills closed today as expected...

Good news is there's a small amount of snow in the forecast tonight (1" or so) and temps look prime for them to be able to blow a lot this week. I'd expect them to re-open Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.
