Just make sure there's a good chunk open before you venture up. They have been running as a not for profit the past few years, so while it's awesome to support local, they don't have a massive snowmaking budget like the big boys
oh good to know.

I think I saw David_Z say that Mt Bohemia hasn't even opened up yet this year. cray.

We were trying handplants on the quarter at Pinery. Didn't work out too well. But I was doing great blunts/back lips on the box there. Actually sore today for the first time in a long time that's how i know it was a good session.

Yeah, I can see what you're talking about on the stiffness.

Man, I wanted to work on hand plants on Highland's half pipe this season *grumbles*

You gotta take Leo up there soon.

What's a blunt/back lip on a box?

I concur with Sam. I'm only motivated with others in the park. Otherwise I become more chicken than I normally am.

Unfortunately I don't know if I'll make it back to Boyne this year, I've gotta get my money out of that Crystal pass a few more times and that'll probably do it for me.

Like a tailslide either a frontside approach and swing your nose over the rail to slide sideways on the tail (blunt) or a backside approach swinging the tail over the rail to slide (lipslide)

The last trick in that video was *kind of* that. I got much better yesterday.

Yeah dammit, I should have waited on the kicker so we could play in the park some. I had lofty plans of getting you to Hawk Island too.

Lori still has her pass to Boyne. Maybe the four of us can go up, you and Lori can ride and May and I will hit up the Slopeside Lounge.

Oh that was a nice rebuttal. Way to tie in the whole salsa thing haha.

I want to go to PK. Absolutely 0 reason for me to want to go to Holly now. Better park at PK and really fun series of rollers.
