Thinking of selling my 2012 Never Summer Proto CT 157. Any takers for $200? Rather not have to ship the thing so one of you buy it!

Damnit!!! (...sigh) I may be looking at a REAL shitshow @ Highlands this weekend!!!
Boyne's web site has nothing available for lodging, B. Mt or Highlands. I got the last room they had available @ the BW I stay @ in Harbor springs! (...@ a ridiculously high rate I might add!)

I guess we've all been s-o-o-o-o desperate for decent snow here in MI. that EVERYFUKINBODY is headed up north this weekend? I'd say Fuckit but I know I'm desperate, and the way things have been going, who knows. This might actually be the best snow we get up there this season!

Sabatoa,.. what we saw @ Boyne Mt. over the holiday's might have been nuthin' compared to what I afraid I'm gonna see this weekend! (Fuck!!)

According to snowboarding "law" it has too small of a waist for 12's....the 157 is 25.3 and with the larger boots you would want something at least 26. Which is why they have the Proto CTX where the 158 has a waist of 26.4.....BUT...that difference is only 1.1cm....for us 'mericans that's 0.4" which isn't really anything and if you were able to, which is see you currently aren't, I would say take it out for a test drive because it would really depend on your stance, width, and angles.

I am a little tempted into getting it though...what kind of condition is it in?

Remember what I told you, hit up the remote lifts first. The Valley lift on the far left services some fun runs and then the interconnect, the North Face on the far right will probably have the shortest lines. Let the rabble deal with the lift lines on the center runs. Those remote runs close around 4pm, then you can transition over to the main runs.
