I am a little tempted into getting it though...what kind of condition is it in?
I always wanted to ride it but Leo has those girly medium bindings on it and it always seemed too much trouble to put mine on to test it out. Now I wish I had.

last I talked to Leo he might be coming to C-burg with me this Saturday. If he can get permission.

If not, I could probably transport it for him.

Permission? Please. I go if I please. I just choose to discuss it with the wife like an adult to make her feel included.

Nice, hope you guys both get out there. You'll note the glaring red zero on my signature signifying my intent to get out there this season.


Speaking of the wife, is she coming on Friday?

Have a feeling it's going to be busy, not sure what it's like on the east side, but we have been getting snow since Monday. What time do you think you guys will be there from?

I think the general consensus is that PK is better for park/freestyle and Holly has longer runs.

The one time I was at PK this season, it was like a junior high school. Loud, obnoxious kids all over the place. Maybe that's your thing though.

The vibe at PK supersucks if it's crowded. But their park is killer, and usually the big park is not as crowded or as bad as the beginner park.

Mt Holly I prefer for just riding, though. More terrain, more varied terrain, etc. And sometimes their park can be a lot of fun, I know they try.
