haha, scorpion excluded that Proto looks good on you.


I posted this video in the general thread for the people hating on our terrain but I should also post it here for those that don't venture outside of our thread.

There is some pretty good stuff if you hunt for it. Come over to the west side and hike the dunes. I grew up in Muskegon and we would go to Hoffmaster state park and if you venture left of the main parking area there's a pretty good run to hike with a nice kicker at the bottom.

Yea I bet you could find more stuff like that out in the area where I'm originally from as well. I'm thinking the Nordhouse Dunes just north of Ludington. That just gave me an awesome idea to try out!

I've also heard of people poaching some of those hills up in Sleeping Bear Dunes.

That's where it all began.

C'mon guys. It's only 5.7 mil. Surely we can get a kickstarter going and buy this thing right?

I'm trying to find some stats on it, the vert and all.

I'm seeing it was 600 feet vert, beats Highlands by 50ft and apparently Awful Awful was the steepest around.

I've never heard of this until today!

We lived up near Frankfort when I was born and my mom used to ski there back in the day. She said Awful Awful was pretty scary and wouldn't ride it even though she handled pretty much everything Crystal had back then.
