Supposedly that's going to allow them to open a bit more of the slope for riding/skiing, underneath the lift mostly.

On that note, I hope they figure out the issue(s) they were having with the Loki Quad last year. Fucking thing was breaking down all the time it seemed.

Yeah, probably re-grading it like they did with Thor & Loki to make it a more consistent grade. Should be a nice improvement.

Default Getting Seriously Jonez'd!!!

Thought I'd pop in here and see if maybe I could commiserate with the rest of the MI guys! Just wondering if any of you were getting more and more "Antsy" as you read the posts from some of the other regions? Out West, it seem to be fast approaching their season!!!


Anybody else going to be getting passes for PK & Holly this year? I'm thinking about getting mine for PineKnob next month and maybe adding the $150 to ride Both!

Kinda pisses me off tho, almost 6-700 dollars for a pass to those short crowded runs, and it didn't quite cost me $400 for the Boyne Silver pass!

Ah well, It should still save me some money!


Fuck!! I'll never make it another 3-3.5 months!!!!!!

This coming season I would like to really make an effort to hit holly (as my local spot) at least once a week. One or two shots to snowshoe maybe a couple to boyne and of course my big trip to washington.

Yeah I've always thought it was obnoxious how much the little hills down here charge for passes.

My goal is to drop about 20lbs between now and the start of season. I gotta get on that quick.
