Opening day where?

Last year, yeah it was November, but then many were closed for much of December until Christmas. What a bummer. Kinda made up for it with March, though.

I always plan on riding somewhere over Thanksgiving weekend. The last few years we've been pretty fortunate and have had local hills open by then.

November 29 certainly seems reasonable, and remember, Tyler can cover Hawk Island in like, 2 nights of snowmaking.

I was at Highlands last year for my birthday trip around the 7-11th of Dec. Boyne was so pitiful, I didn't even bother! ...and it was raining when I hit Highlands by 2-2:30pm. (I rode in the rain tho!) Next two days weren't the worst, but not that great either!

I'm hoping we get enough early cold temps and real snow that the locals, (PK, Holly, etc.) can be open before my birthday trip this year! Although after reading BA's review of the new Marhar, if Caberfe is open? I will likely head up there to demo one of those MarHar Throwback decks!

That is if my truck dying yesterday doesn't kill ALL my finances for boarding this season!

Cab is fun, I wasn't there last year but I think I'll make a run or two up there this season. Just not on busy weekends.

I'm so stoked for this coming season! I have a new burton ak cyclic jacket and last years cartels to put on my evo on the way! Sorry to change the topic, just can't wait till it snows again If you haven't yet, you need to head over to transworld snowboarding and watch the burton street and backcountry movies. They are good and they are free!

Yeah, no problem. They actually had a movie up for one day that you could download for free, but now you have to buy it. I got it, but I can't remember the name of it. lol I know, so I've heard. I'm just hoping it fits alright. I have a poacher jacket size M and it's on the big side for me so I'm hoping the S will fit perfect. They didn't have M left anymore so if it doesn't fit I'm screwed.

I chose the color black. I know its boring, but it goes with about anything. I'm thinking about getting some bright green pants to go with it. What do you guys think? I always thought black and neon green go swell together.
