I'm glad I found this thread! I'm down in Toledo. It's nice to know who the "locals" are in this forum. I'm excited to get back up to Crystal Mountain. They build some really nice features there and the price isn't too bad considering how nice the resort is. I also love heading east to 7Springs. From Toledo, the drive is exactly the same to Traverse City or 7Springs, so I just go where the best snow is.
I'm actually building a ramp tomorrow afternoon to take up to our cottage in southwest michigan. We have two small hills and we're going to get a banshee for some fun, free airtime.
Leo, it sounds like we're about at the same level of progression (you're probably slightly ahead of me). We should ride this winter when the snow finally gets here.
