I just wondered if there was some sort of grand opening or an event or something like that. If this becomes a full-fledged SF-Michigan meetup I might be down for getting over there. It's a Friday, so I'd have my boys with me, but maybe would be a good chance to get them riding, if the place is open.

Just wondering if anyone had any info on Caberfea's claim that they were opening up "Quote" backcountry "Un-Quote" this season. Is that a joke? What, r they just opening up a side of one of those 2-300 ft hills without any lift access and calling it BC just cuz you have to hoof it back up?

Are they thinning some trees for a grove type run, or r they just letting people duck into the woods? Seems a little disingenuous to lable that as backcountry.

Their web site claims they will have the only BC in the LP. No snowmaking, no grooming, no lift access. (...and I presume no Patrol?)

Just wondering if anybody had any additional 411 on this?

Oh, and if I'm not up at Boyne that weekend, I will definitely be at Brighton on the 6th.

Guys, check out the "Epic race" thread for more details on Argo's reasons for driving 20+ hours to come to Mt. Brighton! (...no, it's not because he's insane either. Just crazy maybe!)

Oh, now I understand why he is going to Mt. Brighton...a place I have never been to in spite of the fact that it is only about an hour from my house.

Chomps, if you've ever been to Caberfae, it's just that area near the top of Smiling Irishmen that many people already ride down.
