Harbor Springs is getting 1-4 inches tonight! It looks like I will be trying to get that monday after TG off after all! With the forecast I'm seeing Highlands should be pretty good by next weekend!

Mt. Holly and PK are talking about maybe getting open tomorrow! FML and this freaking cold I'm nursing, but I'm going to take it easy so I'm 100% for next weekend and my B-day trip north on the 6th! WooHoo!!

I certainly hope the rest of Dec. and the season for that matter lives up to this early opening!

LOL not for me when I went to MTH the other week I rushed and put the ugliest damn coat of wax on a board, ever. I was embarrassed to be riding it it was so bad.

I had the intention of riding my Marhar but then realized that conditions were going to be shitty so I might as well ride the rock board, so the Marhar is actually covered in wax (I never scraped it) and so I probably have to start that one from scratch which will take 2x as long now that I essentially have it covered in storage wax lol.

But I got these from Echelon earlier this week, fresh out of the factory plastic. I might scrape my Marhar and bring with but I'll probably just take a few of these up to Caberfae:
