Heard from Argo last night. He is definitely going to be at Mt. Brighton on Sat. He is shooting for a 1-3pm arrival. I am staying local this weekend so I plan to be there to greet him and his family.

Anybody else from this regional forum planning to show up? It would be nice to have a MI. welcoming committee there to greet them!

You might as well stay local because I just got off the phone with my mom and she said they're only supposed to get a little bit of snow up that way according to the local news.

I doubt I will make Brighton tomorrow; kid duty in exchange for being able to get to Crystal on Sunday.

Yeah, it didn't look like they were getting much out of this cold spell/ I figured I'd save my money for after they've got the entire hill open and running night op's. That way I can get the most ride time for my money.

I will likely be hitting PK tonight, and maybe PK or Holly after meeting Argo tomorrow. (...unless all the Brighton upgrades prove to be good enough to stick around there.)

So anyway, hope at least a few of you guys can make it out tomorrow, and if not? Maybe I'll see some of you at PK or Holly this weekend!

Yeah Leo is planning on getting out there but will have to leave before 3pm.

I'm 50/50. I'd have to rearrange stuff and get a sitter.

LOL!! Every now & then I feel a little sad that at my age I don't have a wife & family. Then I read these kinds of posts and Poof!!!! Sadness All Gone!! (...Then there's Argo, who is out shredding it with his entire family!)

Sab, you gotta get the little one hooked on something "Snow!" And soon, then she'll be buggin' you to get out n shred, eh?

Well, whether or not anyone can get to, or stay at Brighton long enough to meet up with Argo, I hope to see a few of you there and I will pass along your well wishes! It'll be good to see Leo again! I miss seeing him around here! He'll be able to visit with his old NS Proto cuz that's what I'll be riding!

Vail put like $10 million into the place. Snowmaking, park, I think lift stuff like magic carpet over ropes.
