Even though Brighton was where I get my first lesson and first few days riding, I quickly chose PK or Holly over Brighton. I went back once last season just to see if maybe It wasn't as bad as I thought, but it was! It's seems to be mostly park rats in attendance and I don't ride park so,.. Too bad too! It's only 20 min. from home!

DaveZ, Leo, Sab, etc, they all enjoy getting into the park so they've got something to be excited about with all the improvements being made in that area. If you are a park rider & Brighton's close to home? You'll probably like the new & improved resort!

If you aren't much into park,.. If I see that things have improved enough for me to have fun riding there outside of the park? I'll post up my impressions on it afterwards!

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!
We are in Nebraska currently. still on schedule. Ready to ride Michigan!

I would rather have flown lol



From the looks of it I'm probably gonna miss you. I'll be there today but likely leaving before your arrival. Best of luck to you though! I know there was at least one skier who came to ride mt brighton on wednesday in pursuit of the epic race, too.

So how the hell did the meet up with Argo go? Wish I could've made it, but the tradeoff was being able to ride up north tomorrow. Sorry Argo, but good luck bro!

BTW I've done the drive from Michigan to Toponas, CO and back a few times. Slightly different route than you but I generally know what your last couple of days have been like!

Met up with Argo and his family. They arrived a little later than planned so we didn't get more than a few quick laps before they shut down for re-grooming. Took a break to eat while that was going on and then I had to leave.

He and his family were very nice people. I wish I had a chance to spend more time riding with them.

Always great meeting a forum member, especially One with pie! I'm driving again, in Chicago headed to Minnesota now.

Thanks chomps for coming out and adding a pie to it, I'm eating it currently!

Debating a late trip to Brighton tonight when baby momma picks up my daughter. I'd get there around 6:45p and they close at 10p

eh, my park days were short-lived and over now. haha

I ended up going to Brighton. Cold cold cold and crazy wind. Good times.

I'm ready for Highlands next weekend, dunno if I can get wifey on board..

Hey guys, I got into this design contest for Marhar and Mue Custom Hoodies for local businesses. I think for this one you have to log into FB to vote? If you find out different, let me know! I had to log in so,..?

Anyway, not going to promote the shit outta this one like the last, but if you like either of my two designs, I'd appreciate a vote or two a day for one or the other. Up to you, not going to bug forum members with this contest. (...although I might bump it once or twice.)

Voting started yesterday and the top three are some Ugly Assed designs if you ask me! All that freakin' yellow?

Here's the link and these are my two designs; They are designed with the Marhar Logo and the name is Craig T.
