The goods this weekend will be up north, jealous of anyone who's heading up that way. Should be all-time conditions especially for this early in the year.

Ducked out of work to Brighton this afternoon only to find out that they close from 3-330 for grooming (I got there about 2 and had to leave no later than 4). They are still blowing snow like mad. They finally opened up a larger park section but not until after I left. About 10 features I think.

Heading to Alpine Valley to screw around on the mini park tomorrow.

Crystal is reporting 8 inches in the past 24 and still coming down. 100% open on Friday. Man I wish I could work a way to get there before Saturday.

I should find out today if my personal day for fri. was approved. If it is, I'm outta here early fri. morning. According to JohnDee, it looks like I might be driving back in some deeper shit that is forecast to arrive here sun. That should make for some good mid day sesh's at PK or Holly next week!

Wish I had time & money to get snow tires on the new Focus!

Well I'm just going to have to be happy with riding from noon to close on Saturday up there. I really have no room to complain because at least I'll be up there at some point this weekend right?

I'm getting up there somehow. I don't know if it's sneaking to Crystal for the day on Saturday or an overnight at Highlands Saturday and Sunday but I'm doing SOMETHING.

Bro, meet up with us at Crystal. It's just gonna be me and my buddy Trav. I'd invite you to ride up there with me but I'm staying at my mom's house Saturday night and Sunday morning I have to butcher a deer I left hanging up there a couple weeks ago.

Meanwhile, I'm going to Alpine Valley...

Damn you all. Should be a great weekend up north if you can get it.

I kinda hate Crystal man, short ass runs. It's all hinging on whether we want to pay for a hotel in or near Petoskey or if all we can do is get away for the day on Saturday.

Sab, Best Western in Harbor Springs! If you don't need fancy? It's 5 min. down the road from Highlands! That's where I stay. Simple, basic, clean rooms.

I'm a rewards member so not sure if that had something to do with it, but I got an internet price of 76.95 for a 2 Qn bed room a night. Usually about $119-$130 this time of year. (you can get a King /w a hot tub too if that's more to your liking!)
