Been there, done that. Overshot jump 1 at Pine Knob a few years ago, off-balance, couldn't right myself, landed ass-first on the flats. Knocked myself out cold. Could barely walk the next day. Back on the slopes 4 days later

LOL gif on infinite loop makes me look pro.

Reality is that I ate it a few times first, then landed this one, then went off to do other stuff, then came back to try a few more times and continued to eat it. So, for now, satisfied that I could do it at least once

No. Fucking. Shit.

Really surprised they have not opened yet but I guess they got a bunch of new snowmaking equipment or something? Probably need to get that shiz re-inspected/permitted by the State before they can open. Sucks though, because it's supposed to thaw tomorrow/Friday, so if they were pushing for a Friday or Saturday opener this week, ain't gonna happen. And frankly, with a winter as cold as we've had so far, opening AFTER christmas is pretty unacceptable, IMO.

I agree man. Lansing has gotten more snow this December than we've been receiving in all of December/January in previous years. It's crazy town that they've not been open.

Even crazier is that there hasn't been any bitching on facebook about it from local park rats.

So it looks like those of you heading north this weekend will be getting some decent boarding weather. Those of us that have to stay local,... not so much!

Can't believe that the frigid cold that kept all this beautiful snow in nice condition even after days of riding & re-grooming is now going to get all F'd up by 2-3 days of warm and rain turning it to wet slush! Even if it doesn't melt away a good portion of the base, it will all turn hard and icy after the cold temps return!

I hate riding slab ice!!!!!!!
