I'm stoked.

Later today we're heading up to meet Leo and his clan at Highlands for the weekend. They just announced that they're now basically fully open starting today. Night skiing is now on AND they're getting dumped with snow while lower Michigan gets rain.

...I was planning to hit PK this morning and ride the slurpee before it freezes solid but wouldn't you know it? No freaking am sesh!!
(The way it's been raining, I'm guessing no pm session either now!)
Then I read your post and started thinking about an overnighter to Highlands. Now that they've got the lights on, seems worth the drive,......

....except for that!

I guess I'll just be staying in town and watching the snow melt!

Hey guys sorry just got online. We got here good around 7:30p last night.

Great conditions today, untouched tracks everywhere and I discovered my powder skirt doesn't really work haha

Leo is converted, he loves Highlands. It was his first time.

With the crazy ice storm down south Leo and I decided to stay another day and enjoy the 8 inches of fresh today at Highlands. The snow was already amazing yesterday, today was epic. Soft fluffy awesome power up past our ankles all day with fresh tracks everywhere.

I had a near death experience but that story is for another day lol

Glad you played it safe and waited out the storm! It's nice to get another days riding in good conditions out of playing it safe, isn't it?!
