It'll be even better when all the ankle biters & tween's are back in class!
It was the same way Brighton yesterday, wasn't even remotely busy until after lunchtime, and still I don't think I stood in a lift line until almost 2pm. By 3 when I left it was starting to get pretty crowded in the park but the rest of the rails were still not too busy.

I'll be at Mt. Holly with my older son tomorrow (Sunday, 12/29). I'll be in black pants, brick red jacket, and black helmet, and I ride a Donek. Son (7-1/2) will be in black pants, blue jacket, and cartoon dinosaur helmet.

Say hi or join us for a few runs if you see me!

Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.

I'll be up at Shanty Creek on New Years, then Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob throughout the rest of the week.

I'm loving my new K2 Happy Hour board!

Quick question, looking at getting new goggles. What color lenses do most of you use here in Michigan since most of our days are overcast?

I'd use clear if I owned a pair. Haven't found any lens color that makes up for a lack of light and contrast in overcast conditions, unfortunately...

Conditions at Highlands today:

Soft snow from warm temps and a big holiday weekend crowd. People everywhere except the far interconnect lift and peak.
