This is a great day when you're already at the resort but getting there is an adventure. I bet it would take me 90-120 mins to get to Brighton, normally a 45 min drive.

Plus 40 minutes in line for your lift ticket. Definitely not worth it.

I just got back from Caberfae. I-96 from GR to Portland was some of the worst conditions I've ever driven in. We had fun up there playing in the new sidecountry terrain but I am just so fucking glad to be home right now.

I'll be at Caberfae on Wed. Looking forward to a couple demo rides on the Marhar boards. Haven't been back to Cab since that first late season visit my first season. Definitely interested in the new terrain. Just not sure I'm ready for tight trees yet.

Got a little bit of (tiny) air today at PK. riding off the rolloer between the trees to the right of Quicksilver. DaveZ was ollieing off of it the other day, I wasn't getting nearly that high myself, but I did land and ride em out. Softer landing today than when Dave was riding it. . Im willing to risk/try more in the fresh than on crust.

International airfare, dudeski. I bet there's at least $170 USD in *taxes* tacked on to each ticket. It's not a short flight, and it's to a relatively regional airport, not a major hub. $600/person seems about right.

Fuckin' day care has a "snow day" tomorrow... That is majorly wrenching my snow day plans... I have some ideas that involve Mt. Brighton since I have to go pick up my mother-in-law in EL tomorrow evening, but I was really hoping to get to Mt. Holly...

When Sab is say total, I am just wondering if it's only airfare or he got a great deal and it includes something else?
