LoL. I always love a good speed session down Loki or Thor too.

But at Highlands? Screw that. I'm taking my sweet ass time on that wide open terrain

WTF????

Here I am sitting around, feeling sorry for myself cuz I'm missing out on another serious snow dump when I check on the PK webcam? Wtf? The place looks practically empty. I checked Holly's cams too and while their main lift looks like it has a shitshow crowd lined up at it, I don't see a lot of ppl on the hill from the other cams.

I imagine the roads probably do suck ass right now, but seriously? If my back was right? I'd be out there riding this shit in a heartbeat.

So, how about it? Who got out to enjoy this snow event? Were the crowds as light as they looked. I seriously need a vicarious snowboard fix today!

Mt Holly was great today. Blizzard heavy wet snow fell continuously. .. not too crowded. They built some new park features and have a wall ride ready to install early next week but I didn't spend any time in the park today. Snow was fast and wet, major push piles by 3pm though. Roads were bad but manageable; took me about 1:20 each way (normally 55). 7 cars in the ditch between there and square lake road on the way home including one that was flipped over on its hood in the clearing stages, looked bad but if I was a betting man I'd say it probably wasn't fatal... I drive 45-50 with 4wd. .. cant understand why little cars were speeding past me like didn't you see all those cars in the ditch???

Crystal today. Snow conditions were good, not great. They didn't get nearly as much snow as we got downstate it seems. Powder to be had in the trees in spots, mostly in the Abendroth and Ridge glades, groomers were packed powder.

I'm beat up bad. Blew out a toe slider on my binders off a homemade kicker on the North Face, had to ride all the way back to the shop without a toe strap on my front foot. Wrist got twisted up on that one and still hurts.

The Buck glades were shit. REALLY tracked out in most spots and I T-boned a medium sized tree with my board after catching unexpected air off a mogul. Didn't blow out an edge thank God but did gouge the base of my board. No core shot, but bent my right ankle back the wrong way. Fucker is swollen good. And my left tricep feels all jacked up for reasons I don't know.

Oh well it was good to ride in the sunshine for a change.

So it's only Tuesday, but what are people's plans this weekend? I think I'll be up north but not sure. No weeknights for me this week though, ankle still isn't in the greatest shape.

Chomps, you gonna be back at it or is your back still getting at you?

Highlands on Saturday and Sunday. I haven't ridden since the January 25th, pow day.

Kind of annoyed about it but whatever. Looking forward to the weekend.

Chomps, you gonna be back at it or is your back still getting at you?
Better but not great! Thanks for asking!

Not sure if I will get out this week or not. Back has improved some, no thanks to the doctors. Did some googling and Symptoms seem like it's my "Psoas" muscle that has been causing this. Doing some targeted stretches and have been taking muscle relaxer since yesterday. More improvement from those two things than all the adjustments last week, the ice, heat, rest etc.

But improvement has been incrementally small. Prolonged sitting, at computer or in truck contributes/aggravates this muscle spasm. So I'll just have to wait and see. May feel good enough by Sat. or Sun. Hope so!

Sab, wish I was heading that way! Have fun!
