As another consolation, if you were driving through Northern Michigan on your way up there as opposed to going through Wisconsin, you may not have been able to get there anyways. The Mackinaw Bridge was closed early Friday morning and didn't open until Saturday I don't think. There were people at our hotel in Pellston that had their UP trips fucked over by it.

Yeah we would've been leaving Thursday morning so the bridge wouldn't have been an issue but no lifts would been. I can lap the park for a few hours and ride chairlift serviced groomers all day but I'm pretty sure I don't have the endurance to hike 1000' more than once and even that might be pushing it lol.

PK was alright today no powpow like you guys up north had but luebird skies and hardpack under loose granular didn't suck. Planned park day anyways so I'm just glad it wasn't one of those days where the corduroy is like concrete. All in all PK's grooming has been on point the last few years. park was good hill wasn't crowded at all but the kids in the parks at PK have the fucking worst etiquette of anywhere I ride.

Might attempt to get to Caberfae on Saturday since Marhar will be there with their 2015 boards. Dave, what sort of selection did they have at test fest? Anything above 160?

I think they have a Bohemian in 160 -- if you can get on that one, do it.

Not sure what else. Pretty sure they have an Archaic and a Throwback in a 158. Don't shy from riding boards a little bit on the smaller side at demo events. You might find that you like them Heck, it wouldn't hurt to try a 156 or 154 just for shits and grins.
