I don't know if it froze. it didn't freeze at my place, although I'm 30 mins south of PK and 45 mins south of Holly. They'll groom and if it's warm today it should be tolerably slushy.

spent the day at Mt Holly today (Monday) with the wife to try out her new skis....was a little crusty most of the hill and a little soft up by the lodge....not as bad as I expected...we really only went because the wife got new gear for her bday to try out....have to take what we can get this time of year!

saw a guy pull a nice back flip off of one of the kickers.....guess the icy conditions didnt stop him!

The snow was soft during the afternoon, but turned to icy crap later in the day. It was actually pretty fun.

Also, it was NOT busy at all today, until 6ish at night...I suppose that's to be expected on a Monday afternoon though.

I kill the bunny hill!

after hitting CO and WY a couple weeks ago... hard to motivate to hit the local MI hills... but just checking in... saying hey

conditions are spiraling down quickly in SE MI (Detroit area).... possibly looking to head to Nubs/Boyne this weekend... Bohemia would be nice, but a haul (ideally take a 4 day weekend to go, 2 days travel there/back, 2 days riding)...

got a new stick coming in this week, so will probably be itching to try it out despite the crappy conditions

so perhaps share some turns depending on when/where some of you are riding...


cheers

In case any of you feel inclined to meet with me... I'll be at Crystal Mt this Fri-Sunday doing a Forum demo. You can't demo with me, but you can still ride

Just a thought :P
