My girl and I are getting breakfast and then heading out to Holly in a bit. It's our last run of the season.

oh, we have two extra ski free vouchers that we won't use up this season. Shoot me a text if you're going to be at Holly and we can arrange to get them to you.

sabatoa too bad we didn't get a chance to meet up today! we probably passed each other on the chairlift a few times

FYI anyone considering going to holly tomorrow, you might want to change your plans unless you're going primarily for the beer & the pond-skim. Most of the terrain including the parks is unrideable, and it is the dirtiest, slowest, mashed potatoes snow that I've ever ridden. If it doesn't freeze overnight it will be as bad or worse tomorrow.

Haha, thanks! I'm pretty proud of the fact that my 5th time (ever) on a snowboard, I had the confidence to tackle something like that.

I gotta work on my edge control and stuff...I high-sided once and wiped out so hard that my front binding came undone! Then, another time, I caught an edge and apparently was airborne for something like 6 feet...my snowboard track ended, then 6 feet later, my skid mark started. But yes, I was "that guy" doing garlands and sideslips down the entire hill most of the time.

I also didn't realize how easy it was to make a wrong turn and wind up on the black-diamond terrain parks . Although, I guess looking at the trail map, it's not that hard, especially right around Chair 2.

I kill the bunny hill!

sucks! holly says they're closed for the season unless a random snow storm pops up and pk says they may open next wknd weather permitting. not sure if holly just closed today or if they closed on sunday? i didn't check their website yesterday so i'm not sure if their sunday session went off? either way looks like we're goin up north here on out! the season has come to an end down here.
