One word for my wknd at Boyne: Insane. Frikken party for sure! Needless to say i didn't get a whole lot of boarding in! $57 lift ticket on saturday and I probably did 6 runs, hah. I kinda figured thats what my day was going to be like so i wasnt that mad about it. The party is at mid mountain so you basically pay a $57 cover charge to get up! What was great, was watching everyone ski and ride back down to base once they kicked everyone out. I've never seen so many missles (snowboards without anyone on them) in my life! So yesterday I was determined to get some runs in since I didnt get any in on saturday. Honestly, their snow was really good. Awesum conditions for this time of year. There's a terrain park on the back side of the mountain with a bunch of box, rail and pipe features. This ends at a transition and you can cut across the run to the next one that had two 1' boxes and a flat down flat 4" rail which i was hitting pretty decent. At the bottom of this park was a cool SBX course. pretty legit fer sure! Good news-liftees were saying they're anticipating being open until mid april. I'll def be going back up in the next 2-3 weeks for a spring session! If anyone here wants to go lemme kno.
The worst thing about my wknd was that I had to rent a board both days. It was my own fault because I waited until I got up north to fix my bindings. The hardware I got didnít end up fitting and my Ride bindings wouldnít mount with my Union rings. That sucks! Boyne didnít have any hardware to help me out so I was fukkd. So, I had the pleasure of riding a Burton Cruzzer. Yea, it cruised and that was about it. This thing was a frikken tank. Absolutetly no flex or torsion! Although I did get some more credit than normal in the terrain park with a rental board, hah!
