Snow up north this weekend was really good; hardpack groomers but bluebird skies and great weather made for some fun riding. There is really no rain in the forecast this week and they might get some light snow later in the week so anyone planning to head up north this weekend for closing weekend should have superb conditions. Honestly it was like January conditions both days.

I just heard about that spring board meeting at Boyne but I doubt I'll be able to make it up there, I will be returning from Utah on Friday so chances that the wife would allow me to go up to Boyne after I've been gone for a week is about 0%

I finally got around to mashing up a silly little video this weekend, it's the first I've ever done. It's nothing like what you guys do but it's our first year on the hill and we're having fun.

The cool thing about making this is that it gave me ideas on what I want to do next season.

Anyways, I ain't posting it on the main page, just sharing with you guys;

YouTube - Snowboarding

(no idea how to embed the vid)

She snowboards now, started learning a few seasons back. Still very much a "beginner" but she doesn't fall any more which is good

parks were winding down there were a few small jumps 10' and 15' ish and a few smaller ones that I didn't hit. A down rail & flat box & funbox (this was kind of sketchy) in the same run as the jumps. Their other park area also had been trimmed, there was a kicker with a barrel jib or whatever, a snow spine/hip, and about a 20' flat double-barrel rail and a c-box. That's about it but still some features available and some log jibs to be found in the woods.

Didn't do much jibbing other than a few boardslides and log jibs in the woods. played a bit on some natural stuff and hit the jumps a couple times:
