Pine Knob did not suck today!
Thought I'd take a chance and headed out to pine knob. It was my first time there and to my surprise, conditions weren't too bad. Thought it was going to b one giant slab of ice, but the temp was just above freezing most of the day so the snow was soft enough for the board to carve into.
Did really well on the blue runs so on my last couple of runs, I decided to give the black diamond run a shot. 1st time down really blew, but after that,.. Three times, top to bottom without a single fall!! ...and I wasn't riding the brake the whole way down either! Actually let the board go some and really carved some nice turns. Even in the steep! (...what passes for "Steep" in SE MI. anyway!)
I LOVE THIS S@$#!!!! This is the most fun I've ever had standing up!!!
