cannonsburger yeah you could say I'm a park rat so I'm not to worried about it being "to small"

trapper Just keep in mind that Hawk is strictly a small snowpark. Cannonsburg has more all around to offer but if you're into park you'd definitely find Hawk Island worth a visit.

I live between GR and Lansing and work only a few blocks from Hawk Island. That said, I haven't even been there this year but have gone to Cannonsburg a few times. But I'm not much of a park rider either.

I don't get the Michigan hate. Yea the up north hills aren't much by western standards, but it annoys me when southern Michigan park-focused hills are used as an example for riding statewide. I love this state, haters gonna hate.

Besides, we invented the snowboard motherfuckers!

I rode a lot there last spring because they stayed open until April 21. I have only been there twice this year so far but the last time I was there I picked up a season pass ($159). They have a crazy amount of snow and I expect them to be open probably in to May, unless April is super rainy.

Here's my reports:

Hawk Island - March 2

Hawk Island - January 12

It's a pretty sick park. The crew there is all really good riders, so the builds tend to be upper intermediate to advanced. There are usually a few beginner features like flat or down boxes, a rainbow box, and a small jump, but there's definitely an emphasis on bigger and more challenging features like redirect rails, closeouts, donkey dick rails, gap to rails, etc.

The rope tow is a j-bar so you don't have to hold on to it, which is great, because it doesn't wear you out or shred up your gloves like an ordinary rope. You can get tons of laps in pretty easily, without wasting all that energy holding on to the rope. They've got some picnic tables and there's always a bonfire going in the firepit at the base. Also a warming hut across the path with some concessions (chips, soda, gatorade, water, coffee, etc.) and bathrooms.

I think individual lift tickets are $20/day, and there is a $5 parking fee.

For sure. Haters gonna hate, but whatever. Sure the "mountains" suck but there are some really good terrain parks at C-burg, Nub's Nob, Hawk Island, Schuss Mountain, Pine Knob and Mt. Brighton. Gotta make the most out of what we have

cannonsburger cool, yeah its kinda static. thanks

F1EA Nice. Looks well produced, good fun and good riding. With a bit more experience and more varied footage i think you'd do even better...

I prefer color as well, but this had a really nice mood. i think you thought outside the norm and nailed it with b&w.

For longer videos i guess a few flowy sequences are always nice, and also some other type of riding, just to mix it up a bit.

Yeah, I was about to say based on the location I'm assuming you're in Michigan which means shitty "mountains". Sorry 'bout that.
