I usually end up on my own.
There are only a few people that will follow me.

slyder These Glades are all natural and un-managed and marked as glade runs on the trail map. This is a state park and they frown on cleaning them up, even though I wish they still would. A ton of large rocks if there isn't enough snow can and will mess you or your board up.
The year before the oldest nosed a boulder and dented the steel on his brand new board good. I was able to pull it out a bit.

It is pretty shallow in the video I posted, higher up the hill there is a "much" steeper grade. Way over any of our abilities to ride in. Actually I don't think anyone in the group hit the harder stuff last year. The same year my oldest broke his board in the glades, Hurricane SBF member that road with us and his buddy, were hitting the harder stuff. I couldn't follow them. I joined them where it mellowed out.

Last year when we were there, they had a ton of fresh snow. Some of our lines were fresh powder on the path. Some lines were untracked till you hit them!! We had a blast in there. We didn't ride the park at all that weekend, since most of us that met up dont have this kind of tree riding. We all kinda just wanted to hit the kind of terrain we either don't have or never ridden much. I can confidently say we all had a blast riding in there.

Here is a pic of my sons best friend messing around you can kinda see the boulder under the pile and the fresh snow

chomps1211 Oh wow! That looked fun. You're fortunate to have some really wide open tree riding there! Now, I'm not trying to take anything away from your son's riding,.. but it appeared like that glade had some pretty mellow slope to it. (…could just be a trick of the wide angle view, but even so, it didn't seem to have any real "steep" to it.) Do you know if that's a thinned, maintained, or marked glade run, or did he just venture into some trees off of a marked run?

I only bring it up because the so called "Glade Runs" that we have at Boyne? As far as I or anyone I've spoken to can determine,.. even tho they are marked as Glades. They are not thinned or maintained at all. I think they are just using the summer bike & hike trails thru the thick woods!

Whenever I have gone in? The trees are tight enough that there was usually only a choice or two of lines you could take. And since I attempted this after some of the deeper snows, those few lines where a packed & rutted chute! Not unlike a toboggan run. As a result, I couldn't pick my own line around trees and if/when I couldn't turn as tight or quick as the chute required? I would find myself being launched up n out the side of it. Hence my tendency to try and hook a tree or branch to stop myself! LOL!

I would love to have some tree areas like that around here to get some practice in!

Hahaha!! Yeah,.. I found I have a really bad habit of trying to reach out to grab trees or saplings when I find myself going off the rails and getting out of control in the glade. NOT the smartest thing to do. I need to break that habit next time I decide to venture in before I break an arm or worse!! :signlol:

Btw Slyder,.. Can't view the clip. It's listed as private. Can you change settings on it?

Yup! I'd say it's official,.. This is a threadjacking!! Everybody remain calm and nobody gets hurt!
