dfitz364 Ohio guys here to crash the party, but if you guys are ever ridding in the SE part of Michigan, let me know! I'm only like 1.5 hours from Detroit so really wouldn't be out of the question to come ride for a day!

Also, have tossed around the idea of going up to Boyne with a buddy of mine from here at some point. Would be a 4 day trip type deal with 2 riding days. I'll have to keep you all posted, but if anyone would be interested in coming and riding with us, the more the merrier!!

sabatoa Yeah, @trapper will prolly start getting more active here in late November/December.

Most of you guys are from SE Michigan. I'm in Lansing and he's a little west of me.

ctoma Outside of trapper?

sabatoa haha, I'm definitely open to a group watch thing with the crew here.

My place is pretty small and outside of trapper I'm the one away from the rest of you guys so it would probably be easier for me to join you all than for everyone to come to me.

ctoma So hinting about getting an invitation to The Fourth Phase viewing party didn't work....

sabatoa Last season was especially bad in December up north, the worst December since I started riding. I don't expect it to be like that again this season -but yeah SE Michigan doesn't get many dumps.

We have our annual Boyne Thanksgiving trip booked- hopefully we won't have to cancel again this season. Two years ago it was perfect, last season we canceled and I don't think I rode until the last week of December.

Where do you ride ctoma? North west lower peninsula (Cadillac and north towards Petoskey) get lots of snow during a normal winter.
A viewing party for The Fourth Phase? My invitation must have been lost in the mail...

We went to Boyne Highlands last year 12/28 - 12/30. Snow conditions were poor, just a few lifts and runs were open.

I haven't been riding much locally due to coaching youth baseball (indoor practices throughout the winter on weekends really interferes with getting up north). Since my son decided to retire from travel baseball I am no longer coaching so my winter weekends have been freed up.

I used to get the MSIA White Gold Card and my buddy and I would use it at Nubs, B-Highlands, B-Mountain, Caberfae and then the SE MI hills - Holly, Alpine, Brighton, Pine Knob.

We take an annual trip west and will be returning to Park City in February.

ctoma ^ Watch a whole bunch of snowboard videos, that might get you through.

I wish Michigan would show more than just the annual Warren Miller movie.

sabatoa Holy crap guys I got the bug so bad.

With the hot summer giving way to cooler days recently, my mind has gone straight to thoughts of the season and mountains that are starting to see some snow out west.

I dunno how I'm going to manage the next 90-some days until my first scheduled (fingers crossed on weather) trip.
